The Lookout Restaurant is situated upstairs over Jacob’s Bar enjoying spectacular views of Baltimore Bay & the Islands from its 25 foot panoramic window. The Jacob Family began serving their Breton style fair over 40 years ago in their famous Chez Youen Restaurant. That ethos continues today at The Lookout Restaurant where the traditional family recipes of 40 years past remain true to form. Simple, fresh, uncomplicated fruits of the sea. We also serve a small selection of meat options for those non seafood loving guests. The Lookout Seafood Restaurant (level 1 of the hotel) will not open in June as we have no outdoor dining space for this restaurant (the bar food area downstairs will be open outdoors (and indoors for residents)). We hope to get The Lookout up & running by middle of July. This is outdoor dining rules dependent and also staffing dependent. You are welcome to contact us to pencil in a provisional booking from mid July onwards. Hopefully all will be well.
Our aim in The Lookout Restaurant is to provide well produced uncomplicated seafood at reasonable prices in a relaxed environment. The style of food ranges from fresh fish of the day to our famous Seafood Platters which the Jacob family have been serving in their restaurants for over 40 years. We also have a range of meat options for non fish eaters and are happy to cater for medical dietary requirements by prior arrangement. The Lookout Restaurant is not recommended for children. We would encourage families to consider our bar food options.
