Review on Paul Arthurs
The location in a village by the shores of Strangford Lough is charming enough, even though this up-and-coming neighbourhood restaurant occupies a site above a chippie and amusement arcade.
Paul Arthurs served his apprenticeship with some of the big names on the Northern Ireland restaurant scene and it shows not only in his culinary ιlan but also in the commitment to top-drawer local produce. Kircubbin Bay crab is wittily turned into a twenty-first century 'sandwich', Portaferry mussels are cooked the old way with shallots, white wine and garlic, while peppered haunch of venison might appear with glazed red onions and champ.
Elsewhere, the kitchen spreads its wings for fresh ravioli with Gorgonzola, parsley and Parmesan, pan-fried chicken fillet with girolles, roast garlic and pancetta or honey-roast loin of pork with ginger and shiitake mushrooms. Cheeses are 100% Irish and the line up of no-frills desserts could include hot chocolate pudding or banana crθme brϋlιe. The global wine list is concise, fairly priced and in-vogue.
