Good home cooking

Dinner was good but not fantastic, yes home-made, yes freshly made and no doubt made with love but for the price, I expected a lot more and at a higher standard. Customer service is part of the experience of dinning out for me and I found the service a little disorganised and scattered. The staff... read more

Nice restaurant but have to say the three meals (plus one kiddies) represented very poor value. 7.50 for a baby bowl of vegetarian pasta is about as poor value as I've ever encountered. 20 for vegetarian curry seemed very overpriced as did 6.50 for a small glass of wine. When I ordered a beer I was brought a Hefeweisen which... More

The food is good but at 20 euro for a veg curry or veg bake I have to say this is way over priced. If it had been better value I would recommend this restaurant but these prices are crazy for what we got. The place was empty when we were there and this was a Saturday evening in June.... More

I can't remember eating better vegetarian meals anywhere. Delicious, substantial and beautiful. After superb soups, the main courses came with salads as well as perfectly prepared vegetables; spices, herbs and flavourings were very special.

Truly homemade with the best ingredients available all served with generosity and friendliness. This restaurant is at the beginning road on the Dingle Peninsula on the way to Inch beach and affords lovely views of organ in gardens at their best.

Stopped here for afternoon tea on a glorious sunny September day, today. Don't expect a manicured garden. It is lovely in it's own natural way. The eating area indoors is unique in a quirky way, with it's colourful décor and holistic atmosphere. We sat outside in the sunshine. The selection of open sandwiches was lovely and beautifully presented. The flavours... More

By far one of the best restaurants in the area! I was so impressed that I had to come home with a cookbook!! Well worth the visit to Inch Beach!

I was really surprised by the food that they make. I had read something but I didn't know that it is just like we eat at home :) Gluten free, whit Soya products... (quinoa, agave... I LOVE!) I am curious for some good recipes for us to make gluten free bread! And I was wondering how you make your porridge.... More

Myself and three friends stopped here for a meal on a rainy bank holiday, August 2014. We thought the decor was beautiful and quirky and the atmosphere relaxed and friendly. All the food was delicious and I think the early bird 3-course menu for 20 euro is very reasonable. I had a warm bean salad to start, the Phoenix bake... More
