Fodor's Review

On Heir Island—a four-minute ferry ride—this unlikely venture is a pilgrimage spot for food lovers, who praise the high standard of cooking and the location. The five-course (no choices) set menu focuses on local produce, some of it picked in the wild on the island. Expect good, honest, unfussy food. The restaurant is country-casual and tables seat 10, so be prepared to share. Cape Clear turbot with sea spinach is typical; for dessert, you might have hot Grand Marnier crepe soufflé with black-currant coulis. The proprietors also operate "the world's smallest cooking school" here. Call for details about the ferry.
