I have never before called a restaurant terrible. However this was terrible. I had hot smoked salmon which was hard and had obviously just been taken out of the Fridge. It was hideous. I had not looked at the reviews prior to being in the restaurant but I have now and am not the only person so disgusted. They need... More

Food was excellent and some things were very unusual potted meat dish for starter was delicious and the fish dishes were very fresh and well presented. Service was great especially for being busy.

I've not been to the West Port in years (but had fond memories) and found myself there today with my two children. There was no atmosphere - the staff look miserable - but it was the food that was a massive let down. The starter arrived and was a far cry from how it was described on the menu and... More

Had an excellent meal in the West Port Bar and Kitchen. Great variety of food, and also a good choice of different areas for eating in. Steak was excellent, Fish also. Very reasonable prices. Would highly recommend this place to all.

What's happened to the Westport Bar? Disappointed is not the word. Very unpleasant man behind the bar. I felt so sorry for the girls working with him who were so obviously embarrassed by the way he spoke to us. We have been regular customers here for years and will certainly not go back or recommend the place to anyone. Shame... More

Really nice decor and setting with lots more space inside than you realise. Very modern feel and seemed really clean and well presented. Small issue with some ants in very back room but did not see any in other parts. Prices were reasonable at 3.50 a pint of tenants. Kids welcome with tables at the back with small tv's on... More

Second visit to the West Port Bar and Kitchen and as our first visit last summer was amazing we thought we'd go back. Lovely venue, with a great area outside when the weather is nice, sadly not this time of year. Interior is welcoming and staff are friendly. Menu slightly sparse but we found something to choose from. Husband had... More

Nice to see a healthy choices on the menu, enjoyed it. One down side is the strange smell that you notice on entry to the restaurant, may be only on the night we were there??
