Went here with a friend on Saturday evening early. Got a lovely table by the window. The leather seats were so comfortable, fabulous log burning fire, exposed brickwork, soft candle lighting. I had the mushrooms risotto starter which was amazing, followed by the fish & chips. My friend had fishcakes to start, Thai scented seabass and an orange chocolate desert.... More

We stopped in here to warm up after a long walk along the cliff. There was a wood fire in the stove and hot chocolate for our teenagers, which made them very happy. We ordered some snacks and drinks, but didn't have a full meal so I can't comment on the menu. However I would highly recommend this as a... More

We were met by a waitress and asked if we were happy where we were to be seated. The table we preferred was a round table... More

My friend recommends visiting Ocean Bar & Grill for our lunch. The place was decorated in style and the staffs are very accommodating. Every time I visit an Irish restaurant, it’s my mantra to order seafood chowder if it’s available in the menu. Although it’s just a starter, it was a decent portion and one of the best seafood chowder... More
