In-fact I'm nearly sure my chicken was gone off.... I never ate it & I never complained as I had the misfortune of seeing another table complain & get... More

The best restaurant that we have visited in West Cork. It also has the best pint of Guinness that I have had, to go with it. The bar staff were utterly charming, and the best atmosphere I have encountered in the whole of Munster. The hospitality of the owners was outstanding, and the customer service were second to none. Defiently... More

Went on 12th September as a group from different European countries. We all agreed the food was awful. even the people who actually got what they ordered! Service was okay but the food caused a few upset stomachs within our party. Would not recommend under any circumstances.
