An Evening at The Embassy

The Embassy

Yesterday meself and himself were invited along to The Embassy Steakhouse in Sligo for an evening of music and food. We’ve never eaten there so were really looking forward to it and it was a lovely chance to get our gladrags on.

Meself and Himself

When we arrived we were welcomed with a glass of Prosecco, it was lovely and cosy in the bar area and the TV screen showing a log fire is a great idea.

The staff were all really friendly and there was a great atmosphere in the place. Kieran Quinn was providing the music for the first part of the evening, he’s so talented – I’m looking forward to my piano lesson with him – but that’s for another blog.

We were seated at our table and given the menu. We were also given bread which came with a basil pesto and a tomato and chilli pesto, both were fab.

Now on to the food – and you will be hungry reading this! It was all fabulous, there’s nothing I can fault. The portion sizes were huge, the starters would easily have been big enough as a main course. All the food was cooked to perfection and the service was excellent.

For our starters Andy had the prawns and said they were delicious, I had the goats cheese which was served with a beetroot and walnut salad. For the main course Andy had the steak which came with two sauces, asparagus and chips. I had the chicken which was served on a bed of mash. We were also given mixed veg and new potatoes.  For dessert Andy had the chocolate brownie and I had the pear and almond tart, the pastry was melt in the mouth, really gorgeous. Both desserts were served with Fabio’s ice cream. Afterwards we were given coffee and Clo’s chocolates. It really was a feast and I think I left two stone heavier than when I arrived!

Kieran and Gerry

After dinner Gerry Grennan joined Kieran to play some songs. It rounded off a lovely evening perfectly.

If you are looking for a wonderful meal I’d highly recommend The Embassy Steakhouse. Sincere thanks to Kevin and all the staff for a lovely night. On a side note The Embassy was a Linen Hall when it was first built in 1799 – you can read more about that here. You’ll find The Embassy website here and their Facebook page here. Kieran Quinn is touring at the moment and you can find the tour dates here.

    Delighted you enjoyed visit to, and meal at, Embassy!
    Haven’t been for a few years, but standards don’t change there.
    Thanks for all the info, and the link. Ballymote was always noted for linen.
    Our house is actually built on the site of millers’ cottages, there was a line of them along the passageway between our house and present hotel. Its site was still a bakery when I was a child! 3 bakeries in Ballymote back then!
    How time changes!
    Here’s to your next visit to The Embassy!
