Very bad service. The waiter left our food at the edge of the table instead of putting it in front of us, we sat with our dirty plates for about 20 minutes and I eventually had to go over to all the servers who were...chatting to each other to ask them for our dessert. I tried to pay multiple times before a woman who we think was a manager snapped at me to go up to the till to pay as if I’m a mind reader and knew that. Also it was freezing in the restaurant and the food wasn’t worth the price. Toilets didn’t flush and you could smell them from the tables.More

Took my son and family here for graduation dinner, the food was absolutely delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I did get a beer spilled over me, which was a total accident but the staff were so apologetic and helpful. The manager...came over later and apologised again and gave us a round of drink and also gave us a discount on bill. Sometimes these things happen and what matters is how staff deal with it. I was very impressed with the staff and manager.More

Not often do you leave a good review but I couldn't fault the facilities whatsoever. So cheap, 3€ per child for a go in their play area in which there is so much to do for kids. Very well cleaned and maintained and the staff...were very helpful and friendly. Never got food as we had to head home but the play area was super.More

Aye here last night. Food and service impeccable as always. There’s a few more expensive alternatives in the vicinity who can learn a lot from the team and offering at backstage.

Reviewed 27 July 2021

Visited Letterkenny for a short family break and this place was recommended by a woman at the hotel. What a mistake it was. Just go to McDonalds across the way and have a better meal. The Titanic platter was nothing short of grim. The menu...boasts fish goujons, prawn twists, salt nd pepper squid and crispy calamari served with salad and dips. In reality it is a greasy slab of fish and a bowl of what seems to be Iceland’s €1 party range. Beige and basic. The salad is a few leaves and the ‘dips’ were a plastic pot of mayo. Kids meal sounds great with a lot of options but again fails to deliver. My son didn’t even eat 2 of the 3 things he got and on trying them I agreed. A waste of €25 for 1 adult 1 child. I don’t often write these reviews but this was so poor I had to.More
