A really special place. Great staff, very welcoming ambiance. The wine was great(Savionion Blanc). I had the most amazing starter. A trio of crab. Mouthwatering now just thinking about it, lemon sole main, again flawless. Profiteroles for dessert. So much detail in every element of all dishes very memorable and special. Early bird menu very extensive and great value 👌... More

Invited here recently to celebrate a special occasion. Sadly this restaurant has passed its 'best by' date. Operating on a reputation earned in better times. Now mediocre and frequently poor service complements its mediocre and frequently poor food offering. Disappointing food quality, tepid temperatures and small portions. Insensitive staff and an arrogant floor manager resulted in an appalling meal experience.... More

We booked a table prior to our arrival in Dingle and were so glad that we did. 8pm was the only time available and the restaurant was packed. Nevertheless, the service was efficient and helpful. We both chose seafood dishes which were perfectly cooked with delicious sauces and a good selection of vegetable. We would highly recommend this restaurant to... More

We made reservations for a Monday...a night when many other Dingle restaurants are closed! This is a wonderful place to eat local food with an updated twist. We had the lamb trio, duck, and the Hake. Hake is my new favorite fish, the taste is mild and flakey but unfortunately hard to find in South Carolina.

This is high end dining at its best. The crab starter and the scallops dish with the local chorizo were sublime. The service is also excellent. It's very efficient but also really friendly. Although it's at the higher price range of restaurants in Dingle, it's definitely worth it.

Arrogant manager who thinks he is doing you a favour by giving you a reservation. Ducasse need not worry! The food is overly manipulated with cheap ingredients posing as their more expensive relations. Surely foam has had its day? The food was served luke warm with many items, including the Lamb and the Pollock being over cooked. Desserts were juvenile... More

We have visited this restaurant over many years when on holiday in the Dingle area and it has been consistently excellent. The menu and cooking here are superb and the service outstanding. The pricing of the menu is good value considering the calibre of the food. While the menu is not very suitable for young children, the staff are happy... More
