The sticky toffee pudding is full of raisins, don't get it. But the seafood chowder is outstanding!! Great service, adorable venue.

Thank you Katie for the 5 star review, glad you enjoyed our chowder. We don't do sticky toffee pudding as just about every restaurant in Dingle serves it. We do however make an Old Fashioned Spiced Bread Pudding which is loaded with dried mixed fruits. Apologies if it wasn't too your taste. Regards Charlie. More

This was a tiny cafe with very limited seating a bit from the main road in Dingle. But the food is worth the wait for a small table. Excellent seafood (try the chowder).

Very small place with limited menu but the seafood chowder was rich and creamy and had the most seafood I have ever had. Big variety of seafood in it. Came with homemade soda bread. Don't take credit cards and they don't serve alcohol of any kind. They had a list of homemade desserts but I didn't try them.

This cozy little place is located in the charming village of Dingle midway in the Dingle Peninsula Circuit. The chef was on site and so pleased to hear our delight in her culinary skills. The chowder had huge chunks of the most delicate fresh fish brought in right from the dock and the fish and chips were the best on... More

We stopped by here for lunch one day. They are quick about getting your orders and make the chowder fresh and from what they have on hand everyday. They also have some nicely done sandwiches to go with it.

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.
