This venue is really lovely from a scenery point of view...right on the beach and the lodge is very 'fairy tale'...like an old princess castle!
We were at a function here and boy was the food bad. Our dinners arrived really late....lots of the other tables were finished desert before our main courses arrived. Food was stone cold...yuk! Food was very 'blah' in general...nothing special at all. And for the price you would expect good...even mediocre would be better than what we got.
The food was the talk of the table..and not in a positive sense! I was very shocked at the quality of the food to be honest and at how they don't seem to be set up to cater for large crowds..even though they do weddings/functions etc.....they are all held in a tent and I reckon the food must be cooked elsewhere and brought down to the tent without being covered or something as it was just stone cold!
The food was the kind you might pay €10 for in a Sunday carvery. Not what you expect from a supposed high quality hotel!! They really need to improve themselves...perhaps Donald Trump will do this!
