Stopped here for a quick lunch. Service friendly and fast. The calamari was served in a very nice tempura batter but lacked bite. €7.00 for a glass of ok Sauvignon Blanc - very pricey.

We visited the restaurant twice as a family in August, both times they were very accommodating for the two vegan members of our party, the food was delicious and it was fantastic to be offered a meal that doesn't just consist of vegetables. They already had egg free pasta in and had no trouble altering the sauce. Would definitely recommend... More

Great town center location restaurant with excellent thin crust pizza menu & several locally sourced seafood in addition to local meals. I overheard another table requesting vegetarian substitutes & the request was easily made & well received. The Owner was present & very attentive to many of the customers.

Tried Derryclare for the 1st time, the meal was hot and very enjoyable, not a big variety to choose from, hey but when your hungry food is all you need. Service a bit slow but the again it was a busy time.

Popped in the evening before and booked a table and were seated in the window area overlooking the street. The big lad, front of house, greeted us as usual in his friendly manner and drinks, locally produced, were quaffed whilst waiting on the meal. I ordered the 10 oz steak - well done no pink, and my wife had the... More

Recommended by locals, we were tired of seafood, so pizza was to our liking. It was thin crust, and very tasty. The staff was smiling but seemed new. They were moving fast but we felt needed a third person. It was very good. Romantic, too. Very nice atmosphere. Good price as well.
