We have been coming to north-west Donegal for many years, and this was the best meal we have had. The staff were welcoming, the surroundings were tasteful, the food was delicious. For a special occasion, it could not be beaten.

My wife and I ,who were staying in the area, had a nice dining experience in this restaurant. Once we had got through the Covid regulations, a bit more awkward for visitors from Northern Ireland who as yet have no digital passport, we were shown...to a cosy little table for two in an alcove. My wife has a severe gluten intolerance but she was well catered for here in all courses. (Not the usual pavlova or ice cream for dessert.) I had an excellent salmon and monkfish dish. Despite the restaurant being very busy there was still a fairly ambient atmosphere and we had a fine dining experience.More

Visited twice to our favourite restaurant, excellent adherence to COVID 19 guidance, beautiful setting, ambiance, delicious food and service. The lobster special was outstanding, best I’d ever tasted. Amazing place. Quality and value.

We recently stayed there and had a fantastic dinner with delicious, fresh seafood. It was a really great experience and all staff were brilliant. Breakfast the next day was equally amazing. The room we had was lovely. Get there and enjoy. You will not be...sorry.More

Meal for 3 was delightful from start to finish. Beautiful setting and the food was delicious. Highly recommend the scallops starter and fish main courses. The pork Belly was great- if you like this Dannie Minnies version is cooked to perfection . Little fella enjoyed...his sausage and mash too. We will definitely be back. Great compliance also with the Covid rules in these difficult times.More

Booked table for 6:30 for 3. Arrived at 6:20 and shown to our table in the corner with all social distance protocols observed. Staff read specials and took our drinks order. Leek canape and bread were a good start before our starters. We had scallops,...prawns and seafood cassoulet between us. All cooked to perfection and very tasty. Mains were lobaster special, pork belly with scallops and seabass. Wide selection of potatoes and vegetables at the table. Again all cooked to perfection with special mention to the seabass that was so light. Finished off with Panna cotta. Service was a bit slow but we did not mind this as we were in no hurry, and it was nice not to feel rushed. Would highly recommend.More

Just had a lovely Birthday meal . Lovely staff atmosphere and food. Pricey? Yes . But worth it. Felt like a special place to eat out. Would recommend.

This was our first meal out since COVID. We joined my sister who lives locally when we were visiting Donegal. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Delicious food...very generous portions. Friendly and attentive staff. Excellent social distancing measures and sanitising measures. All staff were wearing masks and...visors. We had the duck, lamb and steak among other dishes. Disappointing to hear that a table of 10 didn’t show up earlier given how hard you’re working around measures to be trading. Keep doing what you’re doing it’s great and we will be back on our next trip!More
