The portions were small and the taste was very average for all choices. The Caesar was the... More

Fabulous! The one restaurant in which I have never had a bad meal! I eat here regularly & it is consistently good! Service is pleasant, fast & excellent. The caramelised fillet steak is to die for, always properly cooked. I have it with mushrooms, the stir fry veg & creamed potatoes, to die for but one never feels unpleasantly full!... More

The is a small restaurant on Buncrana's main street and worth a visit. They accommodated four us on a busy Saturday evening at very short notice. We were warned that they would need the table back in one hour which was fine. The chicken bang bang was great and the service was excellent. They have a few tables by the... More

We stopped in for dinner while visiting Buncrana, after our BnB host recommended it. We were seated promptly and had a delightful dinner of the hake with chickpea stew. The decor and ambiance was modern, not noisy so you could enjoy a quiet conversation The servers and manager were very pleasant and it made for a relaxing and enjoyable dinner.

I had the local sea bass over noodles and my partner had hake baked in a chick pea chorizo stew. Both excellent. Service outstanding and prices reasonable.

A Wurlitzer style juke box plays background music. Staff are pleasant and friendly. The food is always good and the owner Stephen usually checks with his customers that they have got... More

I moved back home recently and enjoy eating out so have visited all the restaurants in the area and still rate the Ubiq #1. The staff cannot... More
