We had heard a lot about this place and had read the reviews. Our expectations were therefore raised. The service was particularly slow with a large portion of the wine consumed before our orders were taken. The menu was indeed extensive and looked promising however...More

Always love everything on the menu, but opted for smoked salmon and prawns for starter, followed by salmon for main. So tasty as always.

Hi, we do have vegetarian options Brie, vege curry, stroganoff or baguettes e.g. As everything is cooked fresh any special requests we are happy to deliver providing we have the ingredients. Hope to see you soon.

“Katch27 - Overrated Restaurant?” 3 of 5 starsPending review With regard to our comments on lunch at Katch27 in January 2016. We can understand the owner being unhappy with our review and his comments defending the restaurant. We aim to be truthful and honest about our experience and are only expressing our opinion. As we said in the review, the food was good but nothing special, and the staff were friendly. We would not go out of our way to visit Katch27 in Kircubbin again as we know we can get equally good, or better, food in a cosier atmosphere in other restaurants. Our disappointment stems from our expectations being too high after reading some of the good reviews.
