Our Latest Great Place To Eat - The Strand Cahore

Friday 02 February 2024

With a long history, spanning more than 80 years, the Hanley family took the reins back in 2018 and The Strand Cahore has gone from strength to strength since then. Perched up above the pier at Cahore point and the safe swimming beach, it’s a perfect spot for families, couples and indeed as a space for weddings and corporate events.

The menus here are a celebration of fresh and local ingredients, with superb seafood as you might expect given its location. The a la carte menu is divided into small plates and mains, which I love, as you can go ‘old-fashioned’ with a starter and mains or try out several dishes in trendy tapas fashion.

Small plates here include dishes such as fresh prawns with Gubeen chorizo and samphire in chilli and garlic oil served with some crusty sourdough; Richie Doyle beef cheek croquettes with a smoky wood sauce; or fish cakes in a golden crumb with tossed leaves, pickled cucumber and lemon aioli. Spicy chicken wings with a homemade blue cheese dip are sure to please, as are chargrilled bruschetta with heirloom tomatoes, basil pesto and garlic oil.

They do fab wood fired pizzas as mains as well, with a delicious range to choose from such as local Macamore buffalo sausage; organic chicken and homemade basil pesto; or maybe Serrano ham and pineapple. All pizzas can be made in child friendly portions as well.
