Donegal's Edge Restaurant Receives Second AA Rosette

The Redcastle Hotel & Spa of Co. Donegal is celebrating their second AA Rosette Award for The Edge Restaurant.

The Rosette scheme has long been established and recognises cooking at different levels nationwide. The success or failure in achieving Rosettes is based on an onsite AA Hospitality inspection of a hotel or restaurant.

Commenting on The Edge Restaurant, the AA Hospitality inspector said, “My visit to The Edge was a pleasure, revealing a fine balance between formality and friendliness. For Rosette Awards, it is the food that is key. I particularly enjoyed the fact that so much of the menu is based on quality produce from the region, cooked with care and flair. All of the dishes were very accurately cooked, with great fresh flavours. Indeed, it was difficult to choose from the well compiled menu, featuring so much of what is best in the larder that is the north-west.”

Meanwhile, Gordon Smyth, head chef of Redcastle Hotel & Spa, asserted, “It is an honour to receive a second AA Rosette for The Edge Restaurant. The award reflects the skills and diligence that myself and my team dedicate towards making every meal that we make to the highest standard.

“We will continue to follow the golden standard which the AA sets for restaurants across the UK and Ireland, and I aim to innovate and invent new dishes in the future to create a memorable experience for our diners’ visit.”
