The Restaurant at Gormans Clifftop House and Restaurant

Glaise Bheag, Ballydavid
aaicon Restaurant %

The stone-built house perching on the clifftops above Smerwick harbour on the north-western tip of the Dingle Peninsula has been owned by the Gorman family since the 18th century, which might explain why chef-proprietor Vincent Gorman has a passion for sourcing as much as possible of his materials from the local farms and ports. Simplicity is the key to this delightful restaurant with rooms: there's nothing to get in the way of the dining room's sweeping views across the Atlantic, produce is spanking fresh and the concise menu offers five choices at each stage. You might start with locally smoked organic salmon served with a simple salad and horseradish cream, and follow with a hearty Kerry lamb stew with root vegetables and potatoes, or pan-fried hake fillet with roasted cherry tomatoes, lemon butter and fresh herbs. To finish, there could be mango parfait with passion fruit and mango syrup.
