Returned here with my family a few weeks ago after having a splendid experience over the summer and we have to say we were not disappointed. The food and service is an even higher standard of excellence, each dish was nicely presented. We went for the a la carte option this time round and we were surely not disappointed. Each... More

The mains were the biggest let down... More

Good food but very slow and poor service. Started with dirty glass covered in lipstick, sent back for a clean one. 30 mins between each course. Did not specify coffee was not part of early bird and charged 7.50 even when I queried. Also one member did not have dessert and asked for coffee instead and still charged 2.50 euro.... More

I visited Tra Ban in Strandhill with my Latvian friends. You will need to book ahead as it gets busy at the end of the week. Atmosphere was warm and friendly. We had an excellent lamb on the bone slow cooked in the oven and delicious dessert after that.I can recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes a good food.

Given the fact that its right beside the beach the quality of seafood was just disappointing. Heard good things about other dishes though. Please work on you seafood it needs to be served fresh
