This was date night I mentioned here,The Tavern in Murrisk, Co Mayo.
This was a bit of a drive for me but I happened to be in that neck of the woods and decided to try it out.
We arrived to a warm and inviting room with a bar and tables set around it in a modern country style.
We helped our selves to a booth at the back of the bar. There were 4 of us and the booth was perfect, all dark wood,a tartan material and dark leather.The bar is made of glass which leaves no part of the restaurant dark.
|This gives you an idea of the interior, lovely!|
We were delighted with the curry menu that we decided to order from it.
We ordered Kormas and Chicken Tikka Masala, medium. All I can say is WOW. When the food arrived we were so surprised at the huge plates and hungry that there wasn't a peep out of any of us while we ate, well for about 5 minutes then the oohhh and ahhh started.
|Tikka Masala, pity the poppadom fell over|
All came on one plate, a bowl of curry, some rice, flat bread, poppadom, chutney and yogurt.
We had desert, I am such a desert person. Menu said all deserts made by chief,lovely and the lovely waitress advised that the Lemon Meringue Pie was just made, sold I was and ordered it.

After a couple of glasses of wine it was time to go.
The atmosphere in this restaurant is lovely and relaxed. I lies at the foot of Croagh Patrick Mountain, the perfect setting for a wonder restaurant. I will be revisiting!!
The food very tasty, served beautifully,hot and very keenly priced. 4 currys were €40, service was brisk and friendly event though we were waiting on our chips, atmostphere was lovely and relaxed and was a lovely warm temperature, very welcoming and clean!
If your in this part of the world, you must visit The Tavern for a Friday night Curry!! and I am sure other food delights....I spied a beautiful platter of oysters flying past me....yum
