Had the fish and chips there on Friday evening with 3 friends and it was very fresh, tasty and good portion size. The passion fruit mojito was very great also. Waiter was efficient and talkative which was nice.

If you are into fish this your place in Carlingford. Service with a smile. The restaurant is nicely laid out. Fish is expensive at the moment this is reflected in the price, one could not fault the quantity or quality. The fish chowder was superb....More
