Good food and excellent value

We went very early evening. The restaurant was quiet. The waiting staff were pleasant. The food was all very good - tasy, hot, freshly cooked, and the prices were very reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend, and would certainly go there again if I was in the area

Good food cooked and presented well but lousy service. A good front of house person is needed. The time taken to clear the table after eating was over 20 mins and only after we requested service.

Having read the reviews on trip adviser 4 mature adults, went for Sunday lunch there yesterday. Having ordered promptly, we waited at least 30 minutes to be presented with one wrong order and my order of roast beef which was dried and curled up at the edges as if it had been under the lights from the time the order...

The restaurant was very busy on a weekday lunchtime in early March. The locals know the food is good! Lots of lovely gluten-free cakes, large portions and reasonably priced. Only one vegetarian choice on the lunch menu, but sandwiches, soup and other possibilities. The decor is nice, too, not too fussy, but some tasteful pictures. All through the season, it's... More

Located in a fishing port so you would expect the fish to be great and it is. I strongly recommend this restaurant. Atmosphere food staff all excellent. Good house wine. Nice little bar to one side of the restaurant.

Although this used to be my favourite restaurant all over the beara peninsula many years ago i still give four stars to the food, the unusual building and the service. I can really recommend the place and would always come back (i live not too far away).
