Team Jordan takes pole position - again! We visited on Holy Thursday evening last and while it wasn't the last supper it was certainly the last word! From start to finish the food was superb and for that quality was very reasonably priced. Service was timed to perfection and both chef and maitre d' connected as appropriate to enhance our enjoyment of each course. I highly recommend the Oystercatcher Bistro for that intimate occasion and suffice it to say that such occasions will occur more often thereafter!

Amazing food. We had the black pudding and smoked salmon risotto to start. Fab! Then we had the cataplana (absolutely fabulous) and the ribs. Then chocolate mousse to finish. One of the nicest meals we've ever had!

We went here on nye for dinner. There was a 5 course set menu for €45. We were given a glass of prosecco on arrival which was a nice touch. There was a huge amount of food but I stayed with seafood and fish so was just about able to manage it. I had prawns and crab claws to start which were amazingly fresh, we had veg soup for the next course and I had sea bass in a dill cream sauce for the main which again was just right. For desert I managed to squeeze in a slice of honeycomb cheese cake which was gorgeous. The service was good and friendly considering the one main person serving the tables was quite busy. The wines were all reduced so we had a lovely italian malbec for around €15. All in all, it was a lovely meal and I would definitely eat there when I'm in Carlingford again.

Small, clean and central. Friendly staff. The decor is lovely - understated and minimal, giving the place a bright and airy feel, despite the small size. Service was fine, and the food very tasty. I had the grilled goats cheese to start - nicely presented with a small salad and a beetroot mash. John Dory for the main course, with a light covering of sauce. Accompanied by cheese potatoes, cabbage and turnip. Glass of house white poured with a generous hand! Could do with nice coffee selection. Would go again without hesitation.
