Book a romantic dinner in the restaurant at The Hoste Hotel, where the Chefs create dishes that owe much to locally sourced produce, not least a great selection of local seafood from the nearby coast. We have a high quality, informal, relaxed atmosphere with very friendly and efficient staff. The imaginative menu is complimented by a 200-bin wine list that includes some keenly priced classics.

We went for dinner and I can't remember enjoying a meal quite so much for a long time. Scallops were to die for as was the Rack of Lamb. As for the Fine Apple Tart, it was indeed fine, very fine indeed. Coffee hot and tasty. Excellent meal, thank you.

We ate in the hotel restaurant both nights of our stay at the Hoste and didn't regret it. The service was attentive, the fish dishes were beautifully cooked and presented (really recommend the Seabass) and the steak I had on the second night perfectly cooked.

We pushed the boat out and had lots of different things. The seafood plate was worth it. Lovely staff. I know this place gets mixed reviews but I think it stands out still. It's a little bit more money than other places but feels a treat.

The restaurant is very well decorated, staff are friendly and well presented, although we didn't have one the desserts looked amazing when coming out to other tables!
