Organised a Meal at the Kingfisher for a Hen Party. The food is amazing, the service was excellent and throughout organising the meal nothing was too much trouble. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend and look forward to visiting again soon...More

Had the pleasure of eating here and I can highly recommend. Good menu without too much choice but really interesting options. None of us where disappointed. Can highly recommend Asian pork disk with sticky rice.

We ordered starters, mains and desserts and everything was perfect. Yummy food, great wine and very friendly staff. Also loved the set up - really beautiful restaurant and reasonably priced for what we got. If you visit Carlingford definitely try here. Booking in advance recommended.
