Food was brilliant, staff and owner were incredibly friendly making this outing an amazing experience. All three of us ordered different mains and desserts from the menu, all the food was cooked to perfection and came in large portions at a low price. Dessert was...to die for and the new iced coffee is top class. 100% will come again and I'd highly recommend it to everyone.More

My family and I dined here recently. We all chose different meals from the menu. The lamb was an overcooked tiny portion and a dried out roast potato with mountains of mash to fill the plate up, soggy sprouts topped it off. The kids meals...were burnt pizzas and overcooked chips and dry chicken nuggets. No vegetables or salads accompanied the kids meals. The fish was tasteless. It’s a shame that we had this experience as the staff are lovely but the place just looks a bit tired and needs a makeover as it looks a bit dark and dingy. I’ve been coming here every year since I was a child and it hasn’t changed. This place could be amazing and could do a roaring trade if they overhauled the menu and perhaps retrained the chef as well as using fresh ingredients, not burning frozen food. Amazing views.More

I can't complain about the friendliness of staff or the beautiful surroundings...but the food..... We booked a table for 7 of us and most of our dishes were overcooked and dried out. The kids pizzas were so overdone they were inedible. However the desserts were...all really tasty. The servers are so helpful and the food arrived quickly to the table, it's such a shame it just wasn't good food. The T bone steak at 28 euros which was ordered to be medium rare was well done and tough..the he made burgers were dry and the toasted baps even drier. Shame about the food as the staff are so lovely.More

Family friendly, excellent food, country treat. We have visited this restaurant 3 times in the past year and have never been disappointed. customer care is a priority and the food is just as good. nothing seems to be a problem. as a family of 6...we look to share plates at times and mix starters and main courses to keep everyone happy. No issues here. portions were good and food excellent. fish dishes were wonderful and reasonable. we will be back.More

We came across this guesthouse while out for a spin and wanted some lunch. Luckily this was its first day opening after Covid lockdown. The choice of food was very good and even the fussy eaters should find something they will like. The squid rings...for starters were lovely. I had the beef lasagne for mains. Deserts were homemade and out of this world!!! Worth a visit if you are out this part of the world.More
