“great view”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We had just played Royal County Down and needed some lunch and beer to cure our ills.
I ordered a special, a dish that had butter on the bottom ( how can you go wrong) with mash potatoes, sea trout, and some shrimp in a lovely sauce on top. It was the best meal I had in my 4 week vacation. I think the place could be hit and miss but it was a hit for me that day.

“Great food”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

This was the beginning of our great food in Ireland. Fell in love with the wheaten bread. I had crab claws that were fresh and delicious. Good service.

“Reviews Better than Reality”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

The Restaurant has a wonderful view out to see and overlooking the harbour. We were disappointed with our fish dishes, they were dry and over cooked. The service was only fair.
Maybe we hit a bad day. The Restaurant has a good ambiance. Perhaps we were spoilt earlier on in our trip with really fresh and well cooked sea food. We saw the fresh catch earlier in the evening, but thought the food was frozen and not fresh.

“Excellent food ,service poor”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

went here with family for lunch, inside only had one other full table, the other tables were not clean, when we were seated the waitress was slow to come to our table for the order, even then things were forgotten from the order, the service was poor and I cant even put it down to it being a busy day, The food is fantastic its just a shame the service wasnt !
