Great location overlooking Gorey bay. Luckily we managed to get in as we hadn't booked. Excellent quality of food. Pleasant staff. Obviously had regulars in from partially heard conversations.

Good choice of menu, good food. It gets busy so go early and if the sun is out sit on one of the outdoor tables and watch the world go by, good view of the watersports from here too.

Perfect spot for lunch, just above the beach. Friendly, speedy service which included a water bowl for our dog! Fresh food imaginatively served and very much enjoyed.
