Dined here whilst staying in Donegal town. Service was excellent. We both had steaks which were really lovely. I also had sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce. It was really delicious. We have dined here a few times and always leave happy.

The seafood is delicious, especially the cod fillet. The fish and its side vegetable were perfectly cooked and flavoured, and the server was very attentive and suggested a great local beer to pair with it. If you want great seafood in Donegal Town, check out the Harbour.
