Best ever

I brought my family to this restaurant recently and was bowled over by the quality of the food. O'Connor's seems to work with just the freshest 'catch of the day' and consequently the menu is not as extensive as you might expect. However, what is on the menu is of the highest quality.

From outside this place looks quite ordinary but when you get inside you find an elegant cosy interior. The service was great, the menu was interesting and our turbot with prawn bisque was superb. Homemade bread is served with the meal and portions are generous so we did not get to research the dessert menu - maybe next time. Worth... More

Called in on spec @ 3.00pm for lunch. Perfectly cooked calamari starters followed Brill & John Dory for mains. Beautifully cooked fresh fish with pleasant service. What more could you want? Definitely will be back.

Everything about this experience was great. Their service was friendly and attentive. Two kinds of breads were served with dipping sauces. We ordered the calamari and beer battered fish. They were amazing. Both were the best I have had anywhere. Dessert was also great! Don't miss this one. It is so worth the money spent. Can't wait to go back

Since winning a trip last year for a week on the wild atlantic way, we have eaten here many times. We are not big seafood or fish eaters, but when we eat here the fish is the first thing gone from the plate, thats how good and fresh it is!!! My favourite is the southern crub hake gougons that come... More

Went with friends whilst touring County Cork, food was delicious and the service very friendly. We had oysters which were very fresh, taken from the tank in the restaurant, the guys both had the curry and us ladies went for the fish 2 ways. The place was buzzing, it was a Saturday evening and we all said we would return.

The restaurant is a must visit if you enjoy decent food and are ever in Bantry. The food is amazing, it's certainly not cheap but well worth the splurge for a special occasion. The Calamari is amazing as well as the Fisherman's Catch. Their seafood is so fresh, well cooked and well prepared. They also have amazing home made bread... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat in Bantry via Trip Advisor. This was the first one with space. We were delighted when we saw the menu; fresh fish, but cooked more imaginatively than is often the case. The service was great: friendly and efficient, giving a great atmosphere. We loved it so much we are going back tonight!

We were looking for good food, well-prepared, and found it here. The daily black-board specials were all tempting, and we ordered a variety of tastes. Nothing disappointed! The waitress even offered gluten-free bread for my brother-in-law, making him very happy. The ambiance was easy and elegant, and the food superb!
