    Food was very poor. We were sat at table took drinks order then proceeded to say no steak or market fish. None of the food was finished it was very poor. Nobody came near table for another drink. On paying nobody was asked was everything alright as they already know the answer but happy to overcharge for poor food. Oh and we didnt see no "private booth" it was a table with sea view.

    Hi Michelle, I am extremely sorry to hear this happening and very disappointed and upset that it happened. I have tried to contact the number you supplied on the reservation every day since but no answer. This is something that Very Very rarely happens here, if ever.. We pride our staff in being extremely pleasant and helpful and attending to all the customers needs for a enjoyable experience. Following on from this feedback I will be begetting ALL of my front of house staff trained professionally in a customer service in person course. I would like if it was possible for you to give me a call back, so we can possibly try make an arrangement for you to come back and let my staff prove how excellent they truly are. Thanks, Oisin.

    It’s my go-to place, the food is always excellent and the staff are always accommodating and friendly I would think of going anywhere else in town. The same goes for a drink at the bar for a glass of on warm summers evening outside.

    Food was excellent and well prepared. Quite a wait for it but as everything is cooked fresh well worth the wait. Not cheap but good value for the money. Ambiance was really good all in all a great place to eat,

    We went as a special treat for Valentine's and booked a table upstairs which had a lovely ambiance with balloons, flowers and chocolates with a special menu. The food was excellent and we were given a complimentary sample of soup and a shot at the end of the meal. Service was also very good. Keep up the good work!

    We had a lovely family meal in Maddens last night, this is not our first visit. We are on holiday from Belfast and every time we come to Bundoran we always like to get to Maddens. It's always a great experience, food and service was top class as it always is. Staff are always very friendly and on the ball. We would recommend the Dill Salmon & the traditional fish and chips, so good! The best pint of guiness in Bundoran also!! The atmosphere was perfect. Overall an excellent experience, we have even booked already for Easter.
