This is a superb restaurant...we have dined all over the world but the staff here are as good as it gets anywhere,if not better...they catered to my wife's food allergies with a menu on table when we arrived....no reminder needed on our arrival and they said they could make anything that complied...how rare is this! The food was superb,great atmosphere... More

I wouldn't recommend this place. The building was unique with character, but the service and food were terrible. The food was tasteless and cold and the servers spent more talking and telling people they were booked up, even with many empty tables everywhere, than providing service. It was disappointing because everything else in all of Westport is wonderful.

We were in Westport for Easter and were glad we had pre-booked into the upstairs restaurant which was very busy but very cosy.

Someone recommended this restaurant to us... More

Looks nice on the outside but it's very boring inside and no atmosphere. Definitely not for tourists as it doesn't feel very Irish really.

8 of us ate here while staying down in the area. Staff were great (and we got a bit loud at times) and very friendly. Food was well priced, great portions and perfect. Great menu choice had crab claws (great) and a perfectly cooked amd massive tbone. Well priced drinks and final bill, would highly recommend.
