Mike Burke’s well-located harbourside establishment has lots of maritime character and views out over the harbour to Dunguaire Castle.
You’ll find seafood like fat, tasty mussels in moules marinière, with a milky onion and wine broth, and perhaps pan-fried skate, which is rarely seen on restaurant menus.
Lobster is a speciality - served in the shell with garlic butter and a side salad - and something else they take pride in is top of the range steak, using local beef (totally traceable), which is slaughtered and butchered to order.
Whether eating casually downstairs or up in the more formal first floor restaurant this is an enjoyable place to eat, both for its good food and friendly service - and the lovely view.
And there’s also music, all year: bands on Friday & Saturday nights usually, also traditional on Sunday afternoon. (Phone ahead to check availability).
