Nice selection of evening dishes (at noon, it serves mainly sandwiches which we didn't try), friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Great value for your money (compared to other restaurants in the area which are rather expensive) and offers quite large quantities of food.

This is an OK bar with a fairly good ambiance and reasonable food. I was disappointed with my stew which was tasteless, but portions are large, and my crumble for dessert was better - quite nice. Fine for bar food.

Literally stumbled on this total gem of a pub / restaurant. It was mid afternoon but as we hadn't had lunch & had an early evening concert to attend we opted to have an early dinner here. We both opted for the Cold Seafood Salad which was indescribably delicious - poached salmon, fresh crab meat & fresh prawns in very... More

Was visiting family and we went here for food. I loved the selection - roast beef, Turkey and ham etc etc - a great choice of food. The food was lovely-and plenty of it there. I also loved the jug of water and diluted juice - a nice touch. However to improve they should think about their organisation. Food/cutlery/glasses were... More

We had a wonderful meal in The Waterfront Bar last weekend. We wondered in after a busy day exploring beautiful Bantry and it was a perfect end to our day. We were looking for something fast and reasonably priced and that is exactly what we got in the Waterfront. There were 5 of us (2 adult and 3 children) and... More

This fabulous restaurant is located on the main (Wolfe Tone) square in Bantry town. It does not look big from the outside but when you enter, you a greeted with a very cozy yet modern atmosphere. The staff are extremely nice and always running around making sure you are alright. The choice of food is great and is very well... More

Television screens rather dominate this restaurant. Ther service is good, and we enjoyed the sea bass we ordered. However, the vegetables were fairly stodgey and unimaginative.
