We had heard a lot about this place and had read the reviews. Our expectations were therefore raised. The service was particularly slow with a large portion of the wine consumed before our orders were taken. The menu was indeed extensive and looked promising however the end product did not live up to expectations. Unfortunately rather average. We have eaten in a large number of fish restaurants around the world but this one is some way off the pace. Closer to home the Boat House on the island of Gigha and Cafe Fish in Tobermory are hugely better. Overall not worth the drive to Kircubbin.HiThanks for taking the time to leave a review which has left us all quite shocked!I would love to hear from you to confirm when you dined with us, what you had that was rather average, to discuss the service as it does not ring any bells with our manager or supervisors who do not remember any diners waiting any length of time more than usual to place an order, or any diners who consumed a large portion of wine while waiting, or when checked while dining if there was any problems/issues with their chosen dishes.I'm delighted you have eaten in a lot of restaurants around the world but to say we are off the pace is laughable, we are booked well in advance, we serve only fresh local ingredients, we will keep doing what we do and we do very well, obviously the other diners who leave a review on tripadvisor do not know what they are talking about!By recommending to people the Boat House on the Island of Gigha and Cafe Fish in Tobermory (closer to home HELLO) you could maybe supply the ferry to get the customers from Northern Ireland over to Scotland.I look forward to hearing from you, please ring me on 028427 38222.CheersLeigh

My husband and I visited this restaurant which is quite close to home, for the first time for Sunday lunch! We were not disappointed! The starters were delicious - mushrooms served very hot on an interesting plate resembling a garden! The prawns were lovely with Marie Rose sauce and green salad leaves. Excellent! The main courses were very generous. Beautifully cooked salmon with a delicious crust and pork fillet stack with peppercorn sauce and sweet potato crisps. These were accompanied with green vegetables which had a nice bite and two types of potato. We could not resist a desert and had pavlova and sticky toffee pudding both of which again were lovely. The coffee was newly ground and tasted just right! The bill for such a feast was not hard to pay! People of this area- try The Chestnut. The staff are very friendly and helpful. You will have a lovely meal and leave satisfied!

The best of international cooking using great local produce served with flair.
This is a real hidden gem. The food was the best food that i have had for ages. It is more expensive than other restaurants in the area, but dining here is a real experience. I strongly recommend for any foodies visiting the area. It is a smal restaurant, with a cosy feel to it. We had the 5 course tasting menu, and it was absolutely beautiful in every way, the food, the presentation and the service. I cannot fault the staff in any way, the service was absolutely perfect. I have been to many fine dining restaurants in my time, but few that can compare to this. It was great value for the quality of the food and service.I highly recommend this restaurant.
