Daft Eddy’s Sunday Lunch Menu

Went to Daft Eddy’s Restaurant with in-laws and ate from Sunday set lunch menu, relatively good value 3 courses for £17.95.

For starters, hers was a courgette and Parmesan soup (which was good) and mine was a “Parisienne of melon with blood orange sorbet” — which was just a glass of melon balls with a small spoonful of already melted sorbet — not an encouraging start.

Thankfully the mains were better. Our roasted legs of lamb were good quality and cooked well.

Yet the desserts were probably the best course of the meal, once they arrived (long wait). I was impressed with quality and presentation of my mini pecan pie, and her lemon tart was perfectly made.

This being a Sunday lunch, the place was packed and I knew all staff would be running off their feet. The service was good, but could have been better. Our primary waiter has decades of experience, and he was polite and cordial. But general communications between the tables and kitchen needs to improve and/or kitchen management.

Based on today’s experience, I can’t give Eddy’s a 4-star rating. But we all enjoyed our meal and especially a walk around the small island on the private trail afterwards, which offered spectacular views of Strangford Lough and surrounds.

Particularly enjoyed watching two donkeys groom each other:
