What an experience we had last week. This is possible the best lunch my partner and I have ever had. From entering into the restaurant we were greeted by the lovely waitress Corinna who looked after us throughout our meal and was extremely attentive and gave us some recommendations from the menu which were spot on. We both agreed that... More

Just ok - looking forward to dining experience. The Guinness not good the starter crab claws rather small and Stirfry and fish cakes fine not enough to bring me back.

I've eaten here on many occasions over the past few years and returned again recently. The tempura prawns, seafood platter and crab 3 ways are absolutely exceptional. I can't wait to return and eat some more of the freshest seafood on the market. The staff are also fantastic!

This is a very nice restaurant/bar. We ate in other places in Dingle but this was our favourite. There are nice views of the harbour from the outside seating area when the tour buses have left. If you are wondering where to eat in Dingle then this is a great choice.

Laura originally ordered the kids burger... More

Good food, well presented but with so much competition on the same Street.....a tad expensive. Saw a lot of couples looking at the menu outside and moving on elsewhere

We went there for dinner and had a seafood feast! We sat out in the courtyard area, the air in there was a little stuffy, but really pretty. We shared a seafood sampler, the lobster, and another entree that I can't recall. Everything was great!

My girlfriend and I ate here during a driving golf/distillery holiday of Scotland/Ireland in August 2015. Whilst driving to Killarney we found a quint village called Dingle and had a stroll along the main waterfront street. We stopped for dinner here. The place was busy, but with no reservation they managed to squeeze us in. Food was lovely, the service... More

It was a beautiful sunny day and we sat outside. I had the seafood chowder and it was the best I have had in ages. The waitress was friendly and the service good
