I was treated to a decadent birthday lunch here and what a treat that was. The view over Carlingford lough is simply stunning, ask for a table in the window and enjoy watching the sun sparkle on the water as you dine!
The staff were very warm, welcoming and just lovely, passionate about the menu and well informed. The mini loaves served warm in a hessian sack were a delight as were our beautifully presented starters, each one delicious! Raymond Mcardle has an obvious talent and is a chef to watch.
He was presenting the best of regional produce each dish a feast for the eyes and a delight on the palette. With an extensive and impressive wine list we were in no hurry nd though it was well into mid afternoon were not in any way hurried or felt we had to finish up and go. Our mains were superb and we had a selection of sides which did not disappoint, all gorgeous.
We even managed to share a desert and had perfect Irish coffees, we were obviously not driving!
The whole experience was wonderful and I will definitley return, maybe stay over and go for dinner next time .........
