Wow! Where will I start? From the moment we walked in the door, we were welcomed and well looked after. I haven't been to a restaurant in so long where I have wanted to eat everything off the menu! As I ate my Caesar salad, chicken with mash and the ravishing raspberry roulade, I was getting food envy from all... More

We visited The Bay Tree last Saturday night with a group of friends, everything about the evening was fantastic, the service, the wine, the ambience, but most importantly the food was incredible, definitely the best restaurant in Carlingford, would highly recommend it.

We had a fantastic evening in the Baytree Restaurant and it was very reasonably priced too - we had our four year old son with us. They catered very well for him! Conor, the chef brought out our meals and had time to chat to our little fella which was a lovely touch! We (the adults) had chowder to start,... More

3 of us have a 'girl's weekend' away once a year. We stayed in Belvedere House and Baytree Restaurant in Carlingford and had a terrific weekend. Conor was a friendly and professional host and the service he and his team gave us was excellent. Comfortable rooms with fab beds to snuggle into! All the food was home made and the... More

They couldn't have been more accommodating even though we were in and out. The atmosphere, location and decor are lovely and they accommodated all our requests of which there were many including a coeliac. I... More

I have been in the Baytree a few times in the past year and every time the food and atmosphere was great. The seafood tasting plate is really beautiful with the freshest of fish used. The menu offers plenty of variety and all the food tastes great. Would highly recommend for food and service.

A group of 8 of us were lucky to get a booking here at quite short notice due to a cancellation. My family have used the Bay Tree on several occasions for large family dinners and it has never disappointed. Last night was no exception. The setting and decor is perfect, great for intimate and larger groups alike. We had... More
