Had a lovely meal here with the family over the weekend. Restaurant was busy but with a friendly atmosphere. Mussels cooked to perfection. Staff were accommodating. Not cheap but you get what you pay for.

Stopped at Eithna's on Saturday for an unplanned family dinner. The food was fantastic. The Lobster Thermidor was one of the best I've had. The kids chicken nuggets were home made and tasted great. It was a little expensive, but when you taste the food, it is more than worth it. It was our first visit, and we can't wait... More

First impressions were of a lovely small atmospheric restaurant. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not the cleanest, nothing to dry my hands on, wallpaper chipping off, carpets on the stairs were dirty. However I had the mussels which were lovely, and the smell of food was appealing. Service was not amazing I got my food before being even asked did I... More

We were staying in Mullaghmore for a weekend break for the first time and we visited this restaurant on the Saturday evening. Overlooking the harbour the theme certainly was the sea and fish but they do have an extensive menu with a great variety to choose from. Cosy and intimate seafood restaurant would be the best way to describe this... More

Marvellous seafood in a cozy atmosphere. Not cheap but worth every penny. We took my wife's parents and her sister and her husband for a very special dinner. Once the mother-in-law stopped sucking her teeth t the price of a main course even she enjoyed herself! Particularly recommend the shellfish platter which was exceptional.

We passed the restaurant earlier and it did not look inviting at all. Few days later we came back after we read some reviews and I am glad we did. When we stepped in the place looked really nice and harmonic, loved it. And food itself was beautiful, we both had fish for main course and I think mine was... More

Having walked the Pier and built up quite the appetite exploring the Sligo and Leitrim countryside, myself and my 6 & 7 year old travelling companions were hungry. It was early evening and very quiet so I was surprised when they squashed us round a small table. The menu is predominantly fish which you expect so definitely not suitable if... More
