About The Cottage Restaurant

Located on the main road into Jamestown Village, Co. Leitrim. The Cottage Restaurant nestles into a scenic quiet spot by the river and Weir, with parking on the road. The traditional half door entrance to the restaurant, leads into a bright, contemporary dining space. Though nestled in a quite location, The Cottage Restaurant is anything but that. With a reputation for excellence, great taste and the friendliest customer service, it’s no wonder that this little gem which is just 5 miles from Carrick on Shannon, is known not just locally or nationally but globally!
Our menu here at The Cottage Restaurant changes regularly depending on what fabulous fresh and local produce is available but no matter what is being served we guarantee a fusion Asian, Irish feast that won’t disappoint.
Shamzuri (Sham) Hanifa, a native of Malaysia, moved to Ireland over 18 years ago seeking new opportunities and experiences. Steeped in a tradition and love of the freshest foods and inspired by his Grandmother’s flavoursome cooking, Sham started his culinary career at 12! He has worked his way up through every stage of the catering world, from kitchen porter to head chef. At the age of 20, his whirlwind Irish adventure began in leading restaurants in the West of Ireland. Little did he know then, that he would spent the next 18 years here, meet and marry an Irish girl, start a family, before settling in Jamestown in 2008 to open his own restaurant, the acclaimed The Cottage Restaurant.

Pure perfection. Didn't think it was possible but the food might actually have been even better than the last time we visited. 6 stars out of 5.

Four of us had Sunday Lunch which was very nice. We plan to go there one evening when the full menu is available so that we can enjoy the greater range of dishes, which always attracts very positive comments.

Wonderful dinning experience as always. Friendly and attentive staff. Hope you will consider bringing back the Earlybird Menu in the near future even with price inctease which would be well justified and still be very popular and enable more frequent visits.

Absolutely amazing epicural experience. Top class in everything. Excellent food, excellent customer service, excellent vibe, excellent homely restaurant with lovely interior and decor. Only minuscule downside is that they only had one choice of craft beer, but that is nitpicking. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful setting , lovely people both serving and cooking . Starters amazing . Two issues with the mains : Pork was dry - it was ok - but only ok. Beef steak was not as succulent as it might have been - consider replacing the sirloin with fillet . The other two beef portions on the place were sublime . Overall a great experience- would recommend
