On previous visits we have always struggled to get a table straight away but with it being midweek and early afternoon we were able to order our view straight away. Despite this, there... More

Fantastic views over Lough Foyle from the many tables situated at the windows. The real fire is also very inviting in the bar area. A fantastic menu with varied specials. Would recommend sticking to the specials as they are always excellent. The lamb was great today and the chowder as always was very good. Large portions so beware ordering starters... More

called in on a tour of coastline and had lunch. Great value, great fresh food and excellent friendly staff. Views over the Foyle estuary only improve the cosy dining area. Open fires and great beer also worth a try. Will be back

Hadn't been here for a couple of years. Pleasant attentive staff. Our meal was perfect and my steak was cooked to perfection. No complaints what... More

Got to visit the Point Bar shortly after Christmas and it was fabulous, the food is delicious and the staff are first class. We go here as often as we can and I love their food and the ambience.
