Went on a crowded Friday night, and was lucky enough to sit straight away at a table near the window downstairs. Wife had the half lobster special while I had the Venison pie. Both were delicious, and I thought good value. Service was very friendly, there when needed but not intrusive. Would certainly go again.

Visited this restaurant on saturday 12th Aug, it was busy which is a good sign and had a good buzz about it, we ate upstairs in the restaurant which was quieter but still pleasant. Service was v good, owner had time to talk and recommend dishes on the menu, and even put together a starter not on the menu for one of the fussier diners in our party, nothing was too much trouble. food was excellent, in particular the fish courses, Oysters, crab and smoked salmon starters were all excellent, the quality of the fish was good. For the mains i had a half lobster special which was excellent, steaks were also ordered which were also very good, one slightly overcooked and a pannini which was also very well received. This place is worth a visit if you dont mind paying a couple of extra euros for quality food.

We were three adults and two children 4 and 6. I was delighted with the children's meals, they were quite tasty and the kids loved them. We all ate fish, the three dishes were very flavorful and not overpriced. I loved all the separate areas of the bar, you could hide a romantic couple away in one corner or a crowd with small children in another with everyone being happy and no one feeling moved about. The service was prompt, the food excellent and the location very cosy.

We ate here by chance on the first of a 2 night stay in Donegal town. What a find! We were really looking forward to fish on our holiday in Ireland (am from here, but husband not & we live in a land locked country). The food was just brilliant, the staff were very good. We returned the 2nd night and it was just as great. Can't recommend it enough and not just for fish lovers. Lots on the menue to choose from. Thought the prices were fair, but I would avoid the desserts, or get one to share as very filling.
