This restaurant is situated very nicely over-looking the bay in Dunmore East. The décor is tasteful and I have been quite a frequent visitor, where I have usually enjoyed their pizzas. However, I don't expect to return anytime soon in the future. Our last visit was marred by really bland, over-cooked food, patently cheap ingredients, un-drinkable wine, very poor service and an overly defensive - verging on aggressive - maitre d. Our waiter coughed over olives he was delivering to the table opposite. Our (not fresh but not stale) bread arrived with the main course. We had to ask for water three times. When paying, I told the waiter very politely that we didn't have a satisfactory experience & to give him his due, he was very receptive and apologetic. I said that the main issue was that food was very disappointing. To top it off, was when we were accosted by the maitre d as we were leaving. We didn't ask to speak to him at all but he approached us , nevertheless. He took enormous umbrage that we didn't enjoy our experience and became quite aggressive to the point where we both had to walk away. All of this, coupled with Celtic Tiger prices, means that we won't be back anytime soon. and wouldn't recommend anyone else to visit either until they find a chef who can work with the maitre d and who is allowed to completely re-vamp the menu.

My wife and I ate dinner here, and thought the service to be very good. We sat outside, and the heaters were a nice touch and kept us warm. I had the sirloin steak, which was done perfectly, my wife a chicken dish with tomato sauce, which she ate without leaving me any. Delicious homemade desserts, especially the Tiramasu. I had also come here the night before to hear some music and had a really good time.

Great value (for Ireland) for great food. We had two courses from their set menu and it arrived promptly, was excellent quality seafood and cost less than eur 50 for the two of us. This was on fathers day and we had no reservation. The restaurant was busy but they still found space for us outside on a lovely sunny day!

Have stopped in here for food a few times when i have been in Dunmore East,its located where The Ship used to be on the way in to the village.Azzurro serves Italian/Mediterranean food & it is delicious.The problem i have every time though is the service it is so slow,it can be annoying & the staff are apologetic every time but i still don't know what the delay is !
On a more positive note,as i said before the food is delicious & full of flavour,so no fault there & it is reasonably priced.Its very laid back & families are made feel very welcome.The staff are nice although the barman should smile a bit more !
If you don't mind waiting for your food then you should consider dropping by the next time you are in Dunmore East,you won't be disappointed when you eventually get your food !
