This restaurant thoroughly deserves its top ranking. The fish was fresh and perfectly cooked. Fiona seemed to be everywhere at once. This restaurant is a class act.

Unfortunately at the door lovely lady ruined our dreams with sacramental question "Do you have reservation ?" We were just about to return to our car when I said " Oh my, I was here before and I loved it. Now... More

Fantastic Seafood! Make sure you make reservations early, they book up even on a Tuesday night. The mussels are to die for along with their deserts.

Had some really fantastic fish and chips but the best part of the experience was the view of the pier and the Atlantic. Seating is limited but it's worth calling ahead!

Both my partner had a beautiful starter and main course. We were lucky to get a table shortly after opening time. We didn't feel rushed at all to finish our food quickly. Well looked after. Looking forward to next time.

We visited O'Grady's for Sunday lunch and it was SO good. From starters to dessert, it was all delicious! Highly recommend. Also, a very lovely setting by the sea.

We arrived late for our booking and the staff were so nice accommodating despite the kitchen being almost closed. The food was excellent and they made a wonderful snack for our 15 month old daughter. We can't wait to come back.

Thank Aquaba
