My wife had the seafood platter and I had salmon. The service was wonderful and the food divine.
Operated by a couple, the lady provides service and the gentleman is a first rate chef. Highly recommend.

A great walk around this beautiful town, a pint of guinness followed by a fantastic meal at the best fish restaurant around, what could be better. The oysters were great as a starter followed by the signature dish of the house, Cataplana, for me and seafood platter for my wife, both excellent. We shall be back as I want to sample the other delights on the menu, especially "Sweaty Betty", a type of gurnard.

Prawns and chorizo; delicious. Lobster, first rate in a terrific mixture with seafoods and terrific bread. Bellingham blue and mushrooms, so good. Great wines, much enjoyed. We came here with friends of long standing and have booked to return with three times as many friends. Great atmosphere, soft candlelight, warm and welcoming. Highly recommended.

Probably the best culinary experience In Carlingford . Menu detailed, lots of local produce used and extraordinary results, flavoursome , and truly delicious dishes, we were so impressed with the level of service and the food was just so good. We have eaten in many good restaurants world wide and this dining experience can hold its place with any of them. Well done .... Delicious.

The atmosphere and the service were very good and added to the evening.
We were 4 in our group and the meals were very varied in quality.The starter of smoked salmon was excellent the lobster was less sucessfull.. 2 had steaks and were happy with their meat but not with the mushrooms and potatoes. The 4th in our group was ademant that she would not return to eat in this restaurant. . So a very mixed experience.
