Living in the UK one of the things I look forward to doing when I return home to Buncrana is eating out with my family and where better than the Ubiquitous. Consistency is paramount when it comes to food quality and taste and this place never disappoints. Situated in the centre of town means that it is easy to find and easy to move on to the local bars afterwards. With a wide variety of starters, mains and deserts on the menu you are sure to find something you like from fish and shellfish, amazing steaks and a huge selection of side order including an array of potato based dishes e.g. garlic potatoes, champ or dauphinoise to name a few! Prices are reasonable and in line with the quality of the food and cosiness and ambience of the restaurant. The Ubiquitous is a must - worth travelling to if you are not in the area

My friends and I frequent of this restaurant so much lately. It is located in the heart of Buncrana Main Street with various local pubs and nightclubs nearby, This is not the main reason for our visits...the menu is widely varied with something to suit all diets....when delivered fresh to the table the food tastes amazing! Also at an amazing price!
Steve, the proprietor (who is also a chef) ensures that everyone is satisfied with their meal and creates a really welcoming ambiance in the restaurant. He visits each table offering advice on food options, wine selections and is generally hospitable to every visitor...this restaurant is a true gem in our small town and defo worth a visit!
Check out the Galliano Hot Shot and Café Crème Express as something you haven't tried before!
Thanks Steve and gang....Happy New Year xxx

We went in for an early Saturday evening dinner and there is a really nice atmosphere. The staff are really friendly and there is real value on the innovative menu. We will be back.

Told you we'd be back!! My mouth was nearly watering before I got into the restaurant at the thought of my goats cheese and blueberry starter - even TASTIER this time around. In fact the whole meal was fantastic. Everyone kept repeating how tasty the food was. My father had a steak which he said was the nicest he had in years, perfectly cooked.
One wee small issue (and it is small!), communication with waiting staff. They were great in fairness :), but my partner noticed that they didn't seem to have their own sections. We were asked for our dessert order three times by three different staff and again same issue with cutlery and drinks. Indeed it is better to be over served than under and the place was booked out so fair play to the service provided :)
