If you love fish this is the place. They keep their shellfish in a tank so the oysters are super fresh. The fish was perfectly prepared. All was great!!

This has to be the best seafood in Dingle. It is a crowded and sometimes noisy place but the quality of the food is worth it. If you like seafood, this is the place to go.

As our host advised, it was very good fresh fish with healthy vegetables as sides, served in a crowded but trendy setting that surprisingly looks nicer inside than out.

This restaurant is only serving fresh locally caught seafood. The menu is a giant chalkboard and it changes everyday. The food is top notch, something you would find in a fine dining restaurant. The atmosphere is laid back and great for families or date night. Also great selection of wines. Highly recommend!!!

Out of the blue is down on the pier and is a very small restaurant and booking in advance is essential. The fish is fresh and will have come out of the water that morning. It is purely a fish restaurant so if it is battered fish and chips you are after this is not he place. A wonderful selection... More

Really nice atmosphere simple, very humble waitresses allways with a smile. A very interesting menu with only a few courses. The fish is clearly fresh and the chef is a master in getting the best flavors/texture of the fish. If you're in Dingle, enjoy the village and don't forget to go there for a meal is definitely you're best call... More
