It was difficult to get a free table there but it was worth waiting. It's a small place but with great homely atmosphere. I and my cousin shared fish and chips and two cakes- a big piece of sponge cake with fresh home-made cream and a small but rich in flavour peach tart with chocolate and meringue. The tea was...

The chowder is full of bits of seafood and served with two mussels in shells on the top. Delicious grilled salmon dish and interesting smoked salmon with Brie. Good salads and chips. Cash only, good service.

We had brunch/ lunch here several times this week during our stay in Dingle. Great food at very reasonable prices. The chowder is fantastic. Great notice boards about specials & contents of chowder, food allergens etc . They don't take cards but you really can't fault this place. It will be our first port of call when we return to...

Delightful cafe serving a range of fish & meat dishes. We ate here lunch time & shared a plentiful fish platter which include a (not so) mini Fish & Chips, a cup of Chowder & an open sandwich of Smoked Salmon. Everything was freshly cooked and the plate was cleared......Great value for money and lovely food.

We spotted the tripadvisor sticker on the window and decided to go in.We got a table immediately and a lovely waitress looked after us. This is mainly a fish restaurant so three of us ordered fish dished while junior has toasted sandwiches. There was a small wait while everything was prepared and it was well worth it. All the meals... More

This is a place with great food, simple seating and a lot of heart. We came in from a blustery, cool day after walking around Dingle town and enjoyed a bowl of seafood chowder with brown bread. Food heaven. Chowder was recommended by our Brownes B&B hosts.
