Recently visited Nick's on a cold, rainy night mid week and sat by the fire in an almost empty restaurant. Made to feel very welcome and had an excellent fish meal of scallops as a starter and fish as main course and excellent Californian Chardonnay. It was pricey but the chef knew what he/she was doing and thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Newly refurbished in a lovely style that feels warm and welcoming. Choice of a casual menu or a more sophisticated restaurant menu. Dining in the more casual bar area, but from the restaurant menu, there was a good choice of local produce dishes hitting all the right notes of provenance for this lovely region. Local scallops with Sneem black pudding.... More

What a lovely restaurant and such friendly happy staff. Trust me, the third week in March in NOT the height of the summer season but we were welcomed with smiles and happy efficient service and thoroughly enjoyed our meal, which was delicious. Part of our wonderful experience of the whole area. Thank you all.

I took my mother there for Mother's Day dinner. We were sat at a tiny table right next to the lobster tank. The place was empty, so we were a little confused on the chosen table. There was definitely a lack of welcoming hospitality. We asked 3 times for water and were not given bread. The desserts were horrible! The... More

I have been truly remiss in writing this review. Nick's Seafood Restaurant and Bar was all one could hope for in a romantic, fun, quaint atmosphere. We were staying the area and just happened upon Nick's and it simply invited us in, it seemed. We ended up spending hours there, much of it in the company of Anne and several... More
