We found this little restaurant and stopped for a light lunch. The place was full but the friendly waitress found us a little table by the window.

The food was outstanding - we had open sandwiches ( goats cheese) which were lovely. Freshest of bread for the closed tuna sandwich and lovely salad.
This would be a great place for an evening meal with good wine selection.

We will be back!

Thank Schuwi

Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you found us and enjoyed! We always recommend booking as we can get very busy, but will always do our best to find a table. We have a variety of dishes on offer, with light lunches and healthy bites, to classic Don Paddy's favourites such as our Fish & Chips. As we transform into a wine bar come the evening, our menu is complimented by selection of Wines and Gins on offer. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

This is a great place to get together. A variety of food on offer. A bit pricey but great quality. I prefer to eat in the bar downstairs but also a more formal dining room upstairs and a relaxed room as well. Would recommend to anyone. Enjoy your food.

My partner and I visited Don Paddy's spur of the moment for a quick drink while in the area. The service was lovely the decor is a little dated but I think it adds to the charm.
The front of the cafe is white light but the back is quite dark.
They had a good drink selection which was also fair priced.
We did spy some of the specials on the board and we would like to return to try some out.
