Thank you to all the staff in the harbour restaurant, especially Paul and Shaun for making Dads 50th a special night. The food excellent, it was very tasty and great portion sizes, the staff were so friendly and helpful. The wheel chair accessibility for granny...was a bonus! The service over all was very professional and as always it proved to be a fantastic place to dine especially for any special occasions.More

There is no possible way this should be the highest rated restaurant in Donegal Town. In fact, as far as our experiences in Donegal’s restaurant, it is the worst. Everything from the food to the service was terrible. Our pizza tasted like the cheap, pre-frozen...type you would get at Chuck E. Cheese, our order of mussels were covered in Alfredo sauce and half the mussels were still closed, the roast beef looked and tasted like something you would get from a TV dinner. As far as the service, all the waitstaff were kids, and their inexperience showed. The timing of ordering the drinks, food, and getting our ordered was long and overly drawn out. Overall, this place should be a HARD PASS for anyone looking to eat in Donegal Town.More

Popped in without reservation - seemed mega busy, but they said wait a few mins and we'd be seated - we were. Really just want to mention how this place runs like a well oiled machine but still serving A1 food with great team around....Just watching them work - boy do they work - they are attentive and doing any job that comes at them - just fantastic to see a restaurant team all pulling in the same direction. Food was first class in all aspects. So if it seems too busy or manic - be assured - they certainly took us in their stride. They have my patronage next time I'm in town. Highly reccomendedMore
