Went here on a Saturday night in January. Pretty much every place to eat in Dingle was closed, and it was my birthday so wanted to go somewhere nice. So we went here. The staff were fine, not ultra friendly, but it was very busy so they needed to be efficient..which they were! Fair play for them for keeping things... More

The duck confit with a rhubarb sauce was brilliant. Local filet of beef was huge (too big!) and cooked perfectly. Highly recommend this place! One note: if you don't want more carrots and potatoes than are already on your plate, ask your waitperson to hold off on the huge extra portion that arrives with your entrees.

Well this place had been 'talked up' but it didn't disappoint. An amazing starter of seafood platter served on a dumb waiter was spectacular - served with exquisite freshly baked soda bread and washed down with fabulous wine. The main course of turbot was heavenly. It was simply too good for words GO THERE!

It's gone a bit downhill. We were disappointed with this place. I usually have the lobster thermidoor but didn't feel like it so went for something else. My partners dish was also disappointing and very much on the bland side. Just not good enough for the price!

I continue to rave about this restaurant. I have had some of my best meals ever here. Their duo of pan fried fish is to die for. The restaurant is always packed so booking is a must. The atmosphere is great.

My husband and I had an evening meal here yesterday and would highly recommend it not only was the food extremely flavoursome but present with a lovely flower garnish.The early bird menu is superb value for money and it has one of the best choices I have seen anywhere.
