I was travelling around the wild Atlantic way with my wife and two sons. We decided to go into this restaurant for dinner on our second day. The food was lovely and service was fine apart from a lady with short blonde hair who we...took to be the manager. She was very abrupt and rude to her staff in front of the customers, which Ilwe thought was completely unprofessional. There was a young waitress who seemed to be very upset after speaking with her. She hasn’t even made a mistake in our eyes, she had simply forgot the side orders but once it was mentioned they were brought out straight away. Once we had finished the meal, this blonde woman came over and snatched the plates from out beneath us. My youngest son (aged 7) was still eating and she lifted the food from under him. We didn’t even get offered a dessert menu! Overall, the manager made us feel like a burden to deal with not like customers. It’s a pity because everyone else was very accommodating and the food was lovely. Don’t think we would ever return after this experience if we ever decide to travel to Donegal again.More

Good choice of food, but don’t have a regular portion unless you’re very hungry, small is plenty. Very civilised in here, no noisy groups.

Good selection of local fish dishes but very large portions. I had the local cod with beurre blanc. My husband had slow cooked beef.

We stayed at the Tara Hotel but ventured out to find a place to dine, only to find that the fishermen and locals were making their way here. It is a bar and restaurant combination. The restaurant has a spectacular view of the harbor and...you couldn’t ask for a better place to sit and eat indoors. From the images you can see that the Turntable restaurant is separate from the hotel and colored red for distinction. The staff was wonderful. You cannot beat this place for the view, service, food, or price. We enjoyed a calamari appetizer locally caught. Then we had Killybegs Cod, fried and grilled. Both were spectacular and arrived hot. They had great prices. We had two meals, drinks, and an appetizer for less than 75 euros. Definitely worth the stop. Great Food, service, view, reasonably priced, friendly service and locals. We had a great evening.More

While staying in Killybegs we dined each night in the Turntable. Excellent selection of freshly cooked food. We found it difficult to decide, but we were never disappointed. Staff very pleasant and helpful. No problem if you want to slightly change an item from the...menu. I had a small battered fish one evening which was just the right size, a male could probably manage a regular size.More

The place was packed and its a lovely room, unfortunately the food was very disappointing the aim was high but they just didn't reach it. There was more batter than prawns in my prawn tempura and my the mash was almost solid. We couldn't order...wine by the glass only small bottles which was very strange. Evening was saved by a very large delicious chocolate desert which Im glad we decides to shareMore

The setting is the main bar of the hotel, so bar food was expected. But the quality of the food, especially sea food, was very good. A bit noisy and loads of TVs on everywhere you turn, but it's a bar so you sort of...expect all that.More
