AWARDS & PRIZES

We seek out the best establishments in every part of Ireland for inclusion in our guides and, because we work independently and without charging a fee, you know that we can be trusted to lead you to the best places over a wide range of categories. Good Food Ireland is an industry driven food tourism organisation which was established in November 2006. Many good food operators in a cross-section of establishments all around the island from restaurants to accommodation, pubs to food shops to cookery schools wanted to be recognised and endorsed for their commitment to using Irish, local and artisan food produce. They wanted to share experiences and be cooperatively marketed to the domestic and international tourist. Agriculture and Tourism, two vital economies for Ireland have so much in common and are yet so far apart. Through Good Food Ireland the industry from both these sectors share a common belief and come together as one. Good Food Ireland brings you the visitor or domestic consumer what we believe is the only way to get a true taste of Ireland. The Taste of Ireland Recommended award is bestowed on exceptional eateries by Paolo Tullio - Ireland's Leading food and wine writer. All the restaurants included have been independently reviewed.

We had a voucher for the early bird. The staff where friendly and helpful. The food was nice, menu was ok for an early bird and there was decent amount of choice. The view is amazing and this carries the restaurant as the rest of the decor seems a bit dated. Overall the experience was good although I probably wouldn't rush back

Superb seaview restaurant. It really feels like you are above the sea. Nice and clean design, nice staff and ok food. Nothing special but still worth going for the view.

Attended a dinner for almost 20 people to celebrate a birthday and the staff were prompt and helpful, the food was great and the view and atmosphere is terrific. The bar area is a great feature for a group as you all meet there before being seated and a nice place for a chat after.

Booked a table for 2 for our 20th wedding anniversary and stated this on the booking. Was really disappointed . Atmosphere was buzzing but certainly not what I wanted for wedding anniversary dinner. Also we were seated beside exit door (which was fine) but it is used by smokers to go onto balcony to smoke. One smoker used this door 4 times during out meal which really ruined the experience. Can't imagine what it would have been like if more than one smoker used it.There was no where else to sit us so we did not complain but I would def not go here for a romantic meal. Food good, waiter excellent, loud and would suggest not allowing customers to use fire exit door for smoking. Customers should go outside instead and not disturb other diners.

The view was stunning and the service and reception pleasant the food was a little disappointing, the calamarie was tough and stringy and the beans and broccoli were so under cooked as to be inedible I could not get a knife through the broccoli, Whatever was on top of the tuna was inedible too the rest was fairly ordinary Thank you it was a nice evening

Out with friends on a busy Friday night at sundown. Wonderful views and a friendly welcome.. All good so far.. For a restaurant in this price category I expected the pleasure to continue with the food.. The food. Hmmm. perfectly cooked but disappointing. No creativity, no fine cuisine, now wow and miserly portions... The night wasn't a total disaster as the atmosphere was good, lovely views and the company was great..
