“Excellent food and great ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We had one of the best chowders I have ever had along with a cracking bowl of fresh mussels and open crab. The service was first class and its set in a beautiful and tranquil location. The ideal location for a chillaxing evening with great food.

“Must talk with Jeremy. Gourmet restaurtant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Fantastic meal. My wife loves fish and that was perfect. I had lamb which I eat in Ireland because it's almost unheard of in USA.
But one must talk with Jeremy. He is funny and informative.
Most entertaining service person one could ever ask for.
Great view of Courtmacsherry Bay from here. Altogether, one of the two best restaurants on our trip.

“Pink Elephant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Went here with family to celebrate a grandparents birthday. Booked for 6.30 - not seated until 8pm. Food was average, nothing to get excited about. Service was the worst part. We hardly saw a waiter all evening. Had to attract waiter attention for everything, drinks, orders, bread, water.... Felt was v. expensive for a pretty average restaurant. The view is the best bit but you can get that anywhere along that coastline. Definitely will NOT return.
