Nice Experience

Good food in pleasant ambiance. Well worth a visit having worked up an appetite on the cliff walk around the Ardmore headland.

We took a little trip to East Cork and Waterford and after a lovely walk on a beautiful beach, we had a late lunch in Whitehorses. There is so much attention to detail in the restaurant itself which gives an indication that the same attention is given to the food. A jug of water and glasses on arrival was much... More

About the only other decent offering food wise in Ardmore outside of the Cliff House Hotel. Lovely appointed restaurant with a good menu choice, we would highly recommend the Dublin Bay Prawns for the main course, you will travel far and wide without success to match this culinary delight. A very pleasant experience in a village that has very little... More

Our family of 7 adults & 2 children are there yesterday at 3 PM. We had generous portions of hake €15, plaice €15, sirloin steak €15, and a sandwich. The steaks were tender, tasty, and cooked to perfection. The potatoes, fries, and fresh vegetables were perfect.

It is A la Carte for lunch. Enough choice. The food is very good. Beautiful presentation and plenty of food. The food was swiftly served. Very friendly staff. It is difficult to avoid dessert as there is an array of nice desserts on display. Wine by the glass is a bit expensive as it is not a generous sized glass.... More

Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and great food. Definitely the creme de la creme of this town. We loved the little waiting room with the fireplace and the cozy rooms where one can have a conversation without shouting.
