We were recommended to try this place and were not disappointed. The location is stunning and the food was reasonably priced and of a high standard. The seafood stroganoff was particularly tasty.

Stopped at Craobh Haven Marina whilst Storm Hector passed over. Didn't book (would recommend booking) but they managed to give us a table for 6. Everyone had seafood, which was delicious and good value. The beer was also outstandingly good. Really friendly and helpful staff.
