This was an absolutely wonderful seafood restaurant which richly deserves all it's awards and accolades. With signs outside " nothing frozen" and "no chips" this restaurant lived up to its promise. With only the freshest of seafood, local vegetables and creative cooking this was the best food we enjoyed in Ireland. The restaurant had a wonderful ambience and great service.... More

Several travelers we stopped on the street in Dingle recommended OOTB. We knew from the location (harbor side) and reputation that we must try to get in. We arrived early and were able to get in before the dinner seating. Menu presented on portable chalkboard -- only the freshest seafood, with a nice daily selection. I had the triple combo... More

Went here with family during a trip to Ireland and I was so impressed by this restaurant. I had heard it had good reviews but hadn't done a ton of research on it as it was selected by someone else in our party but man was it good. I had a potato crusted haddock which was one of the more... More

Fresh fish, great service and good value for what we got. The restaurant is small so you have to book and on some days accept the time they offer. If you book long enough ahead, this is no problem.

This is THE place for fresh, delicious seafood and fish in Dingle. We absolutely fell in love with Dingle and the surrounding area and wish we had had more than meal here. Get here early or make a reservation so you don't miss out. The oysters are a great way to start off your meal. Definitely a must-visit! For more... More

Traveling with our friends from New York they suggested this place recommended in their guide book. A small and busy looking cafe - the fish was delicious. As it was lunchtime we did not have starters or puddings but the chargrilled place, cod, halibut and mussels were all excellent. Given the simple surroundings the food was expensive Service was friendly... More

But anyway, someone recommend it this little extremely blue restaurant called out of the blue, but for some reason in our mind it was called "The Shack", maybe because it looks like a... More

Prices are comparable to other highend seafood restaurants. Fish is absolutely the freshest available. We had a party of nine and several persons who enjoy fine dining stated that it was the best seafood they have ever had. Hard to argue. Wonderful in all aspects. Small dining room so reservations are a must.

I had been recommended this place so was very happy when I managed to get a reservation here. However the day got way on us and we needed to push our time back, there was no issue with them taking us an hour later even though it was a busy Saturday night. It looks nothing from the outside but goes... More
