“Out of town delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Beautiful Fresh seafood at a very reasonable price. We went for dinner and because it was so dark we couldn't see the view, bit of a shame because it would have topped off a beautiful dining experience. I would therefore recommend lunch here to tickle all your senses.

“What a delicious treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We seldom have 3 courses for lunch, but the choices were irresistable. Offering an option of 3 oysters meant that I could comfortably order a main course. Pasta with fresh aparagus and half a dozen more of my favourite ingredients - magnificent. Brian had the fish and prawn bisque followed by a perfect Atlantic Sole. We couldn't resist caramalised seasonal vegetabls with philo and icecream, for him, and an Irish coffee for me to round of a delicious meal in a beautiful restaurant.
The chef certainly knows his stuff.

“A let-down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Disappointed. This place was recommended to us, and i then came onto Trip-advisor to read reviews expecting a good dinner experience. The staff wasn't really friendly, and it took a while for dinner to be served. The blue cheese risotto was amazing as a starter, but our main courses was a big let-down. The steak was rubbery and overcooked, the calamari smelled off, and the shrimp wasn't deveined. There is so many better restaurants with better value for money.

“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Sea Breeze B&B which is close to this restaurant and our tour guide had recommended this place for dinner. Excellent service, excellent food and a unique building on the beach! I wish we had had dinner at this place one night earlier as well and had I been staying longer, I would have definitely revisited this restaurant again!

“Lovely low key but classy restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

I really liked this restaurant. It's right on the beach (opposite the hotel we were staying at) and is structurally quirky and interesting. The staff were very nice and the food was excellent. Very reasonably priced for good quality food. Definitely recommend!
