“SEAFOOD HEAVEN AT FISHY FISHY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Recommended by our Old Presbytery hostess (this review elsewhere) we wandered to Fishy Fishy our first evening-and AGAIN once before we departed! Each time dining room was very busy-and we chose to sit at bar. Great barman, lovely well-timed service, SUPERB sauces.
According to those in the "know", this chef not only has his own cookbook but is now on TV-can understand why! Had brill, hake, ray and mussels during our visits-each presented beautifully with fresh vegetables, sauces to die for. HINT: We split an appetizer and entree and that was sufficient for two hungry Americans-and our wallets! DO TRY-but not without reservations IF you want the dining room. They had a nice sized outdoor patio-which should be lovely in the better weather.

“Delicious fresh seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

A wonderful meal and I would happily eat there again. Seafood is well worth having and reservations needed but well worth it. Reasonable priced.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This restaurant had been so highly recommended that we were anxious to try it. We arrived early, to be ahead of the crowd and were seated at the rear of the room. Service was average and prices were high.Tables were very closely spaced. Our food was satisfactory, but fell short of what we'd had in other Kinsale resataurants. Husband had grilled salmon over Basmati rice with onions and I had a warm shellfish salad over greens. I will say that the Lemon Posset for dessert was exquisite, (Lemon Cream almost like custard). Maybe my expectations were too high, but this was probably our least favorite restaurant in Kinsale.

“Fish lovers heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Myself and my family ate here for my sisters graduation and enjoyed it thoroughly promising to return. Between the excellent service, friendly staff and fantastic food (at a reasonable price for the standard provided) it has to be one of the best restaurants I've had the pleasure of dining in. I'd just like to say Thank you!

“Fishy, fishy...great dishy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed a great dinner at Fishy, Fishy in Kinsale. He had the salmon and I had the black sole. Both were beautifully prepared and presented. It did not disappoint.

We usually do not get dessert, but we decided to try the sticky toffee pudding which we had never had. It was fabulous. Well worth the calories!
