We go there very often, and as always everything is perfect, from the staff to the food and outstanding view. The owner is very nice and always there. I can't say enough about the Chef. Just amazing! I highly recommend the seafood platter, salmon and the seafood chowder, but believe me: every single bite is gorgeous!

However, the setting is superb and the management and staff great... More

This restaurant is set on the bay just a few km south of Donegal Town. The view is exquisite and the food delicious with generous portions.

We came upon this great restaurant by chance. Picturesque setting by tidal bay. Excellent seafood . We had steamed mussels in a garlic cream sauce followed by grilled salmon. Others were delighted with the fish cakes. Friendly and efficient service.

We happened to pass this venue by chance and we are very glad we did. The food is outstanding! I highly recommend the mussels and the lemon sole. The staff were friendly and very helpful and understanding with our 2 young children.

It would be better if one staff member was allocated per table, as my starter was late and no-one came to take a dessert order. As I said though, food and staff very good and the... More
