Excellent meal on a beautiful September evening. Called in on spec. Delighted to get a table on a Thursday evening without booking. Had the galette which was exceptionally good. Lovely way to spend an evening.
Stopped off here after walking from Kinsale town up to Charles fort . It was a hot sunny day with plenty of people outside eating and drinking and generally seemed to be having the craic. We chose to sit inside where it was cooler. We...had lobster and mussels and we were blown away by the portion for the price when it arrived. Plates were licked clean !!! So fresh and delicious. Staff were brilliant and efficent . Loved it all!! Ps toilets were spotlessMore
On a staycation in cork I decided to visit kinsale. Many years ago I would have visited the Bullman regularly so I was looking forward to returning.
Such a disappointment. We ordered fish & chips. The batter was soggy & the pea purée was a...mint glob.
The menu is very restricted & in the gourmet capital if Ireland just doesn’t reach the standard.
I was annoyed that I had wasted a night of my trip thereMore
On a recent family holiday to Kinsale we went to Toddies at the Bulman for dinner. Three of us opted for the special of the day which was turbot and scallops on a bed of risotto. At over €30 a plate it fell well short...of expectations. Overall value for money was not good and will not be back.More
We had a delicious meal with great service, perfectly cooked lobster and other seafood, and lovely wine. You can’t pay the tip on card though so bring cash with you. I will absolutely be coming back here
Recently decided to eat here while on holidays. Ideal location for tourists who wish to eat at a picturesque location with good parking nearby. A cozy establishment on the coastline. This place has great potential. However, the children’s menu is severely lacking in anything child...friendly. Of the two options Thai green curry is one. Perhaps, this is due to covid and aiming to have a reduced menu, but I know grown adults who wouldn’t eat green Thai curry as a result of its spice levels. We asked the waitress could we have plain mash instead (as there was “wasabi mash” on the menu). She didn’t check just dismissed us straight away. Starters were pricey but this was made up for with a size portion to match the price. If you aren’t a lover of fish or seafood, I wouldn’t recommend eating here. Huge delay on mains which left a stale taste on the experience. We ordered the muscles which were to die for and a huge portion. Same can be said for the lobster. However, the cod was a let down. There was more batter than fish, which was like moist bread at times. We weren’t checked on during the meal. When the mains finally did arrive, they did so in bits and pieces another table was also being served. As a waiter myself, this is something I would not recommend. We asked for dessert and the waitress frankly told us to eat it in 3 minutes or to get out as another table had booked. I hope this was just a one off experience as we’d live to return to the area in the future.More
Not child friendly at all!!!
Warning if bringing kids there is only 2 options for them, Fish and chips and chicken curry which is my sons favourite. Unfortunately though what they don't state is its actually a spicy Thai green curry that he couldn't eat....There is a Thai green curry on the main menu that stats its a "Thai green curry" so when the childs menu states its a just a "Chicken Curry" you'd obviously presume its the Chinese type that we all know as a chicken curry. Also at €10 for a childs portion its very expensive. My daughter didn't want either option so she decided she wanted mussels and chips. The only mussels they had were on the starter menu and had a chilli coconut broth. I asked could they just cook her a plain starter portion without the chilli. The waiter went to the kitchen to ask and when he came back he told me the broth was already made and they couldn't do a plain portion. Now anyone who knows anything about mussels know that they take seconds to cook and must be cooked fresh. Telling me that they couldn't cook a plain portion for a child suggests the mussels aren't cooked fresh to order and they probably reheat them if they are already in the broth. If they weren't cooked the mussels wouldn't be open so there would be no problem rinsing the chilli broth off uncooked mussels and cooking them plain for a child.
Lovely place but they obviously don't want children there as they basically only have one option for kids in their Fish and chips because I dont know many young kids who enjoy a spicy Thai green curry. And I know spicy food as i love it. It was spicy. Not vindalo spicy but certainly too spicy for a 9 year old!More
