I had cod with cockles others had chicken, this was top notch. Service was excellent and a meal for 4 with wines and beer was 140 euro. It's a... More

My wife and I had dinner here recently and it can't be faulted. We both had steaks, which had plenty of taste, and the sides were all delicious. There is a great selection of local craft beer, and the staff are relaxed and friendly. Recommended if you're in Carlingford.

Ordered steak and chips . The chips tasted stale the steak wasn't left to rest and I had to use my napkin to mop up the blood and juices on the plate . There was a lot of noise with a hen party . But the young staff where really lovely and friendly .

This is the perfect spot for a lovely, romantic fine dining experience. Delicious food and beautiful presentation. Great wine menu. Very cozy atmosphere. Nice friendly staff. It's on the expensive side but the price is good for the quality of the overall dining experience. Highly recommend this spot for a nice couple's night out.

My wife and I visited one Sunday evening during our break in Carlingford and the Baytree definitely lived up to it's reputation. We had the 3 course menu and the quality and taste of the food was exceptional; I particularly loved the duck starter. The lady who served us was very friendly and the timing of the courses was perfect.... More

We were given the comfort of the back room all to ourselves and a huge table that we could all sit around. We were given a set menu which was excellent and great value for money. There was a fantastic... More

Although I did not have a meal in this restaurant during my stay in Carlingford, I wanted to take a moment to record an anecdote that I think speaks highly of The Baytree. I was planning to cook dinner for my extended family but neglected to bring the most important ingredient in a curry - the rice. I took a... More
