I ate here recently with my partner. Luckily enough I had booked a table in advance as it was quite busy. I had bean soup for starter and fish tempura (fish and chips) for mains. The service was very good and the food was delicious. There is a lovely ambiance in this restaurant and I can't wait to return.

I had a meal here recently with a small group. It was enjoyable. All dishes were good quality. We opted for the early bird menu which had a good choice. I had zesty fish cakes for starter and fish tempura with a light batter for main course. Both were very tasty. The others had risotto and pate for starter and... More

My partner and I came on two occasions and I have to say that the food is excellent. The selection offered to veggies is great and original, very nice change from most places. That being said the last time we came we had to wait around about twenty minutes to be seated even though we had made a reservation. We... More

We found this restaurant not very cozy but you are there for the food. The diner we had was perfect, very tasteful and for a good price. The wine was also very good. They have only beer from a bottle but that’s okay. We can recommend this restaurant to everybody. Look through the inside of the restaurant and get in... More

The food is very nice. It's ordinary food cooked really well, not fine dining. The starter of risotto was delicious. Mains of fish was nice. I don't really like the presentation of chips in those little buckets like the ones that are used for emptying ashes into. More care into the salad on the plate please. It's like a salad... More

This is a must place to dine. Our dinners were fresh, beautifully presented and so tasty. I had fish covered tempura, my husband had the fried chicken. Oh my- so tasty. The flavours in both were subtle and delicate. When I saw other diners plates their meals looked delicious as well. A nice selection of beverages. Dessert was scrumptious. The... More

This is rated No.1 Restaurant in Westport by TripAdvisor and I'm not suprised. I always use the app to find good Hotels, Restaurants etc.. Was away for the weekend so had to try it. It's not a big place but it is warm & cosy. Food is excellent & staff very friendly. A Hidden Gem..worth a visit. Will definitely be... More

A small restaurant close to the centre of town, starters were bought quickly, we had an excellent bottle of house white wine, the same one that El Bullli had as their house wine. My fish and chips was excellent, my wife monkfish was a little over cooked but never the less tasty.

Really enjoyed the food. The haddock starter was very fresh and tasty and the Venison main course was tender and delicious. Very nice music and friendly staff.
