Description: This is a restaurant attached to the Cromleach Lodge Hotel, which is listed with Tripadvisor. I have never stayed in the hotel but I often dine in the restaurant and wouild like to review it. It is probably Ireland's best restaurant and has won numerous awards, and visitors to that area should know about it.

“So good we ate here 2 nights in a row!”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

A meal i will remember for a life time.

Both my partner and i had such a great feast at this restaurant on the first night of our West coast of Ireland trip that we dined there again on the second night. I am vegetarian and he is not but we both loved our meals immensely.

Lovely, personalised service.

Get there if you can.

“Brought joy from despair”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

We had booked a stay at the lodge via an online reservation system. Got to the lodge after driving all day--13 + hours-- needless to say we were hungry and exhausted after 9 pm. Got to the lodge only to find that despite having specified that we needed wheelchair accommodations, the lodge had not been notified and our room was two flights up on a night when the place was fully booked! The owner was distraught and went right to work with his staff to find an accommodation at another hotel. In the meantime he personally seated us at Moira's, and we ended up having one of the best meals we have ever had anywhere--the scallop appetizer was outstanding, as was the fish special and the chicken. Eat here if you have the chance, and tell the owner that Ron and Rebecca, two stranded New Yorkers, say a grateful "hey."
PS. They founded us a great room at the Glass House in Sligo.

“Enjoyable food with a great view”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Although Cromleach is local to us we had not taken the opportunity to eat there until recently.
We went up last Friday night, without a booking and were given a table promptly, the food was very enjoyable but the best thing is the view and the laid back atmosphere of the whole setting.

“Restaurant”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

Nice restaurant with very good and friendly service. Top quality food, only spoiled by the use of too much "experimental" sauces which in the case of fish dishes tended to "kill" the flavours of the excellent fish.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

The narrow, winding road to reach this place is well worth it. The food is outstanding and the service impeccable. The views are amazing. The owner checks in with each table to make sure everything is alright. Loved it!!
