Wonderful food and ambience

We had a lovely dinner at the Pink Elephant. The restaurant is beautiful with a lovely bar as part of the dining room. Our dinner was delicious with wonderful service. It was dark, but they are located overlooking the ocean so would be a wonderful view during daylight.

You will not regret visit in this place. We had fish and chips which was lovely. Pint of bulmers on a nice day is what you need to stay out of depression

The service in the Pink Elephant is possibly the best in Ireland. The Irish are a friendly race so I would think the service in this establishment is probably the best in the world. I visited in on a freezing cold Sunday afternoon right at the birth of March. The views from the dining room are spectacular. The restaurant was... More

Just visited The Pink Elephant for lunch to celebrate my friend's hen party. I can't thank Niall and the team more for all they did. The service was fantastic, atmosphere amazing and even though the weather was not in our favour, you can certainly see the attraction in its location with amazing views across the water. The team really laid... More

Spacious, good and friendly service, drinks available, good food, reasonable. It is quite a walk from Bridgeview Farmhouse but it's lovely in the dark, by moonlight and the stars. Alllow fo that coming home.

A wonderful view . Lovely waiting staff. But Management don't want to listen to customers comment. And will speak over you / dismiss you if you complain. Was there for the last time over Christmas. Ordered soup for a starter. I can only presume they started to run low on soup to go around so completely watered it down with... More

I am a regular visitor to this place and could not share any of the less-than-excellent reviews posted here. Great food, great & personal service, beautiful view over Courtmacsherry. Probably not the cheapest but certainly not overpriced - the small extra that you pay is for having a nice personal and not crowded atmosphere.
