Just a quick review. If you like game then this is the place for you. Locally sourced deliciously cooked and exquisitely presented wood pigeon starter and perfect venison main. Excellent meal!!

My wife and I attended the game tasting night a few weeks ago. It was simply superb. I have dined out in lots of places over the years and this is right up there with the best and I include in that the Mill Restaurant in Dunfanaghy which have won many accolades. Many congratulations to the owner and staff for... More

First time to Oysters and can't wait to return! The food,staff and service were all faultless. In particular the goats cheese starter was delicious. Also the steaks were second to none We have booked again for next week If only you were open on Christmas Day!!

From beginning to end this is simply the best venue in the area to eat. Beautifully prepared and presented and professional staff, who were attentive but not intrusive.

As a regular visitor to Oysters, I felt the need to submit my review. Having read some of the negative comments, I'm confused. We have never left this restaurant disappointed !! As a matter of fact, i think it just keeps getting better. I've tried several different dishes, and everyone has impressed me. I do enjoy ordering my two favourites... More

Dear Reviewer, You have restored our confidence in the human race! As you have alluded to, we received a recent nasty review from a customer we have no doubt now had set out simply to sabotage the restaurant's reputation for his own ends! I won't go into detail but we are delighted that you felt the need to feedback on... More

I've waited for sometime to come to Oysters and it didn't disappoint! We were seated in the waiting area with menus and drinks which was cosy and warm. After a very short wait we were seated at our table. Once again the dining area was very cosy and warm! I had the Fillet Steak and I have to say that's... More

I would like to warn other restaurants against this individual. He was a very unsavoury character intent on causing trouble at our establishment from the minute he entered the premises. His other reviews suggest a problem in paying on his behalf. It is normally company policy to respond to all reviews but due to the unacceptable conduct, on the evening... More

This place has won several awards for fine dining & now offers an exceptional high tea set menu at a discounted price. The warmth of the place is very attractive with a relaxed ambience. The staff are excellent & the food is very, very good. This is a great place for a family gathering or intimate or romantic meal.

Not my first time here. Great hospitality, mood and service in the past. I started with a pigeon salad with black pudding and a sweet balsamic dressing.. Amazing and so well balanced!

Good food generally and the waitresses were very helpful but its a pity about the portion size of the deconstructed cheesecake.
