“Disappointing!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Beautiful setting with immaculate accommodation but what a disappointment regarding the food! Reminded us of a breakfast we had many years ago in a B&B in Blackpool - very poor! Cornflakes arrived with milk already in bowl and I asked for scrambled egg and bacon and that is exactly what came - one very small piece of bacon; nothing French about it at all. Need to take a leaf out of a wonderful B&B in Kelso. Wont be back - such a pity.

“"Yet Another Country Feed"”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Went for Sunday lunch here today for my birthday. This restaurant promotes itself as an upmarket french restaurant. It is really no different than the standard boring Sunday lunch served in any cheap restaurant on a Sunday in Fermanagh. I was especially disappointed with the vegetables served which were a bowl of tinned peas and carrots and a few baby potatoes. It was quite pricey for the standard of food served at £19.95 for three courses excluding tea or coffee. The setting is beautiful, but the food and service are definitely lacking!

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

French-style food in a gorgeous setting at a purpose-built restaurant.
Sounds hard to beat, and indeed there is nothing in Fermanagh to quite match it.

We've had a la carte and table d'hote meals, and they've all been great.

Table settings and decor are immaculate, and it's a lovely place to have a drink as you look over your menu at the view .

The service, as noted by others, can be dodgy. It's never bad, but there is never anyone to greet customers - you're left standing there until someone notices you. The bar staff need more training too.

It would be a shame if this fault were to put you off, though. It's the only flaw at the Watermill !

“Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

I and 7 others visited the restaurant on Sunday, we found it difficult to choose because all the food sounded delicious! Eventually everyone had decided what to eat and we were not disappointed, every morsel was gorgeous, empty plates all round, The only fault I had was that the service was very slow, then again the staff are French and even more relaxed than Fermanagh people! The food equals the Lough Erne Resort and was simply wonderful, also the drinks are bar prices not hotel prices, I hope I will be back soon. If the weather was nice the view would be outstanding, looking straight at the lough,there are lovely landscaped gardens and terraces where you could sit outside and enjoy Fermanagh.
