On a blustery autumn day, Eithnas was a cosy escape from the wind and rain. There were lots of gluten free options for me, and my husband said his meal was top-notch. The fish was freshly caught. The service was friendly.

Considering the prices the service is very poor: no tablecloths, no wine list (really surprising!), staff not adequate and part of the food was poor quality (likely frozen). We paid a lot and were not happy: I'm usually happy to pay high money if what...More

We had a fantastic lunch at Eithnas. Staff were attentive and the food was delicious. The crab was probably the best I have ever had. Worth a visit.
