Visited here on eve of new years eve. Seated promptly and served immediately with beautiful home baked mushroom bread !! Goats cheese, and black pudding starters were to die for. Chicken and lamb steak mains were lovely too. Great service and excellent choice of wine. Well deserved position as number one restaurant in Westport !

Floor service excellent and price... More
