Stopped here as part of an CIE tour and loved it - a casual atmosphere with a friendly staff made us feel like locals enjoying a meal instead of tourists. Clean and bright with a great location!

We ate here for a few nights whilst staying in Portmagee. The service was excellent and all staff we had contact with, were exceptional. We ate across the road on the outdoor seating late in the evening. Wonderful setting to compliment the gorgeous summer weather! Food was reasonably priced and was delivered to the table reasonably quickly after ordering. Nothing... More

My wife & I were in Portmagee mid July visiting my brother, his wife and his daughter. We had glorious weather. We were having pre dinner drinks by the waterside outside The Bridge Bar watching the activity in the harbour. We later adjourned to the bar to dine from the bar menu which was really extensive and fantastic value. It... More

It's only when I get back here I know what I have been missing! The added bonus this year was the weather. But as always the food, atmosphere, music, craic, but most importantly the people were great. What a welcome. Almost like the long lost son coming home. For the hard pressed punter the prices have not increased like in... More

Made a visit here after getting settled in our room at a local B&B. The music was amazing as well as the dancers. It was a very packed place as it was one of the few pubs/bars in this town. The place was friendly, met a few locals and had some great conversation. Not many places to sit but that's... More

We stopped here late in the day. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The menu had a reasonable range of meals on offer and the specials board had an array of additional options. The portions were a good size and shouldn't leave you hungry.

Our second night we tried the bridge bar on a Monday evening. It was pretty busy both at the bar and for meals but we got great service. Cold draft beer, good selection in menu and lots of specials. Pork roast was delicious, fish and chips v good. So far great meals in this town, sad to leave!

My husband and I were told about this restaurant by the owner of a nearby BnB. She was correct--the place serves a lovely dinner! The wait staff was friendly, professional, and prompt in delivering our food--which was excellent! Nice atmosphere, too!

Visited here at 7.30pm on a Monday evening as it was within walking distance of our B&B and had to wait a few minutes for our table. There seemed to be a lot of staff who were rushing about non-stop to keep up. The service, as a result, was excellent. The food was really tasty and the portions were huge.... More
