Popped by this place, right on the pier, w no knowledge of its reputation. I ordered the half dozen oysters and calamari. The calamari presentation is bland, but they are so incredibly fresh and cooked to perfection. The dip could be better, in both creativity...More

My family recently enjoyed a great meal at Deep. Excellent seafood, good service, and a great location. The linguini with lobster was terrific.

We had been advised to check out the Bloody Stream but fell on this place as we walked up the pier and noticed the seafood platter options. So we set off on a 6 mile trek along the coast and came back at about 1.30....More

Good seafood, right on the pier. We had the "mixed seafood for 2", a seafood stew, and grilled prawns - everything was very good. The service was very accommodating - we asked for gluten free, so they served the grilled prawns with mashed potatoes instead...More

I chose the chef's special, sort of bouillabaisse, and liked that a lot even if it was really messy dish to eat it. Very recommendable.

They've got a couple of rave reviews from newspapers displayed in their restaurant, but unfortunately I didn't note which papers they were. Their seafood was incredibly fresh, perhaps bought right off of the docks. We had incredible fried oysters and a hearty seafood chowder as appetizers, then an earlybird seafood special for two for dinner which included fishcakes, crawfish, mussels, Dublin Bay Prawns, squid, smoked salmon, and a small salad. Beautifully plated, amazingly delicious. I hope you're able to get more info because this place is not to be missed!
