The food was just ok..there was no space at the table..there are too many tables squeezed in..would never go back again here ..the prices did not reflect the quality or quantity of food on offer..very overrated restaurant..much more a glorified cafe...

That said, we ALWAYS aim to to give our customers a dining experience that they will enjoy. On this occasion,... More

Good quality restaurant at the higher end of the price scale . The wine is pricy in comparison to other outlets , it would be nice to be able to bring your own wine of choice

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for you kind feedback. Unfortunately, as food and wine is our business, we are not in a position to offer BYO wine &, as policy, do not feel comfortable charging corkage. Additionally. our wine menu is based on a selection of premium wines which are not readily available in off-licences or supermarkets. This is an attempt... More

We had a big group - 10 people - here last Friday night. The quality of food and level of service are hard to beat. We have all eaten here several times over the years and have never been disappointed. Variety of food is excellent, even for a vegetarian. Highly recommended.

We stopped for lunch by chance and I had the best fish pie ever ! Simply delicious. The seasonal vegetables were crisp and crunchy and not soggy as happens far too often. We had a great conversation with the owner about food - who promptly gave as a salmon dish smoked in turf to try on the house. It too... More

I think I first need to say that I have been dining in Oysters Restaurant pretty much since it opened near on 8 years ago and I can safely and categorically say that not once have I ever been disappointed. That in itself speaks volumes for how Kevin (Owner/Manager) has maintained not just his exceptional standards of cooking/dishes/choice but also... More

I heard good things about Oysters some 4 years ago and decided to try it out on one of our Xmas visits to Ireland. We were greeted and seated by Kevin who politely took our coats, hats and scarves away to a cloak room, we assume, but they did turn up after our meal. A simple thing like insisting they... More
