We had a fabulous meal here. Looked at the dessert menu first as we do and had all planned what to have but after a delicious entree and the fabulous steak we were so full we had to give dessert a miss, much to our dissapointment.

It's been a long time since we've met such an enthusiastic staff who was passionate about her work. Food was good pub food. Portions were generous. We had the mussels and BBQ ribs. Both were delicious. The meal wasn't gourmet but just basics done well. However it was the staff that made the lasting impression!

After a long day on the road and not many food places open on Sunday night in Westport. The D Dog was just what we needed. Great selection of food on offer, very accommodating staff and our meals were very nice even though they took a wee while to arrive - understandable given how busy

Highly recommended restaurant by our lovely host Noeline at the Buller Court Motel and we we're not disappointed. Great seafood chowder Pork,Venison, Pate and Mussels all cooked to perfection. Only criticism would be a bit more sauce on the pork.

This is definitely THE place to eat in Westport - good menu, quality food well cooked and presented, friendly staff - only minor downside is that if you haven't booked you may well have to have a drink at the bar before a table becomes free

We got a backpacker deal, which was advertised at our hostel and very good value (had to take a card from the hostel to 'prove' we were backpackers). The food was good and it was quite an interesting place. Got the impression that there was not too much competition in Westport. Staff a bit disorganised, but friendly.

Good food and friendly staff. Popular restaurant enticing enough to return the next evening. All four of our party liked Westport, and the Denniston Dog was an added bonus. Voluntarily recommended by another satisfied diner as we entered.

A most enjoyable meal after a long day's travelling served in pleasant surroundings. A good selection from the Menu and Daily Specials. Reasonably priced and good portion sizes.
