We had a pint here and looked at the menu, food looked alrite from what we saw of people eating outside, and the pint was fine but we chose not eat here as the woman of the house was just rude. My husband asked her a simple question about the type of cider we might have and she barely deigned... More

My boyfriend and I, unlike many other reviewers unfortunately did not look up the reviews before going here. After sitting down and ordering our food I noticed flies everywhere not a great start then our food arrived I got a vegetarian curry and my boyfriend got a burger. If I had to describe the food in one word it would... More

Worst restaurant experience that I have ever had. Ordered Cajun chicken with rice. What arrived was tough chicken in a brown sauce of unknown origin on soggy rice.

We arrived into Glengarriff famished after a long drive around the Beara. We walked the street unsure what we would eat and ended up taking a seat outside the Rainbow Restaurant. After deciding what we'd have, I entered through the restaurant and into the bar where I met a lady to place the order. She was not overly friendly and... More

To be honest I don`t know why anybody would want to eat here as everything we ordered was absolutely DISGUSTING. A health inspector needs to come as this place is well below standards. There were dead flies all over the windowsill and the oil used to cook the food needs to be changed as the Chicken goujons tasted as they... More

When we went in the chicken curry smelt very nice so I ordered it my Mother ordered the pizza, the curry was bland and gave me indigestion which is not me especially after only eating half of it, the pizza was a frozen one that was reheated but was low quality to start. This is probably a very good pub... More

Stopped here for lunch. Never again, dated premises and awful 'homemade' pizza. If it was homemade I'll eat my hat. Avoid.

Great Food and service too. Great food at a good price. Got free soup too. The owner was out on the sidewalk trying to entice you to come in. We were reluctant at first but after we went in we were glad we did.

Having looked at trip advisor I chose is place by mistake as the bar section has a different name. The food was not too horrible but the place was dirty and smelled funny. He owner also cheated my daughter who tried to buy some postcards, charging double the marked price! She spent most of her time swearing on the phone... More
