The Quays

Owner and Executive Chef, Aaron Hanna has worked in The Quays from the first day the restaurant opened. When the opportunity arose for him and his partner Janine to take over the restaurant, it was a dream come true for them. Aaron employed his brother Mark Hanna as his Head Chef who has worked with some of the best chefs in Northern Ireland.

The Quays Restaurant is situated on the picturesque harbour of Portavogie in County Down with a breathtaking view across the Irish Sea to the Isle of Man.

Over the years they have built up a reputation for the freshest, finest seafood in County Down. Seasonal specialities at The Quays include crab claws, lobster, Dover sole, turbot and many other varieties of fresh fish caught by the local Portavogie boats.

The restaurant prides itself on its level of customer service and family-friendly atmosphere which keeps patrons coming back from as far away as Canada and the US.
