Our B&B recommended this tiny cafe. (I think they only serve lunch?). The fish was excellent. We really enjoyed it!

Had dinner here with a friend - early bird- so €22.95 for 2 courses or €27.95 for 3 courses. Wonderful menu with delicious starters. Was tempted by the tomato soup, but finally went with the goat cheese & chorizo salad. Yum !!!!!! The bread was delicious also (especially seed bread). I had chicken stuffed with black pudding, with potato &... More

Had lunch here, catered well for vegetarian, gluten free & child. Able to order half portion for child & tweak the things out he didn't like :) Tomato soup was delicious, as goats cheese salad. Food fresh, healthy and perhaps most importantly tasty! good coffee & quick service.

Had one of the best dinners in a long time at The Goat Street Café yesterday evening. Have to say was a little sceptical when my friend suggested it as I always viewed it as a nice spot for coffee and a pastry, however, dinner well exceeded my expectations. The food was simply the best - fresh, fresh, fresh ...... More

Dingle is a food lover's dream. Recently, and unsurprisingly, awarded the 'Top Foodie Town of Ireland 2014', this town hosts an abundance of restaurants to satiate all appetites. My favourite of late is the 'Goat Street Bistro'. A quick glance of the menu, and it was love at first bite. It was a menu to suit all tastes. My partner... More

Great place for lunch. Wonderful savory tart, great salads, pasta and fish dishes. Everything is organic. We ate here twice during our stay at Dingle. The staff is very helpful.

I've been lucky enough to eat at Goat Street Bistro (was known as Goat Street Cafe) several times over the past 4 years and it's still one of my favourites in a town where one is spoilt for choice with dining options. Food is full of great flavours, generous portions, and reasonably priced; fresh fish a speciality. If mackerel is... More

We arrived just before they closed for the afternoon at 4 pm. Instead of getting the rolling eyes most restaurants give those that sneak in just before close, we were welcomed to a nice table and served a delicious, refreshing, healthy meal with very nice service. The server asked about our experience in Dingle, offered some suggestions and even got... More

Up on the top of Main Street, this little restaurant could be missed given the greater number down by the harbor. My wife and I decided to try it for lunch. We were so pleased, that we returned for dinner that evening. We chatted it up with the waitress who had emigrated from the Czech Republic 15 years earlier. The... More

Wondered in here for a lunch after wondering in to one or two "tourist trap" restaurants first, We were delighted to find helpful staff, and also locals eating there which is always a good sign. Food did not disappoint, we even considered going back for dinner but it was too busy.
