Couldn't have enjoyed my meal at the Baytree any more. We were a large group, facilitated in a private dining room. The service was excellent and swift, and the menu was fabulous. Was taken aback by the quality of the food both in terms of presentation and quality. Not to be missed in Carlingford!

The food was tasty and well presented. The chicken and mushroom pie starter, along with the seafood platter was out of this world. I was in the... More

Wow! Where will I start? From the moment we walked in the door, we were welcomed and well looked after. I haven't been to a restaurant in so long where I have wanted to eat everything off the menu! As I ate my Caesar salad, chicken with mash and the ravishing raspberry roulade, I was getting food envy from all... More

We visited The Bay Tree last Saturday night with a group of friends, everything about the evening was fantastic, the service, the wine, the ambience, but most importantly the food was incredible, definitely the best restaurant in Carlingford, would highly recommend it.

We had a fantastic evening in the Baytree Restaurant and it was very reasonably priced too - we had our four year old son with us. They catered very well for him! Conor, the chef brought out our meals and had time to chat to our little fella which was a lovely touch! We (the adults) had chowder to start,... More
