Popped in here for fish and chips to avoid the torrential rain. The food was excellent. Great portions and very good value. The staff were very friendly and attentitive. Worth a visit!

This was without doubt the best meal we had on holiday in Ireland. There were so many things we wanted to try on the menu, but we only had two days. What we did have was excellent, especially the Killybegs smoked haddock, exceptional. The restaurant is well decorated, clean and contemporary. But the staff excelled always finding us a good table, even when we just turned up. Thank you Jo, we will be back.

My wife, two children and I ate in Quay West on Sunday evening. The only thing better than the food was the lady, Joan, that looked after us. Joan moved us to a window table when one became available before taking our order. Joan was just a fantastic host who showed genuine interest and even gave us rain gear for a walk in the forest that she had recommended. The food was outstanding, Mussels to start that I only got a couple of as the rest of my family helped themselves and Cod for mains cooked to perfection. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. Thank you Joan and the rest of the team for a very memorable evening.
