Fantastic find in Westport

We dined here last week. I reserved a few days ahead and we were treated to an expertly cooked 3-course meal. Although Lyn, the owner/chef, explained that she had a very busy week of catering and was pretty tired, on what could have been a night off for her she went out of her way to prepare, cook and serve single-handed a delicious dinner for us, using the freshest of vegetables and herbs and cooking our fillet steaks to perfection. The accompanying wine she recommended was first-class. We really appreciated the attention to detail. Lyn has a great attitude towards food and has thought deeply about combinations, appropriateness for the occasion, health aspects and presentation. The ambience is delightful, and the 60s music hit the right spot for us and our fellow diners. The bill was very reasonable for such wonderful cuisine. We can’t wait to return!

Lovely superb

If you are after Talleys crumbed Hoki chips and cabbage coleslaw there are lots of places in Westport that serve that kind of food and get rave reviews????!!! This is great food cooked fresh with amazing flavors with love from a hard working American lady and not a cabbage in sight.Dont eat here if you are in a rush. Lynne cooks fresh while you sup away on a lovely wine. Her prices are reasonable and worth the wait. Lynne we loved our evening.

Great Restaurant in Westport

We walked past this restaurant and saw it was open so went in. We were greeted by the owner who made us very welcome. Ordered a beer and then our meals. The food was superb I had the steak and my wife had the fish. As my wife said I wish we were staying another night in Westport so we could come back. Thank you for the service and the outstanding food

book ahead, let them know you've taken a seat outside or they won't know you're there

Lyn cooks all meals from scratch, and really cares about what she serves. Those two things take time. Westport is lucky to have a true cusine venue - although given this is an off-season business for her - it is wise to check in ahead 1. for open restaurant 2. for tables. I'm only here because two nights ago we dined in (and we were lucky we booked at lunchtime for dinner at 7.15...) and I was Googling to see if I could pinch the recipe for the most amazing chocoloate dessert (20 mins oven time - don't expect anything out of the microwave here) and saw some guy grizzling because he didn't get a table after sidling in unannounced he was informed they were full. Sorry buddy but being a travel writer only gets you the perks when anyone actually cares what you do. This is possibly the nicest owner/chef (solo in the kitchen with one waitress who is also very busy) I have ever been lucky enough to meet, and for the record I've been turned away and missed out there too - but that's no reason to get all self-entitled about it and start running someone down just because YOU didn't like being told they were full for the night. Oh, the food is pretty damn nice too - wouldn't change Yellow House for quids!!!

Lyn shouts her friends an evening of lovely food and drink

Just when I thought the food and companionship couldn't get better when dining out Lyn, owner of the Yellow House Cafe and Restaurant, out does herself. She shouted a number of us an evening of tapas and starters, drinks and dessert at no charge just to say thank-you for our support during the past summer. OMG, the artichoke dip, stuffed mushrooms and salmon cakes were absolutely delicious followed by her famous carrot cake with ice-cream. The food was fantastic and so were the people I met and stories they shared about their lives and world travels. When in Westport treat yourself to a special type of dining and knock on Lyn's door for a warm welcome and delicious, tasty food made with local ingredients. You won't be disappointed!

Lovely Grub!

What a lovely, relaxing evening we had dining al fresco in the gardens of this eatery! The owner/chef bent over backwards to accommodate every dietary ideocycracy of her guests. Vegetarians and vegans can be confident of being served a delicious meal designed to accommodate their specific taste. And, itnis not expensive!
