We stumbled on this place and were early enough so we could get in. It's very popular. The food is outstanding. Fresh fish, oysters, great sides, and drinks. The service was perfect. Atmosphere charming.

This restaurant is a must in Dingle if you love seafood like we do. Being from New England, we know great seafood and this is one of the best places we have ever eaten at! We ate here twice on our 5 day visit!

This place has a wonderful variety of seafood with many different preparations. Menu changes regularly. Wonderful oysters are usually on offer. Relatively small so reservations recommended.
