We were advised to go there by a local shop nearby. We started with appetizers that really were pretty out there but tasty. Dinner arrived and we were impressed with the presentation. But once we began to savour our meals we all became quite disappointed. Perhaps we're just not into that type of fish...Hake has a tremendous amount of scales.... More

They have great food and great service. We went in on a busy night but our hotel was able to reserve a table for us. It's also across the street from Foxy John's, one of the best pubs in Dingle.

Great food well served. We went for the 'early bird ' menu..A little pricey for the quantity received. Even had to pay extra for additional potatoes. Nevertheless an interesting experience. House wine was expensive. Still peckish when I left.

Ok, this place was recommended to us by a local. The menu has options for seafood and meat lovers and the place seems to pride itself on its unique menu. It's on the upscale dining side of the spectrum in Dingle. After 10 or so minutes a waiter came by to take our drink and food order. The apps arrived... More

Ate here with family recently. Had the goats cheese to start and although tasty enough there was nothing really to the dish when it came to flavour and it most definitely lacked texture. Had the hake with crab claws for mains. Hake was nice enough but crab claws were very dry and my leek was very tough. Desserts were very... More

Very fancy place to go with your girlfriend and impress. I had the best starter in my life. The atmophere is defenitly for impress, and the waiter was very polite. I've tried the seafood and I have to say is was the best option, this chef make miracles... for me the starter was enough to make me want to return.

we chose from the early bird menu which is available all night. I had the bisque and the John Dory, both of which I really enjoyed. First time having John Dory (a whitefish). My wife had the trio of crab to start and the lemon sole and indicated both were excellent! Service was extremely good and it was a great... More
