Forty minutes after we had ordered, and with three other tables of customers who had arrived after us receiving their orders (with mussels), we asked when we... More

We were visiting Dingle for three nights and had planned to have lunch here for one of our meals. The view was beautiful and we wound up having to come back again for lunch the next day because we enjoyed our meal so much. Probably the best fish and chips I have ever had, and the crab claws were outstanding.... More

After a long day of driving and touring in the rain, this restaurant was perfect --warm, inviting, and great food. Loved my fish'n chips with a pot of tea, but others opted for the local brew.

We had a very good lunch here after touring the Dingle Peninsula. Nice and bright with good menu, including grilled catch of the day.

As a coeliac it's hard to explain what a delight it is to have Gluten free Fish and chips and the portion was huge, so big I took a piece home and re-heated it later on and it tasted just as nice after a few pints in O'Sullivans.

We walked around Dingle and wanted to have dinner on the bay. This is really the only place on the bay which was a surprise. We really picked it for the view but found out we could have picked it for the ambiance, décor, service and the food at a moderate price. We started out with on order of mussels... More
