I ordered 10oz steak with side salad and no chips - watching my figure!! Asked for steak 'well done'. Steak and chips eventually arrived. Has to be worst steak ever! Steak was obviously not freshly cooked. Looked as if microwaved. No smell off steak. Asked waiter how was steak cooked - reply: pan fried. Chips swapped for side salad. €26.50... More

Busy Tourist type restaurant, nice menu with lots of fish, I had the seafood platter which was huge and filling. Presentation of this dish could do with a little work.

I had the seafood platter which consisted of chowder( very good), mussels ( bland), crab (OK), 1 scallop(OK), calamari (over breaded), and fish fillets (over cooked), 1/2 slice of bread and fries for $27.00. Way overpriced and most unexciting meal we have had all week. Go elsewhere.

Ate here with 2 children, staff were extremely uninterested and very rude. Asked for a spoon for a baby and it was handed to us without staff member saying anything at all. Had Fish Cakes which were nothing special, Sweet Chilli sauce was very scant, when I asked for more, waitress got some and plonked it down on the table,... More

5 of us went for evening meal and everyone enjoyed it. The gluten fish and chips were especially enjoyed, as were the fish cakes (said the best she'd tasted). Service was excellent, and staff pleasant and helpful.

Nice spot looking out on the harbour, short wait for food and tasty grub made this a lovely place for dinner. Would definitely return.

What a great find this restaurant was! We had walked by a number of times. But are so grateful we found it and had one of the best meals in Dingle. The bartender was great and made a delicious Dingle vodka martini for my husband. He was very knowledgeable in his craft. The place was also very family friendly. Did... More
