Visited on New Year's Day 2017 as I absolutely love the place but I have to say there are a number of things that let the visit down this time. Firstly though I have to say the food was as always faultless! We had made a reservation but despite this had to wait a little while to be seated. We... More

We are here before. Was better a few years ago. Not busy. Staff not overly interested. Food ok but not all as expected. Location beautiful. Building clean and modern. For the number 1 restaurant in Buncrana we were disappointed. If I had lower expectations I would have given this a higher rating.

Great spot, great service/staff, great food, great cocktails in a window seat with views of the Lough Swilly, the beach and Rathmullan in the distance within walking distance of the Ferry. We could walk to our hotel/ the town centre in 10 mins.

Very nice but a bit on the expensive side. If you want a dish of mussels ask for their seafood chowder!! Not what I expected as a chowder.
