Description: From the 1960's, Patrick's Place was a bustling butcher shop filled with hanging beef, lamb, chickens, pork, cheeks and tails everywhere! The O'Sullivan brothers John (Siobhan's Dad) & Teddy were most notable for their excellence in butchery and food provenance. We bring those same philosophies and passions to the Chapel Steps through our aged Black Irish Angus Steaks, our use of local produce and our commitment to freshness and quality.

“Excellent food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

I was here with my parents last evening and we had a wonderful meal, the food was top class we had the cod fritellas which were delicious and we had fish for main course. The food was just so tasty and great to see local produce on the menu. The service was excellent and it was great value we availed of the early bird menu which was great value, 2 courses for 20euro or 25 euro for 3 courses. Over all hard to beat. The food presentation just topped it off. Well done!.

“Excellent food, great service and super value...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

The service is excellent - there is a great vibe about the place. Service is good, quick and attentive but we never feel rushed or neglected!
The food is just beautiful. Local produce is on the menu and it is served on lovely plates and dishes too! I love that the food comes out to the table hot, and it's clearly not sitting for long in the kitchen! The atmosphere is relaxed and warm but trendy and the seats are so comfy too!
I absolutely adore this restaurant. It's consistently excellent for both food and service. The early bird menu on a Sunday is actually unbelievable value too - and steak night on Wed nights is great too... Have been here to celebrate family occasions as well as romantic meals!
The service is excellent, the food always comes out hot and the cocktails are to die for too!
Recently, we went there for breakfast and I had the eggs benedict and a coffee.. filled me for the day!!
I would strongly reccomend a visit to Chapel Steps in Bandon!! :)

“Lovely Evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Very good food, reasonable menu, especially the 'early bird' menu and steak prices on 'steak night' which was taking place on the Wednesday night when we visited. The staff were efficient, friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was nice and the room comfortable. Would definately book to eat there again. We loved our desserts - caramel and marshmallow cheesecake and pannacotta with fruit.

“good value for tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

have eaten here for dinner and lunch. Food seems to be consistently good and portion sizes very generous. it definately is good value with a nice choice of wines. Only negative is that if looking for table of two they seem to automatically offer the worst situated table in the place (in thoroughfare by a step) - this has happened a few times to us despite there being plenty free tables (and we had made a prior booking). in fairness there was never an issue to be moved once we asked.
