Been from Mayo I always love coming
home to visit my family. Every time I’m home I come to see Frankie in An Port Mór. The restaurant is located in Westport across from Matt Molloys pub. http://www.anportmor.com Frankie has won several awards and most recently just won ‘Best Chef and Restaurant” in Connacht, in this year’s food and wine awards.
We arrived for dinner on a lovely summer evening. Greeted by very friendly staff and shown to our table. We were starving and looking forward to some local honest food. We were given the menus and as usual I had loads of questions. I really feel confident ordering in a restaurant where the service staff have a good knowledge of the menu. My queries were answered with confidence and our order was taken.
I decided to order the Achill Island Smoked Fish Board, wild Irish tuna, peppered mackerel, honey roast Salmon, served with a selection of house chutneys. I couldn’t believe my eyes when it arrived. A feast fit for a king. I loved every element of this dish. The peppered mackerel was to die for.
The restaurant was buzzing and a full house on a Tuesday night. I was getting very excited about my main course. Frankie was preparing something off the menu for me. I was been spoiled.
When I received (pictured above) my main course, I was like a child with ice cream. I couldnt wait to pick up my cutlery. Wild Atlantic Salmon with Lobster. Sides of fresh Baby potatoes and in season greens. I really was beginning to feel like I was sitting on Keel beach in Achill.
No room for dessert we were given this lovely jello shots. A nice touch at the end of the meal.
Frankie and his wife Olivia really have a very special restaurant here in Westport. The menu has lots to offer for everyone from Pig Cheeks to Ribeye Steaks. However they pride themselves on local fresh seafood.
