“Possibly the best meal I've ever had in a restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

My experience of this restaurant last night has prompted me to write my first ever review! This is an exceptional place.

We had wandered around Carlingford earlier that day browsing at the menus of all the various restaurants there, but the Bay Tree stood out for myself and my wife. The staff were excellent - my wife had mentioned in passing that it was my birthday that day, so a surprise mini selection of treats were prepared for me for my dessert. Apart from that the starter (duck samosa) and main (pork belly) were perhaps the nicest meals I have had anywhere (including the likes of Chapter One in Dublin). The individual flavours contained in each of the dishes has to be experienced in person and cannot be described properly in words (or at least I cannot do them justice!).

A really exceptional place in terms of service and quality, with the price being reasonable for the quality also. We will definitely be back.

It was a friendly welcoming restaurant. Food was first class and portions generious. Prices a little expensive but great service made up for that
