We visited here on a bank holiday Monday evening. Downstairs was very busy so we went straight upstairs where we were greeted and seated by a lovely waitress. The menu has plenty of choice. To start we had the Barbecue Spare Ribs and the Smoked Salmon Ravioli. The ribs were tender, meaty and very tasty. The ravioli were delicious and I really enjoyed them. For mains we had fillet and rib-eye steak and these came with chips and salad. The steaks were perfectly cooked, my fillet was definitely larger than 5oz and the chips to go with them were really nice and we couldn't stop eating them. The bill including a glass or wine and a pint came to €61 which I thought was excellent value for what we'd eaten. I would have no problem coming back.

Went here with 4 others Saturday night and were left waiting for 2 hours to get a table having it continously promised.A rude reception from a manager who told off staff and rudely told us when finally seated they couldnt give us food at that table his staff had made a mistake.When we finally recieved food in the restaurant and we ordered drinks we were told to go downstairs and get them ourselves so although a restaurant that serves food in a ristricted area and await to be seated you then had to continously leave that area to get a drink and serve yourself.The long awaited food was acceptable but completely overpriced and a policy of go downstairs and fetch your own drink is unacceptable.Overall this was not a pleasant diningexperience from the atmosphere to the rude staff and expensive food. With such high prices one would expect much better service.One tip for here make a reservation the day before if you wish to go here but Im not sure how much of a difference it would make.Food okay everything else needs improvement.

I went here for lunch and had the New York Burger. One of the nicest burgers I have ever had anywhere in a very long time.

4 lovely creamy pints of Guinness were our first tast of The Bridge. We popped into the bar after a surf lesson to get some heat into ourselves. The place was lovely and clean with a nice traditional style. We asked the barman what time they were finishing food and since we only had a few minutes before the kitchen closed we put our order in with him and then headed off for a quick change of clothes for the evening. When we got back there was a table ready for us and the food arrived out promptly. We had 3 of the fish and chips and one of the bean burgers. The portions were huge with lovely chunky chips. Everything was really tasty and everyone really enjoyed their meals. Service was friendly and efficient and the food was well priced for what we had. It was quiet the evening we were in but I'd say this place would be great craic at the weekends when there would be a few more people around. Overall a really great spot which I will defineatly visit again on my next trip to Bundoran.
