The New Oar Restaurant in Doolin.
Style and Quality on the Plate
The Oar Restaurant in Doolin, opened just a few months back, is fast making a reputation for itself as a stylish and quality dining venue. Good to see too that supporting local, including Clare craft beer, is a priority here.
Took the opportunity to check it out recently and it was a delight from start to finish. Some great choices here, even if the menu is not the longest. Quite a choice of drinks available , including a longish wine list that covers most bases, though we concentrated on the beers by Western Herd from Ennis.
The dining room is beautifully designed and decorated, very comfortable seating, good space between the tables and the welcome and service is friendly and politely attentive. If you want somewhere special to eat in the evening when visiting the many local attractions, including the Doolin Cave, the Burren, the islands, and of course the Cliffs of Moher, then put this on your shortlist.
King Prawn and Crab Fritter with carrot and cardamon purée
St Tola’s Goat cheese, with pickled beetroot, apple and hazelnut
Spiced Rump of Lamb comes with celery, feta and pomegranate
Herb Crusted Cod fillet in a tomato and basil fondue is cooked to perfection. With buttered asparagus.
