Lovely place, friendly people and fantastic food. What else can we say. We ate there twice on wednesday, once for busy lunch and we came back in the evening. Both times we left satisfited. Fish and rib eye were absolutely perfect . Staff is very friendly and happy to be there. But don't always expect a seat as most other... More

Never disappoints! Have eaten there twice, both times, left feeling full and happy, beautiful food, nothing too complicated, friendly staff. Would recommend the pasta for main course!

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

Had lunch here again today, very busy but food up to same standard we now expect. Service was fast and friendly by all the staff, and the waitress with the little skirt (not that I'd notice such little things) was very chatty to all. Will definitely visit again soon.

This is truly one of the best places we've ever eaten. Food there is always amazing. Portions are huge and very tasty. Service is fast and very friendly. We had great recommendation from the waiter. Fish was fantastic and my husband loved his steak.

I have eaten at The Snug a few times after moving to Bantry. But never have I been so embarrassed or treated so rudely there until my last visit. The customer service was appalling. If you would like to be treated like your two feet tall and always wrong, head to The Snug. Here is a positive though, the meals... More

Best place for food in Bantry, you get so much food and it's so delicious. The best part about it is the staff, so cheerful and helpful.

We were on a short visit to Bantry when we went here for an evening meal. It was very busy. They do not take bookings, so we arrived to a full house and had to wait a short while for a table. The Snug is what one might describe as a pub turned restaurant. Many have had to do that... More
