FACILITIES

Veggie options available Luscious Dublin Bay prawns, succulent oysters, melt in the mouth mussels, mouth-watering mackerel…just some of the delicious seafood you’ll find on menus around Ireland.

Irish people love to eat seafood when dining out; in fact, unlike our European neighbours, we eat more seafood outside the home. Perhaps this is a testament to the quality of our seafood restaurants. And for many visitors, a trip to Ireland wouldn’t be complete without sampling a few oysters and sinking a pint of the black stuff.

Despite the inauspicious location this is a real gem. The food was outstanding using only local ingredients.... local game to start, delicious Greencastle seafood medley for mains and a creme brulee for dessert. The staff were charming and their recommendations were good. I have no hesitation about recommending Harrys. A real surprise.

The food is outstanding as always but I was disappointed to see that the size of the portions have shrunk. The early bird is definitely the best value for money. Harry's as always - highly recommended.

Was impressed by the quality (not the quantity) of the food, the cosy atmosphere (in the bar) and the very kind service

AMAZING - What a meal! I love the idea that everything is locally sourced. The spiced ginger cake was devine but only for those with a sweet tooth. The waiters completely added to the great evening as well. Cant wait to go back!

I was in Harrys for an early bird on a Sunday evening, and the food was fabulous. I went for the vegetarian option which was chickpeas in a tomato sauce with summer veg (beetroot, courgette and radish). The veggies were gorgeous and there is such a difference in quality from the fact that they grow all their own. The side was potatoes dauphinoise, which were some of the nicest I've tasted. My partner had the steak with 'chip shop chips' (truly top notch for restaurant) and was raving about the quality of the beef. The service as ever was also excellent, with exceptionally friendly wait staff. €12 for a mains is frankly a steal given the quality of the food. If I'm in Donegal I always make a point of stopping in Harrys on my way, and will continue to do so.

This well known and widely recommended restaurant has a deserved reputation for the known provenance of its food. Given its location just over the border in Donegal, it must attract a considerable clientele from Derry city as well as the surrounding rural areas, and of courses visitors and those travelling in the area. The ambience of the combined pub and restaurant is modern and attractive. The staff are pleasant and well informed. Given its reputation, we decided to try the steak and had an 8oz filet (€26) and an 8oz sirloin (€21). Both were very good, the sirloin, perhaps not surprising, much more flavoursome than the filet. They were served with one side order of choice. We both chose french fries and also shared a vegetable side order (grown in the restaurant's own garden apparently). I would comment that neither were particularly plentiful and that the steaks outlasted both the fries and the vegetables. Together with two relatively small starters and two (inexpensive) drinks, the total came to over €65 before tip. Frankly, although the quality and presentation of the steaks was certainly good, I felt that overall it was not value for money. Apart from the steaks, portions were on the small side. Would we go back? If passing, maybe. Would we make a special journey (even just from Co.Derry)? Not necessarily. 11

Visited here on Mothers Day. Arrived after the main rush at 5 pm. Service was good until they forgot to give us the coffees we had ordered, but this is a minor thing. Food was really well priced and of a very good quality. They source all their food locally and this attention to local food is a breathe of fresh air, especially at the price. I would definitely go back if in the area again.

At last my return trip to Harrys. Would I be disappointed ? Definitely not. The lunch table was booked for 6 people - 9 of us turned up. Not a problem for Harry's staff - we were moved to a larger table within seconds. There's a lunch menu & chalk board specials. These can change quite quickly because once an item has sold out they switch to the next fresh item for example when we arrived the fish special was plaice but by the time we ordered, plaice had sold out and haddock had replaced it. I expect these sudden menu changes where restaurants genuinely cook fresh local produce. For starters, our table had white onion soup, thai fish cakes and I had squid with chilli and salt. Even after they had been sitting for a period during conversation, there was still no hint of rubber. They were cooked to perfect & the portion was huge. The soup & fish cakes were equally delicious I was told. For mains, 6 of us had sirloin steak -cooked from rare to very well done and each one came out perfectly cooked. Two had haddock - the dish came with a tomato sauce which was sharp and fresh - and the other requested a plain piece of haddock without sauce or garnish and it arrived precisely as ordered. The fish was delicious - hot, firm and melt in the mouth. We had requested a selection of vegetables and we got enough to feed 20. Boiled and garlic potatoes, salad, mushrooms, chips and the pearl in the selection - creamed cabbage and turnip. I hate turnip but this has converted me, No one had room for dessert so we had teas/coffees and the bill came to € 180. Fantastic value. A special mention for the two waitresses - they really know what excellent service is. If your idea of a good meal is a big feed, of dubious quality, piled high on your plate then this is not the place for you, but if you like quality food at a good price in a relaxed, unhurried environment, then Harry's is hard to beat.

I have read so much about this restaurant that I had to try it , so when I left my friend's house in nearby Derry and told him that I was going to Harry's he was surprise as he said that he was disappointed with it and when I said about all the great reviews that I had read about it in the papers he said that the owner was good at marketing it. so I had to judge it for myself. I started with the prawn cocktail@ €5 , It was very small and the sauce (marie- rose) lack flavor and was very watery ,so much so that it ran off the prawns and lay on the bottom of the glass. I then had the Seafood chowder , this came in a covered entree dish and was more of a cassoulet of seafood and not a soup, some of the fish was tough as it was cut from the flap of the top of the fish fillet, I finished with the apple crumble which I did enjoy but it was not the apple and berry crumble that was on the menu. I had the glass of house sauvignon blanc which was fine. Overall , I was disappointed and should have listened to my friend in Derry. I won't be back any time soon.

Harry's restaurant just across the border from Derry in Bridgend has won many restaurant prizes. The bar area is in need of re refurbishment with some ripped seats and grubby walls. The restaurant itself is fine and the food very good. They specialize in steaks and they don't disappoint .I always have the fillet steak and it is always cooked to perfection and of a very high quality .
