This is a gorgeous quaint little restaurant in Barna, that is well worth visiting. What a lovely atmosphere, we visited for lunch which was served downstairs overlooking the Pier. They have more space upstairs for evening meals and it too is gorgeous. No point in having the place, if the food does not match, but no problem here as our... More

So good we went for lunch here two days running! Amazing food, excellent wine list and friendly staff. If you are lucky enough to get a table by the window you will find it very hard to leave!

I like O'Gradys and have gone there several times over the years with great success. This time though the scallops were served lukewarm which spoiled the experience.

This place never disappoints. I have been coming here for the last 4 years and my sister had her wedding there. It's a lovely restaurant with great views and excellent food. The staff (man) who served us (Saturday 11th of Feb, 2017) was super friendly and really good at his job. The only negative thing I would say about the... More

I felt like I was in a movie, a cold and rainy night, when the taxi pulls up to this place on the sea. I went inside and it was warm and cozy. Then I walked up the winding staircase to a wonderful table overlooking the water (which I couldn't see because it was dark but you could feel it).... More
