Booked the restaurant in advance for a Hen party - dealt with Claire throughout who was very easy to deal with and very accommodating of our constantly changing numbers! We had a set menu of three courses which was very good value, the food itself was excellent quality and there was a great range of choices available on the set... More

The food was great in a lovely setting and it is definetly worth a visit.We decided to go for the Midweek Evening Special meal and I had the Thai Spiced Pork which was delicious and my wife had the Pan Seared Fish of the day which she thought was lovely also. Overall it was a great experience.Thanks Claire.

We have dined here on many occasions. The food is always reliable. The staff are friendly. Fresh fish is always on the menu. A midweek value menu is also good value.

We originally had high hopes for this place going by friends recommendations and other reviews, And I couldn't be more disappointed! We rang ahead and booked a table, we were sat beside the kitchen where the doors were hanging open so we could hear and see everything- bad start. Next our waitress Clare took our order who was very much... More

The four of us had just completed a walk over the mountains and were walking into Carlingford when we 'discovered' The Kingfisher. What a wee gem. The atmosphere was just lovely, the food was simply fantastic (Check out the goat cheese starter) and the prices were very reasonable. However, the biggest 'gem' has to be the very helpful and friendly... More

Oh wow....3 of us on a 'girl's' weekend and ate in the Kingfisher on one of the nights. The food was amazing! We've been fortunate to eat out in a number of restaurants over the years and this one did surprise. The presentation and flavours were quit unique. Its difficult to 'tart up' pork but this dish was fantastic. Hard... More

Only found this place while wandering around the town and taking a chance went in. We were fortunate as they just had a cancellation, a nice bit of luck as we would have gone on to find somewhere else and would have missed this great place. Had the Thai spiced pork, the signature dish. It was magnificent and highly recommend... More
