The chef here knows what he/she is doing. The starter and 2 mains (all seafood) we had were excellent. It was reasonably priced too. Would definitely return.

We took a trip into the wild west from our usual base in West Waterford to admire the stunning scenery around the Beara Peninsula and ended up spending the night in Castletownbere. This small town isn't much to shout about as it's mainly a fishing port for large trawlers, however it is a good base to explore the area and... More

Good food, enough choices on the menu and moderate prices make it a popular place. Their seafood is especially good. They serve variety of beers like anywhere in Ireland but they also serve both white and red wine by glass or by bottle. The service is friendly and rather prompt.

We were recommended this place by the Sea Breeze B&B owner for an excellent place to eat & we weren't disappointed. From the outside it looks like a "run of the mill" eatery but once you step inside, that perception changes. It is tastefully decorated & a good seating lay out. We ate on the early bird menu for 2... More

Came here on a whim, when the restaurant of our choice was closed for a wake. We were very pleased as the food was delicious, the service good and we had a very pleasant evening. The seafood and fish was extremely fresh and we will certainly come back!
