We loved everything. The food was respectful to the sea, but not a slave to it. Everything was well-prepared. Even the simple lettuce salad was a delight: fresh, light and interesting.
While I am sure the fish is superb, we were ready for something else. Annie's chicken had one of the most flavorful sauces ever. I wanted to lick the bowl of my past dish.
The secret here is an appreciation for flavors and sauces that take the dishes to a higher level. They were rich without being heavy and flavorful without lacking subtlety.
And, by the way, the sticky pudding dessert was perfect to share.
The atmosphere was warm and classy. Again respectful to place but not a slave to the cliches. Great jazz in the background set a mood without overpowering.
This restaurant is not in your face on the harbor but is easy to find on lower Main. It's only a few more steps and so worth it. It would be a hit in any large American city.
Finally, such nice people. The owner was as nice as could be. Michael, the waiter, called his home to confirm the name of a convenient hotel for us on our route. We love the Irish people. And this restaurant
