Shout-out to Karina who served us there, thank you for the great and friendly service! The food was delicious, we recommend the seafood chowder and the crispy goat cheese salad, which were especially good. Short note: the restaurant is now called "The Thatch".

Stopped on route back to Ardara. So glad we did. The confit duck starter was amazing. The fish and chips were enormous and perfectly cooked. Service was so friendly and the atmosphere was very welcoming. Will definitely be returning.
