Lovely food, great little spot

Lovely little restaurant with a nice selection on the menu. If you're into your craft beers there is quite the selection. The food was very tasty and the service was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Our B&B hosts were spot-on with their recommendation to dine at An Canteen for a special meal during our too-short stay in Dingle. Down a side street from the tourist core of the town, An Canteen's dining room is small, maybe 10 tables, serviced by friendly front-of-house folks (including one of the two brothers who run the place) and manned...

I went there with my boyfriend for my birthday and the meal was delicious! I ordered steak then had a nice dessert and a cup of coffee(really great coffee though) We were very tired and hungry after hiking so the meal was very full filling! Definitely recommend it!

We had a most enjoyable and delicious meal at An Canteen in Dingle. We had the best bruschetta I ever had, and our salmon dinners were terrific. The service was unusually good; when my husband asked for a recommendation as to a good beer, the waitress brought the owner over to discuss the various beer options.

A nice spot to relax, have some drinks and listen to some good music. Try it out, and see for yourself!

Wonderful family run (2 brothers) business where you get great food in a comfortable setting with personal service. And food to price one of the best in Dingle. We spent 3 nights in Dingle and ate here 2 nights so that tells how much we liked it!

The 16 hour braised beef is out of this world. The second time we went (within a few days) J had that again and I had the salmon - equally delicious. The service is really friendly and we enjoyed our visits here.

The food was truly home-cooking, coupled with good wine and excellent service. It is a small place with "farm to table" orientation. I had the lamb shank and it was excellent. The total bill was 76 Euros. The previous night we paid 99 Euros for a meal that was not near as good. I highly recommend An Canteen.
