Good menu selection available. It's a good idea to book a table in advance :/ Food very well presented as you would expect for the price they charge. Staff seems to be afraid of the curly hair woman ...probably the owner 😅 Overall nice spot 👍

we weren't able to get into the Atlantic Coast hotel restaurant because a fun evening at Sol Rio would have been missed ! On 3 floors, this is a largish restaurant but the tables felt intimate and there was a warmth about the place. The food was tasty - good quality albeit the hake had lots of bones in it.... More

Dined here with husband. The food was nice. Between us we had a fish starter, a cod dish and vegetarian pancake option. The ambience was pleasant. Overall everything was nice without blowing us away... After a relaxing meal there seemed to be a dash to romove dishes and move us along. This was a bit annoying given that we paid... More

We picked this restaurant at the last minute as most places were closed. We are so thankful that we did. What a find. The staff were so easygoing and friendly, the atmosphere was perfect and I tip my hat to the chef, because it must be one of the nicest meals out we have had in so so long. Ever... More

Ate here with 10 friends and we had a great experience. Broad selection on menu, catered for all tastes! Lots of sides & friendly service. Steak got thumbs up but might give the chowder a miss next time. Banoffi to die for!! :) Decor was modern and cosy at the same time - on point. Great experience, we'll remember Westport... More

We found this restaurant walking around Westport during the day and liked the menu so we said we'd come back that night, the service was second to none, the food was amazing and very reasonable priced, the desserts were delicious and they even brought out a selection of desserts on the house! I'd recommend anyone looking for somewhere really nice... More

What a find! Had an amazing Sunday lunch here with 8 friends. Great selection of dishes. Had Seafood Chowder to start. It was so filling. Smoked Salmon Risotto to follow. Beautiful. Share a few desserts which were beautifully presented. Staff friendly. Hidden gem. Go!

The location/staff/atmosphere was absolute perfection and we were lucky to get a reservation on a Saturday night. However,the food was a tad overcomplicated in terms of flavour and presentation, something that wasn't needed for steaks or seafood. I would recommend ditching the washy pink plates and sweet bread, the food was good quality but the dining experience could have been... More
