A good friend, after his first meal at Sage in Westport, wrote that chef-proprietor Shteryo Yurukov "really seems to have found his feet / spread his wings".
A new team has instilled fresh life into this attractive restaurant, since chef Shteryo Yurukov and front of house partner Eva Ivanova took on the ownership in 2013.
My husband and I made reservations here on a whim one night and I'm glad we did!
I'm gluten free as I have celiac, and I had got glutened the... read more previous night at another restaurant, so I cautiously went into this restaurant. Thankfully the waiter was extremely kind and asked the cooking staff any questions I had. I ended up having an excellent meal, as did my non-gf husband. I had a chicken dish and finished off the night with a gluten free dessert.
The service was excellent and all the tables were full when we got here, always a sign to me that it's a yummy place!
I highly suggest eating here!
This is a wonderful restaurant with interesting dishes from a real chef & good service. The simmered beef cheeks might've fallen apart with a mild breeze they were so tender.... read more The wine list is quite interesting too. I highly recommend.
The most delicious meal I've ever had in my life. We kind of stumbled into here too after doing a ton of driving, so it was a very welcomed surprise.... read more My mom's fish was cooked to perfection! The beer selection was a little small, but the food was incredible.
Sage you took our breath away! Such a surprise to find this 100% neighborhood Gem in the tiny town of Westport in north western Ireland. It was so fantastic, that... read more we dined here both nights of our two night stay! It's such a cozy ambience and you must have a reservation as they only serve dinner and the dining room is small. The menu features local specialty foraged produce and sustainable seafood and meats. It is seasonal and changes as to what is in season and available. Everything is fresh beyond belief and so very creative. Such a talented chef! They have A varied menu with offerings for gluten-free and vegetarian diets. Both nights we started with appetizers, followed by a delicious soup. We had one of the best salads and beautifully constructed I might add that I have ever eaten, it was a delicate layering of baby lettuces, goat cheese, nuts, berries, Parmesan crisps, herbs, edible fresh flowers and a hard boiled quails egg...amazing! We also had a wonderful seafood linguine, their fish special (Turbot) and a lamb entree. The featured pink
Gin elderberry Gin & Tonic cocktail with fresh berries was outstanding! They also have a great wine list with some stars from Croatia I think, that our knowledgeable waiter suggested by the glass and they were so good and paired beautifully with our meals. Everything we tried was 5 stars!
Wow!! How lucky were we to find this place and it was right across from our Air BnB. Along with great food, we had the best service from Patricia. She... read more was lovely and really enhanced our dining experience. In our party we had the Lamb, Ribeye, Cod and Surf and Turf along with the Oysters and the Aran Island Goat cheese. Amazing all the way around. We had dessert but I would probably skip as not a big fan of the pannacotta and the chocolate mousse. I also have a problem with a restaurant saying that the wine they are charging 39 euro for is a 2014 when in fact it was a 2017 - there should be a reduction in price.
Other than that , Patricia was the best and we really enjoyed our meal. Would definitely recommend and return.
Visited Monday evening at 7p.m.; busy. Pondered the menu after receiving suggestions, then ordered. A bread board with 3 small breads plus olives was presented; tasty. We had the lamb... read more and the crab & chicken salad. Both were very good. Treated at the end with schnapps and 4 dessert tastes. Bill, including a wine and a beer, totaled 44$. Glad we went.
Sage was such a lucky find for us ! We had no idea this place was here or that it would be so good. The plating and flavors attention to... read more detail was on point ! Highly recommend
Smart to get a reservation as it is quite booked. The fish special was simply grilled and tasty. Portions are on the small size, but they do provide a small... read more bread and olive plate at the start of the meal and a couple of cookies and a schnapps at the end of the meal. Salad starter was fresh and interesting with a combination of lettuces, plums, pomegranate seeds, couscous and a light dressing, nicely done. Desserts were very good as well.
