We were referred by a waiter at another one of our favorites in Dingle. We were not sent away hungry or less than pleased with all aspects of the evening. Great wine pairings, stunning presentation, and eager to please staff. We will return.

Went in at dinner time for a light bite. We didn’t order an entre. Only appetizers. So they Refused to sell us a vegetable plate because they only are served with entrees.

We were lucky to get in without a reservation after a day touring the Dingle Peninsula. We all ordered the special, which included a generous portion of John Dory and turbot, along with a few mussels, some potatoes and veg. The service was friendly and...More

I don't own the business. The menu is predominantly fish and meat but when asked in the past they have served up a couple of nice veggie dishes.
