Fodor's Expert Review The Cottage Restaurant
A refreshing blend of European and Asian-influenced food with a friendly Leitrim flourish makes this whitewashed restaurant in the tiny village of Jamestown, just 4 km (2½ miles) from Carrick-on-Shannon, an extremely popular evening venue. Situated across from the river, some diners arrive straight from the quayside to sample dishes such as Thai-style beef carpaccio, spiced monkfish with lemongrass, or Tandoori-style quail with plum and onion chutney. The Cottage—with a traditional half-door entrance—is also renowned for the range of the Malaysian born chef-owner Shamzuri Hanifa's exotic spices, sauces and dips; many feature his special balsamic jelly, chilli and coconut prawn bisque, acar pickle, or sundried tomato paste and basil pesto.
