I had read on Trip Advisor what a good restaurant this was when visiting Kinsale so we decided to try it. Unfortunately, we had been traveling all day so we didn't have a chance to make a reservation, so when we walked in, we were unable to eat there that night. The owner who greeted us was very nice and gave us a couple of other nearby restaurants that we could try. One of patrons who was eating there told us we should make a reservation for the next night because her meal of scallops and risotto was the best she had ever eaten, and she said I should come back and try it! With that rave review in mind, we made an early reservation for the next evening. I tried the scallops as was recommended, and it was indeed delicious. The owner, once again, came over and visited with us and was absolutely charming. She even gave us a couple of recommendations of places in Dublin where my husband could get a delicious steak. Unfortunately, my husband's meal was not as good as mine. He ordered ham, and the slices were extremely thin and his dinner did not include any other side dishes so his meal was not very satisfying. The atmosphere in this intimate wine bar is cozy and charming. If you like good wine and you are willing to have limited selections in a warm, friendly atmosphere, this is a great restaurant! Like most restaurants in a fishing village, make sure you order one of the seafood entrees!
