We had a delicious dinner. Local crab and smoked salmon starter was simple but the quality of the ingredients made it special. Fillet steak forestiere was cooked exactly as ordered. The lamb and hake mains were very tasty too. Creme brûlée was great as was the chocolate fondant with salted caramel sauce. The food is on a par with that in Rathmullan House. One tiny suggestion - maybe the music could do with a rethink. A little more modern maybe?

Well presented plates, friendly service, and a willingness to produce food to suit all palates, including hard to please teenagers. Very pleasantly surprised. Hard to get a table without booking at weekend.

We found this little restaurant by chance. Did not have a booking but noticed everyone else seemed to have booked in advance - so take heed!. We enjoyed a superb dinner from an exciting menu

Once again I must highly commend Ronnie & Caroline & their dedicated team for another 1st class meal. From beginning to end it was a fabulous dining experience even when accompanied by our 3 energetic &fussy kids. Nothing was too much trouble. Our waitress cara was as always delightful, our wine waiter extremely helpful in his recommendations, food was superb & went beyond the necessary in every way! If u ever have the opportunity to visit this heavenly village of rathmullan in donegal be sure to visit the ferry gate for a gastromical delight!!u will not be disappointed! Karen flanagan

my first visit to this restaurant under the current owners,food was very good,disappointing that the fish choice was only wild seatrout(out of hake) no other,the service was very good on a quiet night, but overall well worth the visit.
