We were staying in Mullaghmore for a weekend break for the first time and we visited this restaurant on the Saturday evening. Overlooking the harbour the theme certainly was the sea and fish but they do have an extensive menu with a great variety to choose from. Cosy and intimate seafood restaurant would be the best way to describe this place. We were shown to a table on arrival and given menus, then a waiter brought out some home baked bread with a dip for us to enjoy while waiting. Not great seafood lovers we ordered a 12oz Steak for myself and my wife had chicken pasta. As it was dreadful weather outside the waiter arrived with a small cup of butternut squash soup each to keep us busy until our mains arrived, these were excellent wee added touches to our dining experience. Our main courses were excellent, cooked to perfection, with all the added trimings you could ask for. We were worried that we would not have room for desserts as we had spotted items on the menu that we fancied. However, we struggled on, took our time to let everything settle and so to desserts. My wife had jam sponge with custard and cream, I had apple tart with cinnamon and custard and they were to die for, lovely tastes and well presented. I might add here that 'custard' was not a menu option as they were served with cream however we asked for custard and we got it, no trouble at all to them.
The service from all the staff was friendly and efficient.
We definitely will be back here when we are next in the area and would recommend Eithna's by the Sea to anyone.
