My partner and I were spending weekend in Castlebar, first time there so did not really know where nice places to eat were. We went for a walk in the evening looking for a place we could eat in. We spotted Seasons @ Mulroy's and decided to give it a try. We had the day's specials, tomato and basil soup and slow roast pork belly with mediterannean ragout. The food was nice overall, the pork belly was cooked in a bit too high temperature and a bit too short, so it was little dry and chewy, but the seasoning was nice, I liked the hint of star anisse in it. The ragout was nice but what absolutely stole my heart were the beetroots cooked in red wine with cloves. The tomato soup would have been much better if the tomato seeds were not in it - canned tomatoes were used, which is good in general, as the fresh tomatoes you can buy in this country lack flavour ;) Anyway, we liked the food and the staff so much, that we decided to return the following day.This time my partner went for breast of duck in red wine (I presume it was Madeira) and cherry jus and I chose pan seared cod. The jus for the duck was so wonderful that I could have eaten it all on its own (I must admit, I stole all the cherries from my partner's plate). The breast was nicely cooked, the only problem I had with it was the skin that was not crispy on top. Anyway, again, a piece of duck landed on my plate as I was so tempted by the look of it. When it comes to pan seared cod... OMG!!! The first time in months did I have a piece of fish that was not killed twice. Absolutely perfect, moist, juicy, not overcooked - my compliments to the chef. What can I say... If I ever find myself in Castlebar again, I will definitely return to Seasons. And if you haven't been there yet - go! It's definitely worth it :)
