Went here and loved the chowder. Staff was friendly. We just picked it on a whim and just loved the taste. The soup was full of clams and it was a rich cream based sauce.

Stopped for lunch at Chowder Cafe on a warm June day. I had seafood chowder, and my spouse had an open chicken sandwich on soda bread. The food was excellent, and service was very good. The seafood tasted fresh-off-the-boat. Total tab for food only was €17.45 plus gratuity.

We do a lot of eating out for breakfast or lunch. This was one of our tastiest breakfast venues. The servers are so nice and the food was well portioned and tasty. One of the considerations you deal with in Dingle is your location and where the restaurants are... We had a flat on Main St. which is the upper... More

If you like chowder, this is the place to go. It is very small, and crowded, so if you have small hungry kids, you may not want to wait. Otherwise, they had the best chowder of our trip.

Small wonderful spot to rest your feet and sample some of best chowder you will ever have. And if you have room, the smoked salmon, brie and pesto sandwich is not to be missed either.

An extremely friendly and popular seafood restaurant in Dingle, generous serves at a very reasonable price. The seafood here is about as good as you will find in Dingle, restaurant is quite small, so you may have to wait for a table, but it's worth it, restaurant was closed for dinner the 2 nights we were in Dingle. The seafood... More

We stopped in for the seafood chowder and ended up eating there two days in a row. The chowder couldn't be any fresher with large chunks of fish and two or three muscles tossed in for good measure.

We are a small restaurant serving breakfast using locally made bacon, puddings and sausages along with local free range eggs. We also have pancakes with fresh fruit and maple flavour syrup. served 10-12, Our lunch menu 12-4 is about Dingle fresh fish and Irish meat. Our Chowder is recommended We do have a great Club sandwich menu including veggie ones. Please note that we are a small kitchen which means we cannot cater for gluten/nut allergies, also vegans should be aware we of our limitations. Regarding credit/debit cards we don't accept them as the bank charges we are offered are too high.We would rather keep our prices as reasonable as possible.
