Greatness comes in small packages!

A tiny restaurant tucked in the main drag of Dingle and promising only the freshest seafood available. And that's all they do - seafood - but don't go into OOTB looking for fish and chips you won't find that on the menu. My dinner started with a cup of steaming hot lobster bisque which was smooth... read more

We had two meals here during our stay in Dingle. We chose different meals each time and the quality of the fish and presentation of the dishes was perfect. An extensive menu available each evening from a large chalk board. Good service and lovely staff.

From the outside it looks like a shed or a garage so we almost walked by. Inside its very cosy and nice with friendly and helpful service. We had the sea-bass which was excellent, the best food and wine we had in Ireland. A bit pricey but highly recommended.

One of the best coastal dinners ever. We had the mix of locally caught fish and scallops with assorted garnishes and grilled potatoes.

Did a 2 week tour of Ireland and ate seafood almost all the time. This small restaurant was a stand out -- it was the best dinner of our trip. The place is small and was quite busy for mid week so I would definitely recommend reservations.

Fabulous fresh fish cuisine. Main menu cahanges with fish landed in market day by day. Great service. Informal atmosphere. Costs some dosh but worth it.

Small restaurant, reservation needed, even on a quiet Tuesday night. Had a wonderful duo of sea bass and halibut as part of their early bird menu. Highly recommend!

Very good food and service. Seafood was fresh with lots of flavor in the sauces without being overly salted or swimming in butter. All seafood was locally caught. Waitresses made suggestions in choosing items but were not aggressive. Would definitely go again.

The sign on the door tells you all you need to know. No chips, no burgers, no microwaves, nothing frozen. If you are looking for a typical fish and chip shop then go next door but you will be missing a real treat. Fresh fish and seafood cooked just the way it should be to maximise taste. The fish soup...
