“SIDE TRIP FOR RESTAURANT AND VIEW”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

We were staying at the Solis Lough Eske Castle. Wanted to enjoy the view and try the restaurant. The bar and restaurant were first rate and the view was perfect. The bar has a great fireplace for meeting new friends and a great place to get warmed up before dinner. I had seen comments on decor, and admit I am a foodie not a decorator.

“Good but over priced”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Ate here twice as we were staying in the hotel. The service was excellent and the food was well cooked but not exceptional for the price.

“Harvey's Point restaurant”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

I dined in the restaurant with a group of friends. Having dined here at their Sunday lunch, Cabaret evening, Christmas Party nights and Weddings and always enjoyed the food immensely I had high hopes for a great evening in the restaurant. However on this occasion I was very disappointed. The starter and dessert were ok but the main course really let the restaurant down. I had the spit-roast roast beef and it was very disappointing. Overall I don't feel it was good value for the price of the meal. We had wine with dinner but we were never asked if we wanted more when our glasses emptied. I would probably choose another restaurant the next time for a special occasion.
