Slightly off the main high street, this place is WELL WORTH a visit. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. Then there is the food - WOW!!! My wife and I shared a starter of chicken wings which I thought were amazing, my wife thought they were a little spicy, but she was wrong. I then had a... More

We loved this restaurant! Food was excellent- started with scallops- highly recommend! My husband got the beef roast- best he has ever had! Great selection of beer. Owner even came out to talk to us and offered us a rare bottle of beer not on the menu. If we go back to dingle we are going here again!!

Having previously eaten here last May we decided to book again after running the Dingle Half Marathon. Firstly last May was superb. This time the brothers have stepped it up another notch. The mussels were outstanding the pork belly main fantastic. Attention to detail was faultless; we didn't have to ask for anything the service just happened faultlessly around us.... More

The quality and taste of the food here is outstanding and so is the service. Its well worth a visit you must try the scallops, mussells and beef or lamb if unsure..book if you can as it gets very busy..

It's not often I disagree with trip advisor recommendations. Positives: prompt polite service. Negative: overpriced in our opinion, overcooked breaded calimari and frozen chips, not too great at all.. Very uncomfortable seating. Food average overall. We were disappointed and underwhelmed unfortunately.

Food was exceptional, absolutley loved it. Was a little bit cramped and as a large party, we were a little self conscious that we were disturbing the couple next to us (and then we overheard the woman giving out about us...!!) Otherwise a great evening!

Maybe we didn't order well or maybe we were spoiled by outstanding experiences at two nearby restaurants, but we weren't blown away by An Canteen. The high point was hake, simply prepared and perfectly cooked. A salad of bacon, butternut squash, and greens sounded like a good idea but didn't come together. Good fresh vegetables. The room is not especially... More

We have visited Dingle each year for the past few years but only ate at this restaurant for the first time the other day. We were not disappointed. The food was superb and reasonably priced. We will definitely be back again.

Amazing food, very reasonably priced for the top quality food we were served. We were stuffed after out starter and main but couldn't resist the rhubarb and orange crumble which was to die for. Great staff. Highly recommended on your trip to dingle. We will definitely be back.
