While we were walking around in Wesport on a recent visit (8 adult family members) we came across this gorgeous little restaurant. The menus looked amazing and right up our alley so we decided to book it for our last night in Westport and to celebrate two birthdays amoungst the group. We googled the menus and were already salivating before... More

This restaurant has a small frontage which can easily be missed. The service was great the night we visited even though it was very busy and some tables had a quick turn around. The Irish food was attractively served and very tasty.

We ate here and it was faultless, great food and great service. This restaurant was recommended by the people where we stayed ( The Boulevard Guesthouse) and they were right.

As a native of Westport this is my restaurant of choice for a good meal out especially as I have 2 veterinarians in the family and they always have a great selection of suitable dishes to choose from. The staff are always very pleasant and helpful. And their house wine is really good (too good sometimes!!) I would strongly recommend... More

Had an impromptu evening meal here mid week and my overall impression is that the restaurant itself is underwhelming for the pricetag. No idea how it compares to other restaurants in the town. The service was excellent, staff efficient and very professional. The food was good quality and tasty, well prepared and a lot of attention to detail had gone... More

This is by far the best restaurant I've been to in Ireland...and I'm on my ninth trip. We had the fish cakes and goats' cheese to start. My husband had the organic salmon gnocchi (which I stole even though I'm not a huge fan of salmon) and I had the cod special. Food was amazing and service was exceptional too.... More

Four of us decided to eat there after reading the reviews and we were slightly disappointed. Two had the fish and chips which was very good and the other two had gnocchi with salmon. Whilst it tasted good, there was an awful lot of gnocchi and very little salmon. We had hoped it would be a fillet on top but... More

We were seated and served promptly when we arrived. The waitresses asked several times during our meal if everything was to our liking. Each course of food was tastefully presented.The Early bird 3-course meal for 30 euro was excellent value. The portion sizes were good and our main was piping hot.The desserts of baked cheesecake and fruit crumble were scrumptious.A... More
