Had a generally excellent meal at the Curragower on Friday 27 July, but there was one problem.
The goat's cheese and black pudding salad was extremely poorly presented visually and the dish did not work in terms of flavour and texture. The black pudding was slimy rather than oaty and the raspberry coulis was 'lashed onto' the dish and was sickly sweet rather than sharp. The flavour of each of the individual components and the salad were completely overwhelmed by the coulis which tasted more like the raspberry sauce one gets on an ice cream.
I did eat it all, but it really was disappointing and wasn't at all what I had hoped for. So avoid this dish.
Everything else was excellent (esp the calamari), the service was great and the atmosphere was so congenial.
Tried to bring the problem dish to the bar's attention via the Curragower's website but the 'contact us' mail area did not work and I could not find an e-mail address.
