Visited this restaurant on Sunday 12 June for lunch with my wife and our small dog Sasha. For starters we had the brie and for mains the fish pie and leg of lamb and to finish we had the orange and white chocolate cheesecake. The...food was exceptional and the staff were very friendly and helpful. They have an outside area where we could sit with our dog. I would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant. I will definitely be back the next time I am visiting Milltown Malbay.More

We recently toured Ireland with a group of 10. Our driver called ahead to make sure they were open and to give a heads up that a party of 10 would be arriving shortly. When we got there, we were greeted by a very friendly...woman (not sure if she was an owner, but wished I had asked) and our table was all set up for our large group. It was the lunch hour, so there were other tables occupied as well, and our hostess and server was quite busy. That didn't stop her from being extremely attentive and friendly. Our food was fresh and delicious. I would highly recommend this establishment if you are in the area.More

A great eating experience that started with a warm Irish welcome to the restaurant. Sumptuous fish chowder and deep fried brie to start followed by beef bourguignon that was rich , tasty and accompanied with hot fresh vegetables. Recommend this warm and welcoming restaurant

What a wonderful find on a recent short break to Co. Clare. From our first encounter to making the booking to our arrival we experienced a warm welcome and wonderful food. Enjoyed our dinner of duck and fish dishes with vegetables that were just perfectly...cooked. Very generous servings too. This is a cosy and relaxing place and most definately will be making a return visit here and I can highly recommend this wonderful place to others. Very good value too. So glad we found it and thanks to all the team there.More

Amazing ladies running this place, we came in frozen after a swim and were offered blankets and hot water bottles!! This is before we even got to the food which was outstanding, from the chowder to the toasties and not to mention the hot toddies....Would recommend to anyone especially any swimmers who are taking a dip close by!More
