We dined here on 2 nights during our stay on inis mór and both nights were fab. We had a bit of a wait outside which we didn’t mind as they are keeping all covid regulations in place. The staff were so lovely and welcoming when we got a table. The food was absolutely fabulous and the pints of Guinness were 10/10. Highly recommend for some lovely food and great atmosphere!!

Popped in for lunch after our bike ride around the island. There was 9 of us in total, 3 kids & 6 adults. We had to wait a few mins for a table but that was fine as we were a large group. The lady who seated us gave us such a warm welcome she was just lovely. I had the goats cheese & it was divine. Everyone loved their lunch. The guiness looked good but we didn't have time for a pint. All covid regulations were very up to a very high standard. Just a great spot

Stopped here for Lunch after a bike ride. Restaurant had a que due to being popular, but we got seated quickly. Restaurant meets all the COVID guidelines but still keeps its charm.

I had the Seafood chowder which was excellent, and my partner had the fish of the day which was very succulent and tasty.

Would highly recommend

Bhíomar ann cúpla uar ó shin, sa bhliain 2013 ar dtús ceapim agus arís i 2018.
Chumar ag rothaíoicht inniú , ar an slí abhaile bhí Watty's mar ceann scríbe againn.
Bhí an anraith x 4 go breá. Fuaramar dha burgar mairteola agus an meád ceanna curaí sicín. Bhí siad ana bhlasta.

Mholfainn an teach seo go mór - is léir go bhfúil ceighdeán rí ard anseo i measc na foireann cairdiúil, gairmiúil seo.
