Great location, as you walk to the door you expect to be delighted, but once inside it disappoints. Staff are friendly but otherwise it is characterless and bland. Shame as, with a bit of attention, this could (and should) be so much better.

The Percy French Restaurant is perfectly located at the entrance to the Slieve Donard Hotel. Great views, a friendly ambience, good service and pleasant food. A visit is strongly recommended.

The food is modern Irish. Fish and chips were quite good, and very fresh. The restaurant has great views, and is adjoining the historic Slieve Donard resort.
