We arrived late for our booking and the staff were so nice accommodating despite the kitchen being almost closed. The food was excellent and they made a wonderful snack for our 15 month old daughter. We can't wait to come back.

Both the food and location here are stunning. My partner got a pan fried salmon special which was hands down one of the most delicious salmon dishes I have ever had. I had a seafood platter which was delicious but unfortunately was not worth the €24.50 hence the 4 stars. Everything else was perfect

The food is top class. Lots of choice of fresh fish. The specials are worth a look. The location by the harbour is perfect even on a wet day. All the food awards are well deserved. Reasonable prices but not cheep. We didn't book but in summer I'm sure you would need to. It is a must visit.

The best seafood I've had anywhere! Staff are all very friendly and attentive. Ask for a window seat and enjoy a delicious meal overlooking the ocean.

This was a great place to have a meal with friends that we hadn't seen for over 10 years. They were down from Dublin and were really impressed with the setting. The meal was superb. We had the three courses and mainly went for the fish option as starter/main. All the main specials were seafood. Each course was excellent. the... More

The moonlit sea at the pier in Barna is the perfect setting for a special meal or just a casual bite. Our problem was deciding what to eat as we could gave happily eaten everything on the menu. Monkfish with teriyaki, oysters and scallops were our eventual choice and they were so beautifully cooked and tasty I wish we could... More

My wife and I ate here on a Monday night in mid February . We were seated in a very cosy little room which was full of character. The amuse bouche of duck carpaccio we got was a delightful surprise. We then feasted on oysters, monkfish, hake to name but a few. Everything was cooked perfectly and seasoned very well,... More

This is a gorgeous quaint little restaurant in Barna, that is well worth visiting. What a lovely atmosphere, we visited for lunch which was served downstairs overlooking the Pier. They have more space upstairs for evening meals and it too is gorgeous. No point in having the place, if the food does not match, but no problem here as our... More
