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!

After looking at the alternatives in Bantry, this one appealed to us. The ambiance is, sophisticated, comfortable nice seating, music and good service. Although we only had the Seafood Chowder for lunch the menu, was interesting and varied with prices similar to the local pub. The Chowder at 7 euros was excellent, not overdone with cream, and very nice warm... More

I went to O'Connor's while in Bantry, ordered the fisherman's basket, and it was literally the best fried fish I've ever tasted, counting all the other dozen places I went in Ireland. The price was standard to other restaurants, and the service was excellent as well. If you're in the area, this one is a must.

Wasn't overly hunger, so we skipped starters but again a nice selection of starters and would love to have tried them. We were offered a selection of breads and dips while waiting on main course (nice touch) I... More
