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.

Ate here after not getting into Ida's as we were too late - thrilled we didn't as it looked cold and in inviting. Bright lights and uncleared tables ??? Anyway - the half door was amazing. Great lamb and Duck with smokies to die for! Waiter was lovely too - great chats ! Head straight for this restaurant !

Went there with 8 others after the Dingle Half Marathon! This is a charming restaurant with an exciting varied menu with an emphasis on seafood as you would expect! We were there for the early bird which was great value - three courses for €29.50. Everyone enjoyed. Melon starter was truly fabulous! Had hake for main - delicious! Nice touch... More
