Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Delicious food Lovely seating and staff Ordered the crab avocado sandwich with soup and the prawn tocos we thought both were delicious and the coffee was great too. You can also order bottled craft beer if you like. Thanks for a lovey lunch

So I am now a regular in Ahoy simply because the food and service is so good. I was there on Monday for lunch and had the crabmeat burger with chips. Delicious and flavoursome but not overpowering. Excellent, prompt and friendly service and you can...park outside!! And get a view!!!More

We visited this cafe for lunch. The food was excellent and would highly recommend the superfood salad with chicken, it was delicious. The ham and cheese toastie was super also. Friendly staff. Well worth a visit if in Killybegs.

Firstly I have to say that I have had some great experiences here previously when visiting with family some of whom are vegetarian. I visited again quiete recently and was disappointed. It's possible I ordered the wrong thing (the BALT) which is a BLT with...Avacado but I asked for it without Avacado. I was served this with raw bacon, just looked like it was shown the grill. I have never b4 sent food back to the kitchen before, but I'm sorry to say I did just that. They brought it back having cooked it for a further 30 seconds so still barely edible. I'm hoping I visited on a very busy day and that they were short staffed. I will give this cafe another chance when next in the area, because of previous experience. Would be a pity to see it not do well.More

We had visited Ahoy some years ago and thought it very good with attentive staff and very good food. On this visit for lunch we found that neither the service nor the food was as good. The BALT (bacon, avocado, lettuce and bacon) sandwiches were...a particular disappointment with undercooked bacon, very mushy avocado and overly hard bread. My own Italian chicken sandwich was mediocre at best. We will not be back.More

Delicious food, relaxed atmosphere and great service. Food was hopping fresh and arrived quickly, even though the place was very busy. Highly recommended.

Popped in here for a late lunch. 8 of us, 5A and 3C. It was raining so the outside tables were out of action and inside was busy so we had to wait 25 min for a table. It was worth the wait. We had...a wide variety of fish / chicken dishes between us all. All was very good. Chips/fries are a weird shape but better than skinny fries.More

3 of us had lunch on a misty summer's day in Ahoy. Had a seat in the new extension of the café with a grandstand view of the port. Two of us relished the calamari salad and the third enjoyed the superfood salad with chicken....All were promptly beautifully presented as well as being composed of the freshest ingredients. Staff were really friendly, efficient and grateful for our custom in the kind of way that indicates that they take great pride in what they do. We will be back!More

Nice food and friendly staff who are obviously rushed off their feet. Made us feel welcome and we sat outside to have a lovely lunch. Food was delicious and we would definitely go back.

12.30 for lunch. Kitchen closes after breakfast but you can still get coffees and treats. Lovely clean seating outside to enjoy the sunshine covered area if you don't want sunburn. 😁 Friendly staff and a tasty menu.

Great location in Killybegs. Excellent food and service. Quality ingredients beautifully cooked and presented. Best gluten- free bread ever- from Gallaghers in Ardara. We stopped off for lunch and returned a few days later for lunch. A gem.

Ive had lunch here with family and friends so many times but was dissapointed with my experience last saturday. I had ordered the soup of the day...which was vegetable...when it came there was a few vegetables floating in what could only be described as tasteless...water. I called the waitress to explain and reordered something else from the menu...she was not happy with me sending it back. No apology or explaination given Its a pity they dont taste the food before serving it. Staff on the whole need to up their game...i find them less than enthusiasticMore
