I loved this restaurant. It definitely stands out as my favourite meal during my three weeks in Ireland. I loved that everything was so fresh, wholesome, hearty and delicious. They specifically advertise that they do not serve chips which is great because it shows how they stand out from the norm and want to focus on the seafood - not... More

Enjoyed dinner here during a visit to Dingle in July. I had Lemon Sole while my friend had Lobster. The seafood was excellent, fresh and perfectly cooked. The only criticism might be that both dishes were overly garnished with various vegetables. It appeared that all dishes we saw came with the same multi-veg/garnish? I felt that something a little less... More

Had to sit outside, fully booked inside. Clearblue sky and a great view of the harbour though. Nice fish, of course! No surprise, recommended in the Michelin guide 2014.

I may live on the gulf coast of Texas, but I never realized fish could taste so good! The fish we ordered was delicious and unlike anything I've had at home. I wish there were an OOTB closer to home! I recommend getting a reservation... this is a sought after dinner spot.

As you would expect from the name, this is a seafood house, with wonderful local choices. We had a potato crusted pollock and a haddock sauteed in garlic. Out of this world.

This has to be not only the best seafood restaurant in all of Ireland, but possibly in the whole world! The fresh seafood is perfectly prepared, served with wonderful sides, and all is mouth watering. Plus a nice selection of wines. BUT, as the sign on the restaurant says: NO, we do NOT have French Fries!!

We ordered the fish chowder, the tuna, the trio of crab and the mussels marinieres. The fish chowder was loaded with large chunks of salmon and white fish with wonderful fresh herbs in the savory broth. It was delicious! Best mussels we've had in a long, long time. The trio of crab was..... well let's just say I ate it... More

Our meal was very good, but our expectations were perhaps inflated. We would return, though, for more lobster.

We had very high expectations for this very popular restaurant on the harbour front. Their pitch of only fresh fish and seafood with no chips was very tempting. For starters my wife had the mussels. Which were beautiful, served in an amazing broth. I had the prawns which were nice but could have done with a few more. For mains... More
