“An Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Visited this restaurant on Saturday night with relatives. There were eight of us and we tried several dishes from the menu. Every one of them was excellent - the fish platter was superb! Everyone enjoyed their meal and the service was first class - thanks to Kay - can't wait to go back!

“Amazing culinary experience! Thee Hotspot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Magee's Bistro is most definitely the place to go in Carlingford at the moment. We were a party of 13 celebrating my Dads 60th birthday. The bar had a great atmosphere where we enjoyed cocktails (go for cosmo) before being brought to our table. Very well organised restaurant staff were excellent very attentive&professional! Very good winelist also. Fish was simply wonderful surf&turf superb! Every single dish was exquisitely presented and enjoyed by all. We brought cake and it came out with sparklers And then glasses of prosecco were brought complimentary really lovely touch! Magee's just made the occasion more special what a wonderful nights craic&memories!!!! Thank you to all the staff Definitely be back Murphy&Curran Families Co. Down

“Beautiful Fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

My Husband & I visited Carlingford for a short 2 night on 15th Oct. We ate in Magees Bistro on the Monday night. The food was gorgeous. I had the crab & avocado to start & the Sea Bass for my main course & my husband had the sea food gratin to start & the halibut for his main. We enjoyed it so much we decided we couldn't go anywhere else on the 2nd night. The food was just as good on the 2nd night & the sticky toffee pudding I had for dessert was to die for. If we would visit Carlingord again we will be back in Magees for more fish.
