great food!

I've been to Dingle many times, and have visited many of the restaurants there, and I can honestly say this is by far the best one there. Fabulous food! can't wait to return

I enjoyed a delicious New Year meal here with a group of friends on the last night they were open before their winter break. The food was excellent with obvious care given to the sourcing and preparation of each dish. There was much oohing and aaahing from all as each plate arrived. Everything was excellent and all worth tasting! There... More

Had dinner here in December. It's a lovely cosy restaurant which is often quite busy so recommend making a reservation. The evening we dined was quiet with it being a Sunday night. The trio of Dingle bay crab starter (Crab parfait, bisque shot, crabmeat and apple salad, Dingle Gin and cucumber pickle, seaweed cracker) was beautifully presented and matched by... More

Had dinner on New Years night. My word, this restaurant is seriously good. The creativity, coupled with using local fresh seafood was fantastic. The staff were attentive and genuine without being over the top. We had a very relaxed meal on the last night of this restaurant before they were closing for a seasonal break. I'm so glad we were...

Passed a miserable evening in this lovely restaurant. Superb food, beautifully presented with ultra friendly staff. Much of the herbs and vegetables are home grown by the restaurateurs
