Willie's is a gem of a restaurant. Michelin star but you won't suffer tiny portions like in a lot of other restaurants. The staff at friendly and welcoming and will help you choose wine and food. Went in a group of 4 and sat on the terrace outside which is beautiful. The food is outstanding, some of the best I've ever had, the quiche as a starter or the seafood ravioli are favourites and the duck main is truly amazing. I can't recommend this restaurant enough.

Recent visit on a Monday evening whilst staying at lake spa resort.
Very welcoming on arrival and enjoyed a drink on the terrace before taking our table. The food is very good - we enjoyed a mix of fish / seafood and meat ( including a very good lobster consommé which we had as an extra course ). Wine list complements the menu and maître d helpful in making choices. Overall bill c€280 for 4 courses each, 2 glasses of champagne and a glass of dessert wine.
Head chef toured the tables on our visit too, and was happy to chat for 5-10 mins about many things - other restaurants, his training and football !
It was what I would have expected given the (better) reviews on here and elsewhere and is definitely worth seeking out if you like a good meal.

We arrived without a reservation quite late after a late arrival. We were immediately found a table outside. No problem that we only wanted a main course due to the late hour. Excellent wine recommendation. Discreet but efficient service. Food was delicious just what you would expect from a one Michelin star establishment.
