Owned by a westerner this place has been there for years and to be fair seems to draw a good crowd. However food is overpriced and nothing special compared to other restaurants on the road side. Wines especially have over the top prices.

The food is excellent at Ciaran's & the surroundings are beautiful and relaxed. The service was slow but adequate. The atmosphere is peaceful, it's the perfect place to enjoy good food and a relaxing drink with sea views.

We had gone to ciarans for lunch on a saturday. It turned out to be an awful experience. We had ordered sweet fresh lime soda which was served without sugar, when we requested to change it they served us lime water which was tasteless. Portion size of Chicken tikka was small with just 5 tiny pieces and some salad. Mixed... More
