“Great view - that's about it!”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We went there for a celebration dinner. My husband had made a reservation. When seated the young girl who served us was pleasant and very professional. The food was okay- nothing fancy. My husband had to ask for his chips that were supposed to come with the meal. Having worked with wine, and knowing a fair bit about it, I asked for the wine list only to be informed by the owner/manager(?) that not worry about the wine, he'll match our wine with our food for us. I was annoyed by that and ordered a bottle of wine anyway regardless of his opinion, The prices are steep, and the food is average, but I guess you're paying for the view. I wouldn't go back there in a hurry.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Came in from the wet and cold of an Irish summers day, warm cosy, hearty meals, engaging staff and good value considering we were a table of four late afternoon.

“Anniversary meal”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Nice surroundings, attentive staff, couldn`t do enough and good food. This is in a great location if you can visit on a summers evening, right on the coast. We`ll be back.
