Stopped here for lunch and was really pleasently surprised. The food was very tasty and the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The tables outside by the quay provided a wonderful setting, it is an extremely beautiful place.

Then for main course we had the fish and chips and fish pie. Again the portions were large and very tasty. The staff were very friendly and efficient and... More

Arundels is family owned and run. It is a combination of intimate gastro pub and restaurant, in fine weather one can also eat outside and enjoy the stunning views over the small harbour with moored yachts and fishing boats. The specials board offers the freshest of sea food cooked imaginatively, no small portions here. in the busy season reserve ahead... More

Several Sundays we have tried to have lunch at Arundels but it was always a beautiful sunny day and it was just too crowded. This Sunday we went early on a very drizzly afternoon. We were actually the first customers in the door. The greeting couldn't have been warmer. Ms. O'Sullivan gave us a tour of the restaurant and told... More

We've tried loads of good restaurants around Bantry and Glengariff, and there are many. Arundels by the Pier beats 'em all for location (right on the bay, across from the pier), views out onto the Sheeps Head Peninsula, Ahakista, West Cork. It has a lovely green area with picnic benches on a green running right down to the bay, great... More

We started with a drink in the downstairs bar and then went up to the restaurant. The staff were very friendly and the food was very pleasant with good... More

We visited this restaurant with our friends who have been to the restaurant numerous times before. I like the setting in the restaurant upstairs, where we were seated. The service was good and maybe a little too quick. There is a great selection on the menu. I only managed 2 courses and could not fit a desert in! I had... More

We visited Arundels after an afternoon's walk on the Sheep's Head Peninsula on a beautiful July evening watching the sunset across the bay. We sat outside and enjoyed excellent service and food, washed down with a pint of Murphys. This was our second visit to this pub/restaurant and we will return.
