Really Good

Visited here twice while on a short visit to Bantry. Busy on both occasions, but it was obvious to us why it was busy. The food and service were top class. Look forward to a return visit some day

Great food. the seafood pasta was excellent. Service was attentive despite the place being heaving with people. We booked the first time we went, but were able to walk in with just five minutes sitting at the bar the second time.

we had a lovely meal here, the menu was varied, the staff was friendly and the food was good. It was just a little noisy as the restaurant was so packed.

Nice setting, we had a seat by the window and we hadn't booked so it was great we could walk in. Not sure it's worth the "hype" about town however. Pizza was nice, but I've had the same in a take away without a restaurant price tag. The staff were nice, although a bit false in their sincerity. If I'm... More

We were in a hurry, but managed to get excellent pizzas here, served very efficiently. Mine in particular was very tasty - made with Mediterranean vegetables.

Very busy when we arrived but the service was excellent even under those conditions. Food was delicious, went for one of the specials, monkfish and scallop gratin... stunning! Very affordable price and would return when back in Bantry.

After wondering around the Bantry Market on Friday my teenage son managed to persuade me to treat him to lunch at The Brick Oven. We had not eaten there for a while and were not disappointed. It is as good (if not better) then we remembered. My son ordered a Hawaiian pizza and it looked mouth wateringly good and after... More

Nice bustling atmosphere. Service was good and prompt without us feeling rushed. The pizza's were excellent beautifully fresh toppings and cooked to perfection in a traditional wood fired oven which just added to the overall experience. Deserts were very tasty too and nice jam jar presentation. Overall 2 pizzas garlic bread and 2 deserts, with drinks for a little over... More

Whenever I'm going to a restaurant, the brick oven is the one I think of first. The pizzas are the best I ever tasted and the desserts are simply divine.

Visited this restaurant several times during a recent holiday in Durrus. All our meals were excellent and the service was brilliant. There is a wide variety on the menu which was great for us as it kept everybody happy. Really good value and great portion size. It was lovely to dine there after a day travelling around this beautiful part... More
