Atmosphere was lovely, and the food met expectations - though I would have expected more seafood on the menu. However the waitress didn't inform us of the specials (which i later found out was something i'd have loved!) or what the roasts of the day were (until the order was already through) and came back 5 minutes later to inform one of our party that the starter she'd ordered was off the menu - without producing another menu for us to look at! She also spoke very quietly (had to strain to hear her) and I don't think I saw her smile once. She wasn't rude - but she did lack enthusiasm. Service just needs to be worked on, then you're on to a winner.

Bank Holiday Sunday sitting at a window table with beautiful views down Lough Swilly, delicious rpast beef and a glass of Merlot with dear friends, what else could anyone want? Maybe some sunshine but we are in Donegal so why be unreasonable??

Was really disappointed with the food. We thought it would be fantastic since it was such a nice restaurant. Couldn't eat the main course or dessert. Got another main course in replacement(it was my first time ever to return food - I'd eat anything!!!) it was just about edible. Gave up at dessert & the coffee was even bad. Waste of a beautiful venue.
