Its refreshing to have a proper restaurant in Carrigart that serves qualiy food. Now, in The Carrigart there's the Public bar, and in there you can have tasty 'pub grub' . Although I didnt partake of it the plates of food we saw headed that way looked extremely tempting.
Now we dined in The Carrigart restaurant. This has all been newly refurbished, and does look really good. When you enter throught the main entrance you are met with a large open fire and a warm welcome from the manageress Maggie. It was obvious from the outset that they wanted us to have an enjoyable evening. We sat in the foyer at the fire and had our pre-dinner drinks and our order taken. The menu was like a breath of fresh air to read. Lots of tasty dishes on offer. ( see att photos). I opted for the Mussels in a rich creamy sauce served with fresh bread to mop it up, as a starter. I followed that with scallops served on a bed of cabbage with a ginger and chive butter and steamed bacon. There were lots of sides to choose from, but I left it to the chef to choose for me as he would know which would compliment it best. I got roast baby potatoes in rosemary and the flavours on the plate were a delight to taste. Perfectly cooked and presented. My wife had Mediterranean Chicken and again it passed the presentation, and taste tests with flying colours. The chef made the effort to come from the kitchen to our table to make sure we were enjoying our dinner. A nice touch, and it showed me he was proud of his handywork and really cared that it was enjoyed. I will certainly return, and will look forward to it. Pricewise we felt we had got value for money. Aisling, and all the other staff were genuinely lovely people who made our evening special Thanks to all concerned.
