We visited this restaurant on recommendation by both Tripadvisor and the owner of the B&B where we were staying. While the menu is not extensive,the food was delicious, atmosphere lovely and the service excellent. Well worth a visit!

This restaurant doesn't rate the top billing for Westport. The food was good not excellent. The decor consisted of knick knacks everywhere. Was a casual place to eat. My dinner consisted of 2/3 of a plate of potatoes. There are better restaurants in Westport.
