What a great meal and upbeat service. I had the biggest bowl of perfectly steamed mussels and cup of delicious butternut squash soup. The homemade bread was to die for, as was the caramel ice cream dessert. Even the coffee was superb. We read the great reviews but our meal exceeded our expectations. If you can't hold out for supper... More

Had lunch here yesterday. 3 mins walk away from Rock of Cashel Went for Express Lunch option Greek Salad & Crispy Fishcake. Both were delicious. All made with local fresh produce and very well presented. Arrived at 12.45 and the restaurant was almost full at that stage. Lovely staff and excellent value.

A really excellent and creative lunch and marvellous desert. Located below the Rock of Cashel, you'd expect basic fare, catering to the tourist masses. What we found was a queue. And a menu that radiated promise. My mother-in-law was with us and we'd not done particularly well on uncovering culinary gems before that. And I'd driven over her toe in... More

One word with numerous exclamation points is not enough. Stopped by for lunch. The squash soup with almonds was a hit. The mussels were outstanding, but the fries, alas were served with ketchup, not mayonnaise. Must be an unfortunate American influence. The Dingle crab with salmon sandwich tasted as good as it looked. The dill potato salad was a nice... More

Escaped in here during a rain storm after visiting the rock of cashel. Such a great little restaurant. Our server was friendly and the good was excellent. I had the lunch portion of lobster and my husband had the lamb burger. Both were excellent. My husband said the espresso was one of the best he had had.

After two weeks of travelling in Scotland and Ireland, this is the first time we have a great meal! What a refreshing change from mostly brown and beige fried offerings we've had up until now. The food is varied here, taste is light, and the price is on par with any other place. The room is clean, does not smell... More

Already being huge fans of Chez Hans, a few weeks ago we decided to go to lunch in Cafe Hans. What an experience! The food was delicious and the menu was very varied. The Restaurant was really busy so we had to wait for about 10 minutes but boy was it worth the wait. As it was a late lunch... More

If I was stuck between Rock and Cafe Hans life would be great. A gem hidden under the Rock. Super food worth the visit. I recommend the squash soup and pulled pork sandwich

I was in Cashel on business and a colleague brought me here for lunch. I had heard of Chez Hans but not of the cafe, and had never eaten in the main restaurant as Cashel never really attracted me. Cafe Hans was really great though, the food was excellent; fresh, imaginative, tasty and good value. It's very small, so you... More

I'm not a tremendous fan of the buffet style lunches, but the service was good, the food was excellent and they have a little patio area outside in the shade that was a God-send on a warm afternoon.
