About The Restaurant

If you’re off exploring the Wild Atlantic Way and in search of repast, then the Ramblers Bar & Restaurant is a perfect port of call. Located in the scenic town of Ardara in Co. Donegal, this delightful restaurant is a part of the much loved Nesbitt Arms Boutique Hotel, right in centre of town.

Downstairs, there is a casual bar/lounge feel with the old Irish style meeting the modern world by way of Farrow and Ball style paintwork and polished wood floors. Its warm, spacious, and more to the point, welcoming. A perfect spot for lunch and couple of drinks. However, for a more formal affair, in the evening head for their upstairs restaurant for some fantastic upmarket food.

On our visit, starters included a gluten free prawn ‘martini’, a chicken Caesar salad as well a cream of local veg soup. There was a Galia melon fruit cocktail and mixed fresh fruit, and also some twice baked ciabatta, but I was in the mood for their homemade local seafood chowder, which was rich and creamy and all that you could want in a good chowder. Himself went for the golden brie with the tasty cheese coated in a homemade breadcrumb and served alongside a cranberry compote.

For the mains, there was lots to choose from, with all tastes being catered for. There were burgers and sandwiches, with options like a handcrafted 7oz Irish steak burger, a southern fried chicken sandwich or their CBC (chicken, bacon & cheese) burger ready and waiting for the carnivores, along with some great sounding beef dishes like a 10oz sirloin or prime Irish roast beef. Fishy fans were well covered to with dishes like a roast fillet of Atlantic salmon or poached smoked haddock. They also offer a selection of pastas and curries, including homemade beef lasagne, pasta carbonara or a homemade chicken curry. Himself quite fancied their chicken dishes, however, and opted for a pan-seared chicken escalope beautifully prepared with his choice of pepper sauce and a side of tasty hand-cut chips plus veg. I, on the other hand, was interested in trying their signature surf and turf of prime Irish 6oz sirloin steak with grilled tiger prawns which was absolutely delicious in garlic butter with my own side of hand cut chips as well as some mouth watering beer-battered French fried onions, some of which quickly made their way across the table.

Feeling more than satisfied, we passed on a delicious sounding selection of sweet treats in favour of an Espresso for me and a small whiskey for himself.

They also offer an excellent lunch menu at Ramblers Bar & Restaurant with signature sambos like their ‘Ace of Clubs’ triple decker or their crispy chicken wrap, as well as an open Atlantic prawn salad sandwich, not to metion their Farmers Brunch with sausage, bacon, fried egg, grilled ham, with homemade brown bread and a side of hand cut chips.

So, whether you’re staying in Ardara, or passing through on your Wild Atlantic way, make sure to stop for a meal at the Ramblers Bar & Restaurant.
