New summer menu, my husband was disappointed to see his favourite sea food platter was not on the menu, but the lovely waitress asked the chef and he said no problem. My halibut was delicious. A pleasure as usual. Helen & John.

I visited this evening with my wife. From when we first arrived the welcome was warm, the service was top notch. We were seated at a window table and had the fantastic view of the sun going down over the castle in Ballybunion. My wife ordered Sea Bass and I had steak. Both meals were exceptional. Prices were very reasonable.

Revisited this restaurant after a many years, a change of ownership and a complete refurbishment. Has been tastefully modernised. In the past this restaurant had an excellent reputation for seafood. Visied as a family party for evening dinner. Good selection of starters- chowder was tasty, creamy with a good variety and quantity of fish. Mushroom starter was possibly a misinterpretation...
