Out To Lunch: Fish Trio Hits The Heights At Ballyroe

I’M cheating a bit this week as it’s an evening meal review, rather than a lunch.

I was covering a story at the hotel on Thursday night so I decided to have a have a bite to eat while I waited to do my job.

The hotel always sends in the specials of the day for our ‘Deals of the Day’ section of the website so I know they always have some great lunches on which remain on the menu right through to the evening.

It was a lovely sunny evening and I took a table in the bar next to the window. The hotel really is beautifully positioned on such days to capture the stunning views of Tralee Bay.

The menu is immense with every kind of sandwich, wrap, pasta, steaks, dessert, starter and main course to please any palate.

The specials were ‘roast stuffed loin of pork served with an Apple and Sage gravy (€12); Trio of Salmon, Cod and Smoked Haddock served with a White Wine and Dill Cream (€12);  Chicken Breast stuffed with black pudding wrapped in crispy bacon served with Black pepper sauce (€12) andSauté of Vegetables in a fruity Provencal sauce served on a bed of tagliatelle (€11)’.

At €12 the specials are a bit pricey but I held judgement on value until after the meal. I plumped for the fish  – because, well, I love fish – and enjoyed the view until I was served. It was quite busy in the bar too at that time (7pm), with many families enjoying their holidays.

The fish arrived and came with a sliver of the smoked haddock on top of the cod, which was embedded into the salmon. The cream sauce was really tasty and complimented the dish very well. The trio of fish were all good and it was a big portion too. It came with three scoops of mash with assorted carrots, green beans and parsnips.

It was a very good meal and despite the €12 tag is was worth it. A good cappuccino followed and then it was off to work. The bill came to €14.60.
