Great, local, cozy place to have a delicious dinner. Everything we ate from the fried Brie, the soup, the pizza, to the fish of the day was great! The staff was very friendly and made us feel right at home. Highly recommend!

We loved spending time in Oughterard. One of our favorite dinner spots was this place. We shared chowder and ate a delicious pizza, called The Pompei. Definitely worth checking out!
