“Excellent staff & food!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My husband and I along with our son (when hes home from uni) eat in Donegans quite regularly on a Sunday (upstairs in the restaurant) we have been going for years not just for the fantastic food but for the amazing customer service we receive everytime!
The food here is absolutely superb, especially the FAB-U-LOUS slow cooked roast beef - many thanks to Paul and his team for cooking to absolute perfection everytime!
The amazing Ivan and the girls upstairs take pride in their work and have such a warm welcome to all who enter - a fantastic team who are just naturally friendly and make you feel at home!
If this isnt enough to make you want to eat in this great wee establishment, maybe that its so reasonably priced with great portions will tempt you!!!
When my husband and I want to eat out somewhere relaxed, informal, friendly, such fantastic food and the same in customer service, we head straight here everytime - you would be hard pushed to find better than the restaurant upstairs in Donegans when wanting all of the above!
A BIG thankyou to this excellent, hard working team - we shall be back very soon!

“Simply best pub grub in Bangor”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

The food never fails to deliver, excellent range of choices, extremely friendly and welcoming staff, very generous portions and just an all round winner. The Caribbean curry is a house secret recipe and you can see why!! Good food done exceptionally well, what more could you want?

“great food”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

i was here for a 50th birthday party and the food was great, tasty, hot and plentiful. we had pre=ordered our main course and had a pick n mix starter. the starter was beautiful and great selection, the main course was of a high standard. my only complaint would be the service was a little slow but considering it was a big party i can forgive this as the food was worth waiting for. the value was amazing and i would definitely go back again.

“best roast beef in bangor”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

on arrival you are warmly greeted by either lynne, brenda or ivan. no booking sheet/book. after a friendly chat you are shown to a table. a comprehensive and varied menu is offered and any food allergies addressed. the food which is prepared by paul gray and his team is beautifully cooked and presented and portions are generous . the slow roast beef is to die for. you would hardly need a knife it is so tender. steaks are well recommended and the staff go out of their way to ensure an unforgetable dining experience. the place is olde world with old antiques and artefacts.
a must visit restaurant.
