Not that the main restaurant in the hotel was bad, it was great, but Percy French was more our speed. More of a pub feel, but with excellent food and great service.

The Percy French is attached to the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa. What a lovely restaurant and I had the best daube of beef I've ever tasted. Definitely worth a visit.

Having visited a few times in the past and being disappointed especially as the restaurant is part of the Slieve Donard,, we were pleased that the quality of the food seems to have improved. Lovely setting, staff were attentive and friendly and Sunday lunch was very good value.

Had a lovely time with a group of just under 30 friends and relatives to wish my uncle a happy birthday. Staff were very helpful and polite. Food was delicious. And as the sun set we had a glorious view of the Irish Sea set next to Newcastle Strand.

Myself and my sister had lunch there on Sunday while staying at the Slieve Donard. We waited for a long time for a table even though it wasn't that busy.

Cocktails were nice, Salad was lovely, main meal had the beef and chuncky chips, the presentation was beautiful, but didn't taste as nice as it looked. Desert, I was very disapointed it was the selection of icecream looked like the old 3layer icecream you used to get and tastes very similar nothing to shout about. The staff were very friendly...
