The lamb chops were beautiful. Great flavours in the food and staff were very pleasant. Reasonably priced for what you get. Ambiance wasn't outstanding.

After arriving late last Friday we decided to eat in the nearest place which happened to be maddens. We enjoyed the surroundings, the bar is very well decorated and had a very relaxed atmosphere. The staff were extremely polite, friendly and welcoming making us feel very comfortable. The food was good, nothing over the top and could probably do with... More

Nothing above and beyond, food was very nice but nothing exceptional, ambience was lacking and place was very sterile. Would recommend if you are in a hurry to eat otherwise take your time and find a place with a bit more atmosphere.

Best fish and chips ever, and I love in Vancouver, BC so we have a lot of seafood! The seafood chowder was also amazing, my husband and I both had it three times!

We found the food in the bar very nice, we had the battered fish and chips and was lovely. Very friendly staff in the bar and a nice relaxed atmosphere.

Our server, Alex, has the most beautiful smile in all of Westport. We were seated straight away at the table of our choice. We ordered soup and split a dinner which she was happy to accommodate. We had fish that was fresh and well prepared. The presentation was nice. We concluded with Irish coffee that I wish I had photographed... More

We dropped in here for our first dinner in Westport because it was off the main drag where the Cannonball Run was occurring and was fairly empty. Both my husband and I got fish and chips. Not terrible but not great either. My husband felt the fish was dry. The service was also average. I expected better for the price... More
