I had the leek and potato soup (soup of the day) which was very warming and filling. I don't usually have soup when I go out because I find that it gets over-seasoned. But Cafe Arnou does a good job in getting the flavours right....More

Some of our favourite dishes were the seafood chowder, goatcheese and beetroot salad, steak and sweet potato fries, sweet potato soup, pear tart and great irish coffee.

Over priced, small portion, customer service not great, disappointing visit. Won't be back.... Waitress hadn't a clue about gluten free and had to keep going back and forward to the chef.

A group of us visited last week, food was delicious, we all had different burgers and everyone was happy, service was friendly and efficient, the place was full and with just 2 staff and they did a great job keeping everyone happy.

Consistently excellent and fun. Great way to sit and watch the horses and riders come and go from the Dunfanaghy Stables. Great for an outdoor cocktail.More
