Another fantastic meal at Katch 27. Crab claws, monkfish scampi, salt and chilli prawns followed by Halibut, Monkfish and Brill mains. All very fresh, tasty and extremely well prepared. Atmosphere is lovely and service, as always, was excellent. The Bounty cheesecake was the icing on...More

Had a beautiful, relaxed, chilled out meal with the whole family for my dad's 75th Birthday. Great food and friendly service staff. Portion size is generous yet we all managed to clear our plates. I would highly recommend

Interestingly, a very wide selection of dinner options from a relatively small restaurant. Clean and tidy, with a view of the kitchen and its chefs, helps to connect the patrons (est. 26 places) with their pre-eating environment. Our menu choices included crabs claws as starters,...More

A group of us went here, some office friends for a special birthday celebration. It was excellent. The food just couldn`t have been better and the service was second to none. Thank you for a very nice evening

Hi, we do have vegetarian options Brie, vege curry, stroganoff or baguettes e.g. As everything is cooked fresh any special requests we are happy to deliver providing we have the ingredients. Hope to see you soon.

“Katch27 - Overrated Restaurant?” 3 of 5 starsPending review With regard to our comments on lunch at Katch27 in January 2016. We can understand the owner being unhappy with our review and his comments defending the restaurant. We aim to be truthful and honest about our experience and are only expressing our opinion. As we said in the review, the food was good but nothing special, and the staff were friendly. We would not go out of our way to visit Katch27 in Kircubbin again as we know we can get equally good, or better, food in a cosier atmosphere in other restaurants. Our disappointment stems from our expectations being too high after reading some of the good reviews.
