The attractive facade and bill of fare entice you to enter. Inside is attractive with warm lighting and textures of wood, stone and cloth. The service is prompt despite a busy lunch crowd. The salmon, crab salad and seafood chowder are all excellent. Try to leave room for a dessert. I finally chose the apple-strawberry crumble over the sticky figure pudding.

We were impressed. Friendly and welcoming with an extraordinary selection of whiskeys. Fish Pie was excellent, the prawn salad less so, more Tesco prawns than Dublin Bay...especially compared with other restaurants in Ulster (the Cuan for example). Quite pricy too.

This is a nice friendly pub style restaurant with a fairly varied menu. I had the rack of lamb which was absolutely delicious. My wife had fish and liked it but probably not as much as I enjoyed mine. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Nice choice right in the heart of Donegal Town.

Ate here on two occasions on our weekend break in Donegal. They serve good food and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Most importantly they serve a good pint of Guinness.
