Excellent in all departments! Four adults and two children and every dish spot on. Starters, mains and desserts were had by all! Have to mention the oysters which were as good as any I've tasted,outstanding! Fish pie was delicious and would be rude not to...point out the desserts, mmmmmmmm! Staff all very friendly and professional. Definitely the best Sunday lunch and would definitely recommend.More

A good place to visit before a hike up Croagh Patrick. Good, hearty seafood. The seafood pie was excellent. Service is good but the restaurant was a bit cold as they seemed to leave the door open.

I ate here a few times during our stay in Westport. Typical Irish food. Sometimes the restaurants in Westport can be difficult to get into. This restaurant is just a bit outside of Westport and was a great spot when it was too crowded in...town. Great place to stop after hiking Croagh Patrick!More

Great choice of menu,but would definitely recommend the fish and chips!!!! Wow!! Lovely staff and spotlessly clean. Looking forward...to our next visit!!!More

Been here before and the experience was good. But this time, maybe it was Covid or something else that just got in the way of a good time. While the service and courtesy of the waitresses were pretty much on the mark, the quality of...the food has clearly gone down. The overpriced menu though was the big let-down...for example, the starter of calamari @ about €8 contained only 4 small rings...similar story with the chicken wings with only 6 small pieces on offer. Rest of meal continued the over-priced theme. In short, it feels like this year's 'staycationers' might be paying over the odds for below average fare.More
