Had a meal here last year when staying near Dungloe and it was lovely and wholesome, so as back in the area recently we decided to visit again, though ensured we booked - thank goodness we did for both nights this time round. Service on both nights was super and enough said, staff are pleaseant and nothing is too much throuble.
First night I went for the special of half a lobster and sirloin steak. Both were cooked beautifully, with my steak done exactly, as asked, medium rare. The lobster was delicious! The better 'alf had the pork, which was stuffed and cooked in a breadcrumb and she enjoyed this with mash, while I had the garlic chips, which were a good combination for my meal. The good lady had a dessert, which was fruit salad and ice-cream and it was quite refreshing. I on the other hand had a bottle of sauvignon blanc with my meal and the good lady had two pure orange. I had a pint before the meal. The cost was 78 euro, a snip for what we had.
On the second night, I had the lambshank and it was like last year, melt in the mouth, though the accompanying sauce was tastier with a slighyly more aromatic kick. The onion rings, I had as a side were light and crisp. The other half had the cod and wow was it massive, but cooked and tasted scrummy. The chips she had were a bit of a let down and looked, as if they had been reheated. We both had starters, her having the spicy chicken wings and they looked good and must have tasted great too, as they were stripped to the bone. I had the chowder, which was light and delicious, though it might be a bit creamy for some and suited me.
A great place for super food, if you are in Dungloe, but if going at the weekend, it might be advisable to book, which we did for both nights, as it was pretty busy. I am already looking forward to my next visit, which unfortunately is likely to be next year.
A well done to the Bayview for its' food, standard of service, pleasant staff and maintaining high standards.
