We tried the mackerel pate, Carrot and Coconut soup, Curry and Chicken pasta. All were excellent. We were packed a bit too tightly at the table however and were a bit too close to the door for comfort (it was raining too, as expected in Dingle).

Super spot for a light breakfast. Very tasty food and nice staff. Good selection of pancakes, eggs, etc., so something to suit all tastes.

After two weeks of traveling thru Scotland and Ireland, my husband and I were craving a steak! We were delighted to see a filet on the Goat Street menu. The meat was divine and served with creative veggies, much different than our other culinary experiences and a welcome treat. The service was perfect, we enjoyed ourselves very much! The house...

We booked to make sure of a table, which i advise. The service was welcoming and friendly. The menu had a good choice and all our meals were cooked fresh and served without any long wait. Good value for money and well worth a visit

We were lucky enough to park just up the street from The Goat Cafe and the badges on the outside lured us in. This little restaurant offered us a totally delicious seafood chowder. Fresh cordials were enjoyed. There is an upstairs so do not retreat if the area inside looks packed.Its a little haven. Good value

First visit to Dingle. The Bistro offered an interesting menu and specials board. Both my wife and myself could have eaten most of the choices on the menu and we were pleased with our eventual choices. Well presented and served accompanied by an excellent bottle of wine. Very relaxed atmosphere with a good location to bars and entertainment in the... More

The welcoming bright red door and cosy seating coupled with good quality unpretentious food makes this a winner in my books. As this is Dingle, expect sea-food, but the menu does cater for all tastes. For starters my partner had a creamy chowder that wouldn't go amiss on the other side of the pond while I enjoyed some local goats... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner here during our visit. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious with lots of fresh ingredients in the salads. The prawn curry came with a surprise of added calamari that was some of the tenderness I have had.
