We had dinner here recently. I was very excited to have some fresh seafood while overlooking the sea. I was so disappointed....I had the fish and chips, the batter on the fish was soggy and tasteless and the chips were not homemade, obviously from a bag. Not acceptable for the price you pay. My companions had the Venue burger, same... More

Food was great, reasonably priced with a great choice of food. Food was piping hot, wine menu was good with lots of choice. Staff were friendly and efficient. Booking in advance is recommended in particular if you want to dine there on a Friday night as it gets exceptionally busy. Excellent restaurant, we have already booked our return trip.

Had a meal there recently. We found it a bit impersonal and while the food was acceptable the atmosphere was "get them in and out". It is clearly popular judging from the number of clients.

Had dinner in here with my husband while staying in Sligo fir a long weekend. The food was good and the menu had a good range of different food. Beautiful evening watching the sunset on the horizon as we ate dinner. Amazing staff quick and friendly. I would recommend it if u in the area.

Visited here last September and left a glowing well deserved review. Not so this time. After a two hour journey we were really looking forward to lunch. I ordered the open prawn sandwich and hubby the "smoked" salmon one. His consisted of 3 pieces of wheaten bread with 3 PIECES of absolutely tasteless salmon. No dressing of any sort and... More

Can't fault the food, really delicious. We went on Friday, Steak Night and their offers are very good value. Nice, helpful, efficient staff. We had a window table and wow what a view while watching the sun setting. I felt it was good value for money.

Came here with a friend. Food was excellent. Perfectly cooked, delivered by friendly helpful staff. The place was very busy and had a nice buzz to it. We had a drink in the bar after eating which had live music. 3 men and their guitars.. Lovely.
