I have dined here twice at night, nice menu with lovely seafood at fairly reasonable prices. I had calamari starter and monkfish main both times. Calamari was delicious and crisp and the monkfish fabulous. My friend had pizza, which she loved though I thought base was too floppy and not enough toppings for my liking. Service lovely and nice pint... More

It was the best pizza I've ever eaten. the crust was perfectly cooked and the sauce not to sweet and just the right amount. Served hot, what else can... More

Good but not great food, friendly but a bit forgetful service, front of restaurant nice but the back part a bit cafeteria like. Overall good but I'd say there's better in Bantry.

We enjoyed genuinely friendly and efficient service from the local staff at this restaurant. The food was good, if not very good, and we could see a real effort was made with it, even if it is a notch off top end cooking. Wine list was decent. On an earlier visit they delivered pizzas to our rented holiday home a... More

We had a very delicious meal at this restaurant and the service was good too. We don't normally drink wine and were brought water without having to ask. We both ordered French onion soup which was very tasty, served with a thick slice of toast and melted cheese, yummy!! Also a basket of bread and some butter, nice touch. Our... More

We ate here on a busy Saturday evening. A party of 6, 4 of whom were small children. We were welcomed in even though we had no booking and were accommodated with a very comfortable corner table with plenty room for a high chair and the buggy. The food was excellent and really good value. I would highly recommend this... More
