“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Nice location in town center, attractive, couples,, singles, & family friendly restaurant and take out, delicious fresh dinner. We were impressed with the cleanliness and the very cheerful, competent staff - not least because we observed the graceful way our server approached a group of four, prepared to take their drink orders, that "as one is driving, I'll only serve three.. which of you is the driver?" A commitment to the spirit, not just the letter of the law!

“Super Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We had another very enjoyable visit to the Fastnet Catch earlier this month. This time the fresh fish menu had haddock, hake and plaice. We all ordered the haddock and similar to our last visit the fish was battered lightly and lovely and moist on the inside. Our kids ordered the fresh fish goujons and the cook came to our table to enquire if the kids would prefer the fish skinned, breaded, battered, etc and he also said that he would make sure that their fish was de-boned properly. The chips had a nice crisp (but not too crispy) and were perfect in my opinion, and unlike some other fast food restaurants they weren't greasy at all and they didn't leave us feeling bloated.

The restaurant is also now serving beer from the Dungarvan beer company, this is a great addition to the drinks menu and it went really well with our fish.

Clear plates all around and we'll definitely be back! Best fish and chips in Clon by far!

“Not worth the lengthy wait”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

We were waiting about half an hour for a chicken burger & house burger. The food was ok and the female server was pleasant. The food totalled over €30 including drinks, I felt thus was very overpriced for sit down shipper food. We will not be returning in the future.

Very good fish and chips! We visited here right after the flooding in late June 2012. The employees were very apologetic for the bare floors, as their carpet was ruined. I was just impressed they were open, and putting out delicious food.
