Well this week I turned the ripe old age of 34!!
Hubby had booked us a table at Harbour & Company in Donaghadee. We had never been before so we were looking forward to trying somewhere new.
When we arrived the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We went in through the bar area initially as we were unsure of where we were going, they were able to check and see that our table upstairs was ready for us. So we headed on up to be greeted with another very friendly and attentive staff member.
We got seated near the kitchen and bar area. The kitchen was open for all to see. I liked being able to watch the chef cooking the food. There is something comforting about being able to see whats going on.
We started with some wine. I am not a massive drinker anymore but it was my birthday so why not. Two small glasses of house merlot. I wouldn't drink anymore than one glass anymore just with the medication I am on.
We deliberated over the starters trying to decide whether to go for something seafood or not. In the end we decided to share two starters. Thomas chose the Chillied Prawns and I chose the Mussels. The Prawns were huge and had a nice amount of chilli. The mussels were in a tomato based soup which was as delicious as the mussels. The portions were definitely enough for sharing.
Then it was time for our steaks. As you can see there is a massive difference between the two ribeyes we got. Thomas had seen the 18oz bone in Ribeye on a friends facebook and decided thats what he wanted. I knew that there was no way I would make it through anything close to that, especially not if I wanted a dessert. So I went for a 10oz. It was delicious. So juicy and tender. We both get our steaks medium. I like a bit of pink to my beef. This was cooked perfectly. I judge a steak on whether or not you can eat it and not need to use the sauce it comes with. If the steak is done right then the flavour of the meat is enough and you don't need to add any sauce. We chose peppercorn sauce, it was not needed but was just a nice bonus flavour. I actually didnt use very much except for dipping my chips in to. We went for sweet potato fries and garlic potato cubes as our sides. We just popped them in the middle and dipped in to each.
They have some specials on different evenings, check out below to see pics of the menu.
