If I'm to be honest I had heard many great reviews about the food here and had quite high expectations which has probably led to my disappointment.

There were 8 people in our party and after hunting high and low for a member of staff in order to give us menus, we finally seated ourselves indoors at a table near the entrance bar.
I could not see any other guests so i presumed that our orders would be taken quickly...this was not the case. When we were finally served, the staff member was less than enthusiastic to be serving us. A smile would definitely have eased the awkward atmosphere that came with them.
When our food did arrive, the meal was very basic and could have been put together in only a few minutes. This certainly did not reflect the hefty price that came with each of the dishes.
It tasted ok...nothing more but it was definitely the price that offended us (£16.95 for a sirloin steak sandwich which was no more a sirloin than a piece of over cooked frying steak) The waitress did not even ask how we would prefer for it to be cooked!
Personally i will take a picnic next time i go to Lusty Beg island as i could provide myself with quite a banquet for the same price that we paid, and still have higher quality.

Was so looking forward to going here. But I was so let down by the unfriendly staff. Meal was really nothing special. The setting was amazing but so let down by their staff. Very disappointed.

We had the bar food on Lusty Beg. It was with out a doubt the best bar food we have ever had. The staff were full of life and the service was extremely quick. Even the presentation of the food was top notch. All of the menu is a reasonable price too. There was even bar entertainment on the day we visited. The island itself is beautiful. Honestly, what's not to like?! We will definitely be back.
