This restaurant came recommended from several sources. We had fresh seafood for our dinners. The flavors were excellent. We are from the eastern shore of the US and were very satisfied with the quality of the seafood at this restaurant.

This is a little pricy but, you get excellent quality and a fresh and flavorful meal. The scallops were great and my wife's hake was the best she has had thus far in Ireland. Good wine pours as well.
