We chose a table in front of an open kitchen where we could see the chef and his crews preparing our dishes. The service was very good and energetic by young staff.

Very accommodating staff - it was busy when we arrived but they managed to find a table for us (even if it was in the bar with loads of hens & stags passing through on a Saturday night). Food was great - oysters au naturel were a real treat and the seafood platter provided good portions and variety of types... More

First visit to Magees. We arrived early but was given choice to either have drink at bar or go straight to our table which we did. Cocktails were ordered and served while we selected our starter and main. - soft shell crab and fillet steak and lobster combo. Both lived up to expectations! Thank you, a really enjoyable night and... More

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
