Very nice restaurant. Fast service with a very busy restaurant. Probably busier as a takeaway than a restaurant. Very tasty pizza and garlic bread. If I was back in Bantry I'd defo go back even tho I thought it was a tad bit pricey.

We really like their Pizza - great base and all the toppings you could ask for. Take away is available as is sit down. Efficient service in a busy restaurant favoured by families with young kids.

Go to the Brick Oven for Sunday Lunch/dinner regularly. Food excellent. Make the best Pizzas in the world. I just love them. We find the staff friendly and very efficient. They are always well mannered and love their curry and fish also. Would recommend the place to all my friends.

Dessert we shared banoffi pie... More

A party of six of us (locals) booked the Christmas Dinner menu, mid-December 2014. The table was set with Christmas crackers, but no candle. One of us asked for a choice off the non-festive menu and was told it was not possible (no explanation why). The food was average, but was spoilt by being served on stone cold dinner plates....

I came here on New Year's Eve. The staff were very friendly & the food was tasty albeit slightly on the expensive side One thing I would say is that the toilets were very dirty.
