Fresh superb food and cooked to perfection. In a large city they would be fighting to book a table. Only downside is small restaurant so somewhat high levels of noise. So no romantic meals for 2. Well worth it however for the food.

Hi, we do have vegetarian options Brie, vege curry, stroganoff or baguettes e.g. As everything is cooked fresh any special requests we are happy to deliver providing we have the ingredients. Hope to see you soon.

“Katch27 - Overrated Restaurant?” 3 of 5 starsPending review With regard to our comments on lunch at Katch27 in January 2016. We can understand the owner being unhappy with our review and his comments defending the restaurant. We aim to be truthful and honest about our experience and are only expressing our opinion. As we said in the review, the food was good but nothing special, and the staff were friendly. We would not go out of our way to visit Katch27 in Kircubbin again as we know we can get equally good, or better, food in a cosier atmosphere in other restaurants. Our disappointment stems from our expectations being too high after reading some of the good reviews.
