Beautiful location and warm and friendly staff. Menu was a little limited but there was enough of a selection to choose from. The food was of a very high standard and was also very reasonably priced. The fish pie was outstanding. The wine list though...limited was also good value for money. The staff could have checked on the meal during the evening. Overall a very enjoyable evening with great food and really good value for money. Staff could be a little more attentive.More

Booked a table here at the Tower's a short time in advance...we were seated in a great spot with a fabulous view of the setting sun across the bay. Our family (2x adults and 4x children) enjoyed a variety of tasty dishes...the Seafood Chowder is...always a 'dinner winner' and a couple of us enjoyed this as a starter, before the adults enjoyed salmon & a special curry biryani..delicious! The kids had the usual chicken goujons and chips, but freshly cooked and not out of a packet. All the Covid health procedures were well followed, and the staff team were very friendly and accommodating. Overall we had a lovely meal at the Tower's!More

Booked a table for 6 during our stay in Westport. Good menu, nice interior, friendly staff and good food, so everyone was happy. Good COVID compliance also. One small fault would be the portion sizes, strange to say but they were huge and a lot...of food was leftover.More

We ate here a few times during our stay. As a family of five, we really enjoyed the outdoor beer garden where we could keep an eye on our kids playing. This is a great spot for families as they have a kids play area...with swing set and a few other things. We also really liked the interior. The restaurant has a seafood theme and a beautiful picture of lobster lobster on the wall. Made me hungry for some lobster Only to find out they were not on the menu. Got to add that lobster!More

Ate here a few times lately and were bowled over by the delicious food, especially the crab claws. Friendly efficient service and lovely location down on the pier in Westport.

Found this restaurant before going on staycation to Westport, and a friend advised us to book in advance. Booking in advance is a must as long as there are still people going on staycation and the Covid situation continues, as they were very busy and...appeared full up. They weren't great at answering the phone, but they did respond to email, for making a booking. In terms of the restaurant itself, a very nice setup, with a cool outside area. The outdoor area and certain tables inside have great views of Clew Bay and the sunset in the evening. The staff were very accommodating and attentive. The most important part, the food, is very good, and comes in very large portions The 6 of us had a variety of mains and no one left disappointed.More
