“Out of the way, but worth the drive ”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

My husband and our 14-year-old daughter ordered a late afternoon meal here and enjoyed the drive from the vacation home we're renting in Castlerock, the food, and the lovely views. We'll probably return again before or after a ferry crossing. The service was friendly and efficient and the food fresh and mostly locally sourced.

“Lovely meal in an excellent place”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We went with friends on a Saturday evening and had about a 20 minute wait. Although we were one of the last groups to be served that evening the staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. The views across the lough are lovely if you get a window table.
The menu had not changed since our last visit, but there is plenty to choose from. All four of us enjoyed our meals varying from duck to fish. We always enjoy the side order of broccoli and cauliflower mornay. The sweets were a lovely way to finish the meal.
We know the Point Bar is out of the way and not to everyone's taste, but we will call again!

“Family Favourite”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

The Point is one of our firm family favourites for food.
Something to suit all tastes on the menu and all reasonably priced. (The Chicken, Goats Cheese and Salsa is one of my personal faves)
The staff are always very welcoming, friendly and efficient and there is a real homely feel, not to mention the stunning views!

“Excellent seafood.”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Quaint restaurant with great fresh seafood. It is difficult to find. Signs to the Point Bar are hard to see. But it is well worth the effort to locate.
