We visited the restaurant for my husband's 30th birthday and while the food was absolutely faultless the service was a bit on the slow side. The servers were fantastic however it took 2 courses before I received my drink and we did have to wait a while in between courses. Regardless of this I would highly recommend it!

I ate here in 2012, I liked the food then... I returned in 2017 and I LOVED the food. I feel the menu was a lot more accessible this time.

From delicious dishes to divine wines all in a pleasant atmosphere. The waiter was helpful in selecting a tasty wine for our meal and we enjoyed every dish. I would certainly suggest you pay them a visit.

Food was delicious - had sea bass one night and young Irish chicken the next. My only comment would be that some of the chairs were a bit worn.

Description
La Fougere is a multiple award-winning restaurant, perched on the hill side overlooking Clew Bay & Croagh Patrick. Seamus Commons, one of Ireland’s most respected chefs, heads up the team at this Westport restaurant and the food is impeccable; with fresh fish, caught and landed daily, locally reared beef and lamb with fruit & vegetables grown in Knockranny’s gardens. Eating at La Fougere is all about relaxed fine dining, great food chosen from local producers and an interesting wine list – in great company.

It’s a fantastic place to gather, open a bottle of wine, take in the breath-taking views and choose something from the delicious menu.
