We were staying in the Slieve Donard hotel and had pre booked a table in the Percy French.
Very friendly manager and waiting staff.
We ordered deep fried brie which came strangely enough on a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce and some large orange slices.
The large orange slices showed up again on the desert, must have had a job lot.
Food was nice, steak cooked to our liking and wine was excellent.
Overall a nice experience.

Mid week lunch not too many people around but yet the service was less than attentive to say the least and had a rather long wait. Drinks and meal had to paid separately probably because you may get fed up waiting and walk out. Eventually we got a table in a rather dull restaurant but with a nice view. The food did arrive and really it was not worth waiting for. I take it is still part of the Hastings Hotels but there was no Hast. I will be avoiding it.

As a fussy London type, I didn't expect to be blown away by the Percy French but I absolutely was. Recent revamp has given the place a real lift but what really delighted was the service & the food. Ingredients were fresh, local, of the best quality & artfully put together. Smoked haddock main was divine with all flavours perfectly pitched & balanced. Whiskey cheesecake was better than my own mother's! Staff were friendly, knew the menu & genuinely seemed to be enjoying their jobs.
Intend to return often & work my way through the menu & can't wait to introduce friends to the wonderful view of the sea. Feels like what Newcastle has been missing for a long time.
