We returned to this venue after the Summer season to find that the level of quality experienced before still exists in all areas. Superb food creatively presented in an atmospheric dining area attended to by friendly efficient staff.

I was treated here for my birthday tonight we had the meal of a lifetime! We ordered from the set menu which was incredibly reasonable considering the food that was to come. The waitress was very invoked grave about food pairings with local beers and wines. The plate was like an artists canvas and the food is 5 star quality.... More

After reading rave reviews on trip advisor we had to book a table..hands down the best meal I had in dingle. We had the 3 course early bird and enjoyed every plate of food and didn't leave a morsel. I wish this restaurant was in Dublin I would become a regular. No hesitation in a 5star review.

If you want well presented and food that is in season this restaurant has it all in our opinion it probably the best in the town which has quite a number of excellent restaurants. We had fish for our main course and the john dory was excellent as was the dover sole.

We had the early bird 3 course menu- food was delicious and great value- the staff were very friendly and the service was first class. We were served a selection of home made bread - one brown which was sweet and light and a sourdough which was tasty and cheesy. My partner had the trio of dingle bay crab and... More

We ate as a party of 6 with 2 young children, I was a little concerned about the children eating there as it was fine dining and fancy menu options. I needn't have worried, the kitchen was entirely accommodating and brought two small cottage pies that were devoured! I had a delicious lobster and potato cake starter, followed by sole... More

Very busy small restaurant and just about managed to get an early bird booking- 6pm to 745pm. Set men price is €27.50 per person for 2 courses and €31 for 3 courses. There is an A la Carte menu and what looked like a very interesting tasting menu at €50 per person. Considering it is Dingle it is not surprising... More
