We visited on a Wednesday evening so it was quiet. We ate in the bar. We had fish and steak - we were both extremely happy with our meals, the food was excellent. The service also very good - staff were welcoming and friendly.

This Bar was very busy when we arrived as the festival was on in Westport that weekend and even though it was busy the food was beautiful and very tasty and my kids loved the food well worth a visit.
