Fantastic meal and amazing view

Never though I would say this but the hospitality we had tonight and the quality of the food was better than Smugglers. Can't think of one thing I would improve. Seriously recommend the chicken curry. Thank you.

I had family lunch there recently. The food was excellent. The view is breathtaking. The staff and the owners were so helpful and made you feel at home. Anthony and Pauline are wonderful hosts. Highly recommended.

Probably the warmest place in Ireland. Pauline and Anthony McNicholl are wonderfull owners. Me and 7 friends stayed there 4 nights for the Rory Gallagher International Festival. Rooms are clean, food is delicious and there is a fantastic Atlantic Ocean view. Thank you for everything.

I'm writing this very late but.......this has to be one of the worst places I've ever been to EVER - I've never ever encountered such rude staff and managers - whatever you do don't make a complaint - they'll make it your fault and then threaten you! Very stressful experience!

This restaurant has the most fantastic views out over the Atlantic. The Food was fantastic with a great choice on offer. The staff were so friendly and accommodating and so professional.

I'm compelled to write this as a disappointed visitor to this restaurant in recent days. Can I first say that the food was actually quite tasty, and of course the setting is wonderful near the beautiful beach at Rossnowlagh. The plates unfortunately were as cold as outside the restaurant and much of the food regrettably also. I really cannot understand... More

The general astosphere was lovely, turf fire in the background, a good smell of irish country living. The friendly staff, resturant was busy. Menu had a good variety to chose from. I had salmon which was cooked to perfection. Catered well for gluten, wheat and dairy free diet. Food was well presented. My friend had monkfish, portion looked small but... More

Fish was delicious, chips were either cooked in old oil or over cooked. The peas were from a tin. Hoped for better. Standard fare for a pub with a sea view. Staff were friendly and service was good. Would go back for the fish and the view..
