Wonderful family dinner.

We had an outstanding dinner at Nick's. We ordered from the bar menu and the "early bird" menu. There were 7 of us and everyone loved their meals. Dessert was excellent and beautifully presented.

Had a birthday celebration in Nicks at the weekend and what a wonderful evening! From the moment our group entered, we were warmly welcomed by John. We chose the early bird menu, which has an amazing selection and such great value. The food was sublime, beautifully presented and the portions were perfectly sized. John and other members of staff came... More

I loved Nicks - the food was great and atmosphere was amazing with the stunning live pianist. I did however find the value disappointing. My poor friend ordered the scampi special after a full day climbing and found the for 27 euros - he only got 6 small pieces. It was beautiful but be prepared to spend big.

We found this restaurant driving from Dingle back to Waterville & were very pleased we decided to stop off & give it a try. The service was impeccable, detailed descriptions of the dishes were given, the food was piping hot & beautifully presented. The complimentary bread selection was delicious (who knew bread flavoured with smoked bacon would taste so nice?),... More

What can I say, from seeing the Restaurant from the street to leaving later, it was a very satisfying experience. The greeting was warm, friendly and effecient and the service throughout was friendly and professional. The decor is clean and fresh and modern. The ambience created by the staff and unobtrusive music helped make the evening unforgettable. The food was... More

We dropped in to Nick's for dinner on Sunday and were in time for the very reasonably priced Early Bird menu. We started with a selection of breads (brown, white, pizza) which were excellent, the brown in particular being a highlight of the meal - lots of tastes of fruit and nuts. We did get worried that we might have... More

Elegant and friendly was my first impression at Nicks. I later learned there had been a fire, and the restaurant was completely renovated. We ordered from the daily speciasl, beginning with just-caught calamari. It was presented as artwork! Delicious. We then ordered the oysters-on-the-halfshell, Nicks special seafood plate, and a scallop/black sausage dish. All three were fresh, local and heavenly!... More

Highly reccommend Nick's restaurant if you value a warm welcome, delicious seasonal choice of local produce, enjoyed in a plush, modern establishment. John & his team combine the art of mannerly service with a detailed knowledge of both the varied menu & extensive wine list. This family-run establishment has a genuine desire to make each guest's visit special.
