Lovely, I had chicken caesar salad for starter, also very nice, and apple pie for desert - all top class, staff were very good too, ensuring we had enough of everything and that we were... read more

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).

Called in just to meet friends who were dining there, was made welcome and kindly seated with them by the staff...decided to have desert....its hard to beat their delicious deserts, easy to see why this is highly rated based on the care and attention of the owner/manager who was in circulation making sure everything was running smoothly, 3rd time visiting...

Nice little restaurant. Not fancy, but then none of them are in Castletownbere. What you will get is good service, friendly waiting staff and a good selection on the menu. I had mussels followed by the monkfish special and my friend had soup, followed by plaice. The only let down was the soup, which had been over-nuked and remained impossibly... More

Booking was for the busiest day/weekend in Castletownbere at the last sitting - but the food + service was still excellent + showed no signs of fatigue. The fish + meat dishes were full of flavour and cooked to perfection. Service was very pleasant and efficient.
