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.

Had the early bird. The brie and fish cakes were good as was the fish and chips. The plaice was outstanding. The lemon merringue left a little to be desired. As adults though, a very good meal offering excellent value for money (17.95 for 2 courses). The kids had the option of the usual choices (fish/nuggets/pasta) but they were not... More

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
