I’ll be honest…I was extremely skeptical when McKay made a booking at Mrs.Top based on a coworkers recommendation. I couldn’t find any reviews on the place and their website really says nothing about the restaurant. But I was EXTREMELY pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Mrs.Top during our Easter weekend Mollymook trip.
Walking into Mrs. Top is like walking into your grandmother’s house. If your grandmother is a really great cook and invites lots of other strangers over. You literally walk through the kitchen of this little B&B before arriving at the little 5 table dining room. You’re greeted with a complimentary glass of Sherry by a lovely woman, who I never confirmed, but would like to think is Mrs. Top herself.
What we ate:
- Warm bread rolls with butter to start
- The Stuffed Prawn starter and the Duck Ragu (which could have been a main course – it was huge)
- Mains were Beef Cheeks and John Dory with Prawns served with side vegatables
- Dessert was Bananas Brennan and Warm Chocolate Pudding
While not the same level of culinary elegance as nearby hatted restaurant Rick Stein’s at Bannisters…Mrs. Top serves up its own level of home-cooked charm.
- Make your booking in advance (there are only 5 tables…remember?)
- It’s BYO!
- It’s cash only.
