I visit this restaurant every two weeks with my colleague when we are in the area. I always look forward to having my lunch here and the Sneem visit can't come quick enough! I have the warm Goat's cheese salad and it is divine! Big piece of mouth-watering cheese sitting on a beautiful salad with toasted almonds and comes with... More

It doesn't look like a big eatery from the outside and feels more like a cafe than a bistro but there is an extensive menu and the food is all prepared from scratch, and is lovely! The best is the staff - they are welcoming and immediately set about making a table for 10 of us and were so friendly.... More

A lovely quaint little bistro on the riverside! I came here for a bite to eat after a busy day travelling. The menu was perfect! I opted for a chicken salad baguette and chips, it was so delicious! There was also lots of other choices including hot meals. The baked goods looked amazing, unfortunately I did not have time to... More

Had to give it 5/5 just for the homemade Bonoffe Pie!! Bloody delicious! Service good (although the one guy was miserable! But the rest very nice! Lovely location on the side of the river. Definitely worth a visit!!

This is a beautiful bistro beside Sneem bridge, right in the middle of the busy village. The menu has lots to choose from, a simple soup and sandwich all the way up to a scampi or other meal. The homebaking looks enticingly out at you from the fridge and if the weather is nice you should definitely sit outside and... More

What drew us was the beautiful exterior and the chance at outdoor seating with an overlook. I fancied a place across the road which had a more expansive menu but was vetoed by my family because it looked "well worn." The daily specials started with the Seafood Chowder which when it arrived appeared to be on the Manhattan side of... More

We were with 3 people and visites Sneem. For lunch we had Chowder and sandwiches. Lunch was oké I guess. No great surprises, a bit middle of the road. Location is great and service good.

This place is one to avoid....the food is well below average and generally I was not impressed at all. The kids food was very poor, my kids had pasta and pizza, and I must say the pasta was terrible.....I could not recommend this place, they really would want to up their game in terms of quality and presentation....so much more...
