Together with a dedicated and hard working team, my aim is to ensure all our customers enjoy a superb dining experience in the Hotel. The Silver Tassie Hotel has established itself as one of the town's most reliable establishments for good food and quality hospitality using only using the freshest ingredients in all our dishes. We take great pride in our food, as it is all freshly made on the site by our highly skilled and creative culinary staff. All our food is sourced locally and where possible using sustainable produces, all of our meats, fish and vegetable have full traceability. We have carefully planned our menus to ensure there is something to cater for all tastes with a great emphasis on fresh seafood and locally sourced meat with our "Tassie Steaks" our specialty dishes. Our Sunday Carvery Lunch is an experience not to miss out on with 5 courses to be enjoyed during a pleasant afternoon of dining. Children in your party can enjoy our Kiddies corner to make the day out relaxing and fun for all the family. Eating should be an experience, which is why we taken great care to ensure the restaurant is the epitome of comfort, wood paneled walls, crisp white linen table cloths, a large stone fireplace and sumptuous leather chairs ensure that the whole dining experience is a comfortable and memorable one.

“Old Reliable”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

While visiting relatives in Letterkenny visited the "Tassie" on 2 occassions.Menu is broad enough to meet most tastes.We had fish and Lamb dishedsthat were competently prepared and presented.Emphasis is on consitancy rather than creativity.

“Not good”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We ate here as part of the weekend package we had with our rooms - two nights b&b and a dinner. First off, you are given a special set menu to choose from with the package. You don't get to choose from the nicer looking options in the main restaurant menu. The set menu's options aren't as interesting.

The service was excellent and I would not fault it. Everyone in the restaurant was really helpful and super efficient.

The problem was the food itself. Three of us ordered steak which came out pure red, and they had asked for medium. The other three ordered the sea bass, which is usually delicious. This was not seasoned and barely cooked. Plus, it was full of bones. Every bite I took, i had to pull out 1-3 bones. It put me off my meal altogether.

Main course and desert was average. Overall, apart from the service, it was a disappointing meal.

“Wonderful hotel for food”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We had carvery lunch here today was really lovely i had a slice of beef and a slice of lamb with all the trimmings and it was as always delicious, I also had soup and cold starter was stuffed!!! Still had room for dessert must have a new chef for desserts as this was the best choice of desserts ive ever seen at the 'Tassie' and i tried about 5 and they were all delicious. Weve never had a bad meal at the Silver Tassie and would recommend it. Carvery lunch 21.50 for adults but well worth it as it does you all day and night!!!!
