Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went for a family lunch here recently with friends. This was our second time in as many months dining here. The food was really delicious we had the braised beef ribs on this occasion and previously we had the Beef roast of the day....On both days food was delicious, generous portions, the vegetables were really fresh too ! We were served by Sarah on both occasions who was excellent and super friendly .More

Just for anniversary dinner with my wife and must say was blown away with what a wonderful evening we had. The food was amazing. I had the beef burger and my wife had tandoori chicken curry. Absolutely fabulous. We also had desserts. They were delicious....Little did I know but my wife rang ahead and arranged an early birthday surprise and all the staff came out and wished me happy birthday. And that brings me on to the final bit. The staff were brilliant from the moment we came to the moment we left and really put the cherry on top of a brilliant night. 10/10. A real amazing place that I couldn't recommend more. Can't wait for our next visit!More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and fancied a night out with dinner. What a great place the Towers is - right on the Harbour with great views. Food was top quality and not too expensive. Wine was great too. But to top it...all the staff were exceptional. Sadly will not be able to visit again (on holiday) but anyone in Westport who wants a special experience you won't find a better place than the Towers.More

We had a great experience at the Towers Bar. We were met by a super friendly manager who I think was called Brandon. He was so friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. As we just wanted a quick bite we just ordered 2 main...courses both of which were very tasty, well presented and served by a lovely waitress. Brandon was very knowledgeable about local beers and was able to give us insight and info on the local area. Nothing was a problem for him and his staff. Would highly recommend The Towers! High quality food,reasonably priced, served by efficient and friendly staff. Thank you Brandon & staff for your hospitality and chats! We'll definitely be back.More

Exceptional service and attention to detail. Tom (owner) and staff were amazing. Went out of their way to make sure we all had a lovely meal. Food was amazing great portion sizes . The play area outside is ideal for families and safe for kids....Menu has a great variety of choices. Staff so lovely. We attend at least once a month and will continue to support The Towers. Keep up the great service and food . 5 stars from my family and friendsMore

Every time we visit Westport, we always make sure to eat at The Towers. The food is brilliant, the staff are so friendly and attentive and the setting is absolutely stunning!! Their menu suits all tastes, and is a favourite in our family from the...kids to the grandparents. Their fish dishes are always delicious, and fab cocktails too. Make sure when you visit to take a walk along the quays where you also take a trip on one of the boats or go for a little swim if you’re brave enoughMore

We had a table in the window with super views out to the westerly setting sun. The staff were attentive with good customer care and food service skills The food was very good, well presented, good sized portions and very delicious. My only concern was...that they can’t accept tips with a credit card. Their accountant says 'it can’t be done' I was told. I was cross that I was unable reward the staff for their good service.More

Had drinks a little earlier in the evening and went back for our dinner reservation. Bartender was friendly and quick to serve us. For our dinner, we were seated quickly and delighted to have a table by the window for sunset; staff were good here...too. We had the chicken wings (shared) followed by fish & chips and the sea trout or bream - everything was very good. Definitely would return and recommend to others.More

Very poor service despite plenty of staff and not being very busy. Waitress came to take our food order before asking if we would like drinks. She did not tell us that the special of pan fried cod with asparagus had no asparagus which had...been replaced by broccili. Nobody came to ask if the meal was ok or if we wanted more drinks. When finally finding a waitress to ask for more drinks they did not arrive. I asked again and was about to walk out when they finally arrived. Asked for the bill and that did not arrive so had to go to the desk to pay. I was asked if everything was ok so explained my dissatisfaction. Looking at recent reviews it appears that service has become an issue recently.More

Very busy spot but they do take phone bookings. They also allocate some tables for walk in so they do book up quickly esp at weekends. Just keep trying.
