I love Chowder Cafe and have eaten there many times! I always look forward to eating here, great specials always on display and a tasty lunch menu too! Really good open and club sandwiches!! Always very clean and staff extremely efficient and friendly! If you are looking for good fresh food, go to Chowder!

Likely we've been in this cafe for lunch. At the beginning It was just for a cafe, but then we've seen the plate and they look really delicious!!! We ate the soup, salmon and mackerel, both really well cook and good! We suggest also the homemade dessert!

The chowder was the best I ever had, packed with local, fresh seafood in heavenly creamy base. Excellent service and good value, too. Convenient location near the water and shopping area.

My husband and I checked out a few reviews on Trip Advisor re restaurants in Dingle. Chowder Cafe lived up to our expectations. My smoked salmon open sandwich with cucumber pickle was out of this world. My hubby had mussels with curry sauce he was a happy camper. Lovely staff , value for money and great food!!

The best chowder ive ever tasted - it seems everyone knows it as its very busy so get there before the lunch time rush - or you can even get it to go - if you have to wait for a table its worth the wait you wont be disappointed.

If you want some great food and some local flare... This is the place. It is cosy but the food is great and we would go back in a second!

We got the recommendation to go to Chowder for lunch by our B&B owner who frequents this restaurant at least once a week... so we trusted his recommendation. We were not disappointed. They have daily specials and a very nice menu. We both got something off the specials board. My husband had a crab sandwich and I had a chicken... More

Wonderful fresh fish of the day - only serve what is caught that day. Very small couple run restaurant, so reservations are a much. A great gourmet meal.
