No reservation but called in on Easter Monday for some food. The waitress got us a table and we made our food selection. We ordered the seafood chowder. The food was really well cooked, great flavors and really enjoyable. I have to mention the fantastic service from our waitress, she was very attentive and had a very pleasant and helpful... More

Went here for a late lunch/early dinner after a walk along the cliffs Food was very tasty and staff friendly. Perfect spot to replenish the energy after the cliff walk.

We called unexpectedly for Sunday lunch and they were fully booked out but made room for us in the bar, which was no great hardship. The staff, every one are lovely and I had a very tasty sirloin steak with probably the best chips I had ever. Well done to all.

Even though it was late afternoon by the time we finished the Cliff Walk (highly recommended) the restaurant was still quite full - quite a few came in after us also. The service was good, friendly and knowledgeable and the food was really lovely. We both had different fish dishes, traditional Fish and Chips and Hake fillet - both very... More

Nice and polite reception. Mussels were great although I have to say that the portion could be a little bit bigger. Great steak, veg cooked to perfection. The only suggestion (for improvement purposes) - please provide a few specials on the board as the choice on the menu is limited and I guess wouldn't attract to be regular client if... More

Visited here with a couple of friends. Situated nicely with a view of the sea. Was looking forward to some nice seafood. Friendly reception. We found the menu to be very limited. There were only two fish main courses plus one steak and one duck dish. Asked if it was possible to have the cod and chips which was being... More

We had a meal which should have been €44 early bird but paid €49 which is crazy. We got 2 fish and chips and 2 desserts which were very poor. Apple crumble which was granola on top of apple, burnt top on the creme brulee. If they were to charge this extra €5 to every one i'm sure people would... More
