“Great food, great service”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

When I find myself back in Waterville (a few times a year) this is one of my first port of calls. The atmosphere is relaxed and cosy and the conversation is always flowing, everyone in the sheilin really makes you feel at home. And the food....firm favourites include the homemade breads, crab gratin, duck, steak and most definitely the monkfish. Good value for money and a must if you are a seafood fan visiting Waterville. :-)

“Gorgeous seafood”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Found this restaurant by accident and what a find!
Service was spot-on-staff friendly, warm, helpful, inclusive and yet recognised need to allow space to customers when dining. We both enjoyed seafood meals and all four items we chose from menu were superbly cooked and well presented. Would certainly recommend this place to friends visiting the area.

“Fishy!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

If you love fish and feel like a decent sit-down meal while on hols in this area then don't miss this place. Other food available too . Not fast-food so give yourself time , relax and enjoy. Starters include fried prawns in garlic, squid or crab claws. Delicious!!!
