“First Class Food / Service / Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends and it most definitely lived up to expectations. When we entered the restaurant we were seated at a table which had the most beautiful view of Strangford lough. The service in this restaurant is excellent and the atmosphere within the restaurant was very relaxing. I was very impressed by the fact that there were a number of paintings by local artists had been placed around the restaurant, its great to see a local business supporting local artists.
There is a wide variety of food on the menu and our starters were delicious and because we were in Portaferry which seems like a traditional fishing village we thought we'd try the Lobster. The lobster was ridiculously delicious. The food was so fresh and the taste did not disappoint, a brilliant restaurant which went far beyond our expectations. Top marks for the food, atmosphere and service. The deserts did not disappoint either. A brilliant restaurant which was busy the whole time we were there so I would recommend booking tables.
We will be back very soon and would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

First class.

“Lunch downstairs - superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We got off the ferry and met Gran and Grandad for lunch in the Sailing Club. We were the only ones in there and the service was outstanding. We had the best Prawn Open sandwich ever - fresh and unusal salads - fabulous locally caught prawns and beautifully presented. This place should be packed!

“Great place to eat at weekends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

This place is outsanding. the food is excellant, lots of choice. the staff are second to none-just ask for Stephanie, she will go out of her way to do what she can for you.
The price of the food is VALUE FOR MONEY.
We went with a large party and the treatment was second to none
You can eat in the Bar downstairs. Staff are very friendly
The Restaurant overlooks the Strangford Lough and the views are stunning
