Always a good bet!

Lovely food, I'm a big fan of the Chicken Vodka Linguini. Pizzas are some of the best I've found and a Brick Oven Brownie Sundae is always a treat! Prices are reasonable and staff are brilliant!

We visited The Brick Oven on a recommendation and were pleased the results. I had a gluten free pizza. The crust was crispy (hard to accomplish) and the flavor was tasty. My husband had a spicy pizza and ate the entire thing! My daughter had a quesadilla and enjoyed it. She also had chocolate ice cream for dessert (which was... More

Two of us ate here last Thursday night. The atmosphere is lovely - very relaxed and informal. The food experience however varied drastically depending on what you ordered. I had the chicken wings followed by the scallop and monkfish from the 'specials' menu and affagato for dessert and got the better meal by far - the wings were presented with... More

Last Friday night my husband took the family out for dinner. My son enjoyed his spaghetti Bolognese to the very last bit. My husband had a lovely vegetable soup followed by a pepperoni pizza while I had the seafood chowder followed by wings. Very tasty. The mint chocolate cheesecake for dessert was heavenly. Highly recommended.

Came on this place as a recommendation from a pub in Durrus where we were too late for food! We both had pizza, I had a GF one. Mine was absolutely gorgeous and was a real treat for me as GF pizza is hard to get and even harder to get a truly nice one. OH was delighted with his... More

I was here with a group of 6 friends. The pizza was tasty and the rest of the menu looked good as well. It hit the spot on a Sunday evening.

I have been to the Brick oven a couple of times over the past years and found it to be a good place to eat out on average.

Really nice restaurant. It was a lovely casual dining experience. As the name suggests, they cook pizzas in their brick oven but the menu is much more than just pizza. I had a really nice steak there. Reasonable prices and fabulous staff who were very friendly and very accommodating. In fact, we were so impressed with the service that we... More

Cute restaurant overlooking Bantry bay. Would suggest booking to get a window seat. We didn't and sat up the back. Very cozy and dark. We ordered the seafood linguine (very good) and the chicken saltimbucca. Choice of two sides from the daily menu. Both were very much enjoyed. The waitress was attentive and professional. Nice break from pub meals. Lots... More
