Cafe recommendation Portumna

Just to recommend the Modena restaurant in Portumna.
Three of us sailed to Portumna CH yesterday Saturday June 22 on a friend's yacht.
We arrived after 1:30 so immediately walked into town for lunch.
Unfortunately we turned right when leaving the park and walked anticlockwise round the town seeing nowhere to eat - many of the pubs were shuttered up and none of those open served food.
Finally we spotted a sign for the Modena Restaurant (only a few 100 metres from the Park entrance) and decided to try it.
We all three had an excellent steak sandwich with salad & chips for €10 each.
Excellent value & quality.

We ate our lunches in the small courtyard at the back of the restaurant which was perfectly sheltered on a sunny but windy day.

Highly recommended, we'll be back.

I can second this recommendation.

Their Indian food is also excellent.
