Wholesome lunch of generous proportion. Nothing too much trouble. Pricing reasonable. Never had a bad meal at Katch 27.

A little impromptu date night led to a quick call to Katch 27 who were more than happy to squeeze us in very last minute. We have eaten breakfast and lunch on occasions but this was a first for dinner and we were not disappointed....More

Hidden gem on the peninsula! Been here several times now and food does not disappoint. Seafood excellent and service good despite being so busy in the evenings. Salt and chili squid and prawns superb. Will be back!

Hi, we do have vegetarian options Brie, vege curry, stroganoff or baguettes e.g. As everything is cooked fresh any special requests we are happy to deliver providing we have the ingredients. Hope to see you soon.

“Katch27 - Overrated Restaurant?” 3 of 5 starsPending review With regard to our comments on lunch at Katch27 in January 2016. We can understand the owner being unhappy with our review and his comments defending the restaurant. We aim to be truthful and honest about our experience and are only expressing our opinion. As we said in the review, the food was good but nothing special, and the staff were friendly. We would not go out of our way to visit Katch27 in Kircubbin again as we know we can get equally good, or better, food in a cosier atmosphere in other restaurants. Our disappointment stems from our expectations being too high after reading some of the good reviews.
