Restaurant 23 @ Balmoral Hotel

On the scenic seafront of Warrenpoint, a smart room above the Balmoral Hotel now serves as a remarkable contemporary restaurant.


There’s a great team at work here – the proprietors are one of Northern Ireland's most highly-regarded chefs, Raymond McArdle (former head chef at the Nuremore Hotel, Carrickmacross) and his wife, Andrea, and Raymond heads up a talented kitchen team.


Despite the stylish surroundings and accomplished cooking, it’s an accessible place and enticing menus designed to please all tastes are based on carefully sourced, quality ingredients.


The style is broadly upbeat modern classical (which allows for some of the currently fashionable Asian influences), to include tasty lunchtime food as well as the sophisticated evening dishes which many first time diners will be anticipating. 


Excellent attention to detail is seen in delicious freshly baked breads, tempting desserts and homemade petit fours with your after dinner coffee.


The same care is reflected in a well chosen wine list, and the service brings an easy blend of Northern friendliness and professional skill.


With such a talented and confident chef in the kitchen, a relaxed ambience and good value, this stylish restaurant is a great asset to the area - and the view over Carlingford Lough, with the mountains in the background, is lovely.
