Lovely honest and good value

This family fun bistro serves regular food. My family and I had fish and chips which was very good and good value. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Their lemon meringue is homemade and exceptional, I am told. We will definitely return.

We got there on a Sunday afternoon, around 2.30. They had been very busy with the hordes of coaches and we had to wait for a table. So perhaps they should be forgiven for not having time to cook the chips properly, tasteless fish and generally being below par. However I assume the Seafood chowder was a standard recipe and...

We were on our scenic drive around the Ring of Kerry. Sneem is a quaint little town where a lot of the tour buses stop to let out their patrons for a little food and shopping. With that said the restaurants in Sneem get a lot of waves of customers. Riverside is a small little bistro right on the river.... More

This is a decent pitstop to refuel when travelling around the ring if you're stopping to explore the picturesque village of Sneem. We had a 10-month old with us and the staff were very accommodating; they brought him a nice high-chair and a bowl of vegetable soup and mash, which he wolfed down. Thanks folks!

On our return route we decided we would return to the cafe for lunch. I had the open topped prawn sandwich which was very tasty, th rest... More

Our tour bus only stopped for 45mins in Seem . We both enjoyed a great prawn salad with soda bread. Friendly service. We wished we could have stayed longer for dessert as the cakes and lemon meringue tart look soo good.

An early start to miss the tourist buses travelling anti-clockwise from Killarney this was the first breakfast place we found. Full Irish was only 7 euros and offered good size portions. Nice sized room and ok service. Would recommend

My wife and I had lunch here on 5-5-2015, the food was good, but a young girl came to clean the table we chose to sit at. She certinly was never told how to clean a table as she just wiped the debris down on our laps, and the rest onto the floor. She proceded to clean other tables in... More

We were here last summer - I'm organizing photos finally ): I had a turkey and dressing sandwich which was ok - hubby had a sad looking hamburger - will post pictures - We sat in a narrow hallway type area by the outside doors which wasn't real relaxing - on the route to the bathrooms - Can't blame them...
