We had an amazing meal here this week. The food was top class and the best we have tasted in ages. The ambience is wonderful and we had the pleasure of meeting the chef Ian who was so welcoming and friendly. If you are in Bantry you NEED to eat here. Thank you all, we will be back!

Popped in for a bit to eat and asked for a table for two. Were told by the woman who met us that there were no tables available - even though I was looking at a couple of empty ones - and that we'd have to eat at the bar. Menus were deposited in front of us but by the... More
