Love this place. Is a bit expensive but worth it for a special occasion. Had lobster and crab claws with garlic butter, um um!. Husband had seafood platter, beautiful. Sticky toffee pudding has to very one of the vest I've ever had. Husband had Eton mess, again fab. Can't wait to go back.

Magee's Bistro is one of the most continuously reliable restaurants for exceptional sea food, local meats and weekly specials. The menu offers something for everyone's taste yet no option receives less attention to detail from the experts in the kitchen. A wonderfully busy, informal, atmospheric bistro with an adjoining wine and cocktail bar. The staff all have excellent knowledge of... More

I loved the fish starter and chicken main course. The place was Full and lovely buzz but typical of Carlingford, quite expensive relative to city restaurants, even those with a Michelin star

We visited Magees as part of a one night stay in Carlingford. When we went in, the place wasn't too busy, there was a lovely, calming atmosphere. The place was well lit and laid out. We were greeted warmly at the door and given a nice table by the window. The service was friendly and not rushed at any stage,... More

Our group of 4 adults arrived for the first dinner sitting of the evening at 6:30pm (the second sitting is at 8:30pm). I had made a reservation and it's just as well because every seat was taken. We decided against starters and ordered a lovely house Rioja to go along with the steaks we had all ordered for mains. Two... More

Meals arrived as soon as we sat down: I ordered the 1/2 lobster, prawns and crab claws. While it was delicious, I felt a bit... More
