What a fabulous restaurant with amazing ambience and food which is to die for! What ever you order off the menu you will not be disappointed! I have eaten here three times and the food has been lovely. The fish is so fresh and you get generous portion sizes. The best lobster yet! Staff are very friendly and efficient too.... More

We were told by various family members that the food in Eithna's was amazing and they weren't wrong, it was out of this world & I don't think that I have ever had a better seafood platter, you could taste the freshness of all the seafood and we got loads on our platter, we were really sorry that we had...

Food really really tasty and fresh, the squid was possibly the best squid dish I ever had! And my mam had the lemon sponge raspberry cake for dessert and it was unbeleibably nice 😍 The two girls working there were very friendly and welcoming ☺

Great little cafe serving freshly prepared wonderfully tasty food. As a person with allergies, they were able to prepare something to suit my needs with no extra trouble. The decor is bright and breezy and it was obvious this place is popular as we were very lucky to get a table. My husband had the seafood chowder and I had... More

We stopped here for lunch & views after a weeknd in bundoran .The setting, the atmosphere & finally the food. It's just located beside the pier on MM. it's a lovely little nautical/baking themed eatery with a little sea view. We ate inside after a very short wait for a table. It's small but cosy. The food was mouth watering... More

Beautiful chowder and the fresher wheaten muffin to go with it. Pure heaven in a bowl. Sitting in the sun overlooking the harbour was just a bonus in early October.

We had read about this spot and were in the area at lunch time so decided to try it. It was a spectacular day but not during the busy season so it was not at all crowded. My wife's soup was some of the best she has had in multiple lengthy trips to Ireland. The broth in my chowder was... More

Excellent food wonderfully served by a very personable staff guided by Eithne. Quality of food especially fish outstanding and not overpriced. So near to our hotel was another bonus. Was last here at the Millenium. And the standard is as high as ever

Visited on a Friday night, was nicely busy but not too packed so it was a good atmosphere. The two of us had lobster thermidore, fantastically cooked and tasted amazing! I had the pear and chocolate cake for dessert, delicious! Very good value as well. I will definitely return next time I'm in Sligo :)
