Having left the area 4 months ago we stayed with old friends in Strangford and the fact that the Artisan was the chosen eatery for our "celebration" only enhanced the enjoyment of the weekend.As ever the menu provided an excellent and concise selection with a variety of wines to choose from and most importantly at the end of the evening the satisfaction rating which included the eager and smiling young staff was 10/10.

Another very enjoyable mean in Artisan, a year on from my last visit. Last time, my wife and I enjoyed a delicious evening meal in this modern and cosy restaurant.

This time, on a weekend break in Portaferry, we crossed the Lough especially for a lunchtime visit and our memories of the great food and friendly staff rang true again.

The menu offers great choices of contemporary favourites as well as old classics. For our lunch, we opted for the delicious seafood chowder which is there best chowder I’ve ever tasted..it’s so good it’s one of the reasons we were keen to go back!

For our main course, we each enjoyed the seafood linguine (when on the Ards Peninsula, you have to take advantage of the local fresh seafood!) which was superb. It was complimented by a nice white wine their generous wine list.

We shared a coffee sponge dessert which, although we both enjoyed, wasn’t quite up to the standard of the starter and main courses. The ice cream served with the sponge was still frozen although the sliced mango really brought a kick to it.

Prices are reasonable, the service is very good and we are looking forward to our next visit...hopefully it won’t be as long next time!

We was over from Yorkshire visiting my mum in Seaforde. Went for breakfast because of trip adviser Reviews and it was really nice. Fantastic service and they even made my son his favourite breakfast bespoke! Great quality food presented really well. Highly recommend and we will come back for an evening meal next time. Thank you

We visited Strangford during our holidays and were really surprised about this high standard of quality and prepairing the food. We know it from Germany only at a Michelin Star restaurant. There was seafood and traditional Irish dishes. It was just great. The restaurants itself
is in modern style, we really felt comfortable. We definitely come back.
