“Vegetarian choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Normally two choices of vegetarian food. Which is a lot better than most of clon. Also other special diet needs catered for. Normally booking required as very busy. Sometimes very loud as the wine disappears. Lovely friendly staff.

“Left unimpressed...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Ate in the Malthouse recently and was left a bit disappointed by the food. Starter of seafood platter was bland. Have had some amazing platters in the past but this was just lacking something. Some nice brown bread to accompany would have made a huge difference, but the smoked salmon/crab mayo/lukewarm mussels/calamari was a let down. It could have done with an extra flavour to liven it up a bit. Chicken stuffed with Durrus cheese and wrapped in bacon was better, but nothing to write home about. Dessert was the best dish - a warm chocolate tort with cointreau soaked orange segments.

Of the 3 others in our party, 2 weren't impressed with the fish of the day offering - sole stuffed with crab meat - although it sounded delicious. The seabass though was a hit!Sides of garlic potato,red cabbage and veg were nice. One particular staff member (didn't get her name) was great and extremely friendly, but the other girl serving could do with taking a few lessons from her colleague!

“Great food, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Five of us had a meal here on Saturday night. We were not disappointed. Service was very friendly, food was excellent. The fillet stake was done just the way I like it. Garlic potatoes were fantastic. All of us were more that happy with our choices.

“Seafood at Malthouse 'scales' new heights!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Great restaurant/bistro in central Clonakilty....and I would highly recommend this place to anyone visit the town. Great range of seafood, meat and poultry - but if you like your seafood....then this is the place! Mouthwatering platters to indulge in or be selfish and opt for the hake, cod etc.....don't get me started on the desserts.....yummylicious!! Also, great selection on the wine list....and staff are very good in recommending wines to suit seafood, steaks or vegetarian options. Definitely worth a visit :o)
