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.

However As paying customers(one bill-not split) when asked for the regular a la cart menu for some...ladies in the group who would of preferred one course, was told by manager that they could not provide this as this was a group booking and the place was so busy that we HAD to go of the set menu and people could pick one course of set menu if they wished and pay the set menu price ( minimum 2 course was €24 a head) We were left confused does the food not All come out of the same kitchen and cooked to each order :/?More

A fantastic location with incredible views, unbeatable in the current beautiful weather. Although very busy we got a table after a half hour wait. Not too bad with a cold drink in your hand. Our food order somehow got lost and after a rather very...long wait they got it sorted and refunded our food. Not necessary at all but such a nice gesture. The seafood was delicious and it was the most perfect evening.More

Lovely evening spent with family in the outer seating area looking out at Clare Island. Top class food - wings, calamari and scampi was gorgeous. Children’s play area is great to have too. Manager Tommy was very friendly and welcoming.

When staying in Westport we called in here for a few drinks as it looked lovely. Cocktails were v good but it was full of young staff who lacked maturity and there didn't seem to be anyone working as a manager or supervisor. Lots of...tables were left waiting to pay, order food and some even didn't get everything they ordered and had to ask for it a 2nd time. When the young employees finished their shifts they pulled up a seat at the bar and started drinking. Not a good look at all! We avoided the place on our 2nd night in westport and went up the road to The Helm, much better!More

3 of us called in here without a booking one evening and we were quickly shown to a table. Staff very attentive & food was excellent. As a vegan all I can say is that while on holidays I don’t want to eat burgers every...night! So it was lovely to have a red Thai curry and be able to have tofu with it. It was very tasty with a large portion of tofu. The others had fish cakes & the hake which was the special. 3 very satisfied customers- Thank youMore

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.
