Service was exceptional. Every item was explained to me with a view to shellfish allergy. Food was amazing. Sat next to a window table so watching wildlife and the ocean was fabulous. Lovely walk along the coastline after Lunch.

We couldn't resist the chocolate apocalypse for dessert, all in all a fantastic evening of food!! Highly recommended

Where do I start!? I've had far worse meals in terms of quality of the food but in terms of value and service this was really poor. From the outset the head waitress/manageress(possibly) stood coldly over us waiting for our orders when clearly we weren't ready having just settled at our table.

One of the best seafood restaurants we know. No visit to Barna is complete without a visit to O'Grady's. Wonderful!
