Review on D'Arcy's Oyster Bar & Grill
A converted bank painted bright green is the setting for John and Georgina Keating's likeable seafood bar and restaurant. Local oysters are the stars of the show: they are farmed in nearby Cromane and appear in several fascinating guises. Try them 'au naturel' with Bloody Mary granité, have them steamed and served with young rhubarb, or explore them pickled with soft-boiled quail's egg, pancetta and herb salad.
The kitchen also spreads its wings for escabèche of sea bream, beetroot tartare and basil purée, poached brill with parsley mash and Sauternes sauce or salmon with caramelised chicory, carrot purée and citrus sauce. A couple of meat dishes are also available (rump of lamb with hazelnut couscous, ratatouille and tapenade, for example), while desserts keep it simple with crème brûlée or glazed lemon tart.
D'Arcy's also offers accommodation, with seven pleasantly appointed guest bedrooms available for those who want to stay over.
