Great lunch

Recommended by another restaurant and we weren't dissappointed. The chowder looked fab but we were eating shortly afterwards so had lighter options, really good and lovely staff. Will be back with an empty stomach

It truly is loaded with seafood. The seafood is caught daily and brought to the restaurants in the morning by theorist monger. In fact, all the ingredients are fresh daily. The chowder is similar to a New England clam chowder, but better because of the freshness and quantity of fish in the soup.

On our last visit to Dingle (March 2015) we stopped at the Chowder Cafe for lunch. So glad we did. The staff were professional, helpful, and friendly. Did not have to wait long for our orders to be taken nor did we have to wait long for the food to be brought to the table. The food was excellent in... More

I had the mini breakfast this morning, for €6.95. The price was great but the food was disappointing. Quality was sacrificed for cheapness, the sausages were small and skinny, the puddings were cut in half and the Orange juice was cheap stuff from a carton rather than freshly squeezed or 'not from concentrate'. Even the ketchup had been refilled with... More

I had the platter with seafood chowder, smoked salmon and fish n' chips, it was all great and very good value. There was a problem with one order in our party but they were so apologetic and eager to make it up that all is definitely forgiven and I'd go there again for sure.

We visited this Cafe having read the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. They have a varied menu with a good selection of soup/sandwiches and lots of nice goodies! All of the dishes, particularly the chowder were well received. The staff were friendly and helpful. A very pleasant lunch stop all round!

We came in cold and tired and were welcomed by a relaxed, warm, clean ambience and such friendly staff. A friend had a lovely seafood chowder and i had a mackerel main dish, which was one of the tastiest meals I've had in months! The portions were great, the presentation was excellent, and the fish was just sensational! We topped... More

Let no one say that a cafe cannot produce high quality food at reasonable price with friendly and efficient service. My sister decided we should experience a local lunch and liked the look of the cafe, we where so pleased with the salmon salad and delicious soda bread. Rounded off with a pot of steaming tea. Quiet simply a first... More

We were looking for somewhere to escape the rain but didn't want the full pub fare - Chowder offered an awesome option with delicious lighter options which hit the spot!
