“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

The Bay Tree was recommended to us by the bar staff across the road and we couldn't have picked a friendler and more relaxed restaurant. The service was excellent and very prompt. The choice was excellent and less than 25 Euro for a 3 course meal of such high quality standard was amazing. My husband had the lamb shank for his main course and has raved about it since we came home.I had the duck which is not something I would normally order as it always tends to be dry. The duck was so tender and juicy it melts in your mouth! Dessert was scrumptious - creme caramel and homemade honeycomb. I can't recommend the restaurant highly enough and look forward to a return visit. A big thank you to Conor and the staff.

“Still as good if not better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

It's been two years since I was here last, and we went last night. Fabulous is all I can say. Great meal, very friendly and very helpful patient staff. I always find it hard to choose my main course but the girl was a great help. Set menu €25 brilliant and an al a carte too. Well worth a visit. The red house wine is excellent to. Pinot noir.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

The food was great. Service was a bit slow. The Bill was for the wrong amount but we didn't notice until after we left and did not bring it to their attention so in fairness not sure how they would have handled it.

“Lovely restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

We were in Carlingford for the weekend and had dinner here on the Sunday night. The starter Caesar salad was absolutely delicious a great portion which my husband and I shared. My monkfish was good and my husband enjoyed his lamb shank but thought it could have been more tender. We decided to share a chocolate parfait dessert but it was frozen solid and we couldn't manage to cut into it. However, the waitress melted it somewhat and supplied a knife to cut into it and it was tasty.
