Excellent seafood platter

Family friendly restaurant overlooking the harbour. Seafood platters were fantastic and well worth the €22 per person. Cup of chowder which was delicious, crab claws, bowl of muscles, calamari, battered fish, chips and wheaten bread all served on a wooden board. We ordered a platter each but would... read more

Family friendly restaurant overlooking the harbour. Seafood platters were fantastic and well worth the €22 per person. Cup of chowder which was delicious, crab claws, bowl of muscles, calamari, battered fish, chips and wheaten bread all served on a wooden board. We ordered a platter each but would have been ample for 2 to share!

I had the pleasure of eating twice at this restaurant and both dinners were very good. the chocolate cake was to die for. It was so fudgy and moist. the cook outdid themselves with that cake. I would recommend this restaurant highly. It was centrally located, reasonably priced and looked over the harbor with a pleasant view.

Really memorable meal-- great atmosphere, gourmet food at good prices. Smoke salmon on brown bread was divine. Husband enjoyed his chicken wrap, too. Highly recommend!

On a nice sunny day no better place to have lunch in Dingle. Good for families with kids. Good food at decent prices.

Although the restaurant was recommended by a local, we found the food to be uninspired and the wait staff woefully unprepared to answer questions about the menu. The setting was decent, but I would choose a different restaurant in the future.

Outside tables on the deck, on glassed in patio or inside for any weather. Classic Irish seafood, very fresh and casual.

Great views of Dingle from the conservatory. Lunch was nice and chef was very accomodating to change an item on the menu for us. The crab claws were nice but not very hpt when they came out. The burger was at a regular standard. The staff were all very pleasant but as we were eating one waitress was sweeping up... More

Ate here with my partner on a Tuesday evening.. It was a short wait for our food which was great. Deliciously prepared seafood. I had John Dory and he had a trio of crab dishes. The only negative comments would be that the wine was terrible ( but the waitress had no problem swapping the glass for a decent drink... More

Visited this restaurant with a number of friends while in Dingle ...ordered Cod and Shrimp...good dinner although expecting more from a restaurant near the water in an area where fish is plentiful. The staff were attentive and helpful with orders and went out of their way to help. A very pleasant evening....
