Summary

“It has to the best restaurant in Northern Ireland by a long stretch!”; this “old harbourmaster's building at the marina”“owned and run by two Dutch brothers” – has been sensitively restored, and wins the highest esteem for its “understated” and “professional” approach, and its “eclectic” cuisine “taking a serious approach to the use of organic local produce”; “interesting wine at really good prices” too and a well-stocked gin bar. Top Tip – “great-value tasting menu”.
