We ate here twice, the first was very good, swift polite service and very welcome after a long journey from Dublin. The second evening I think they over stretched themselves because they accepted our large group a late notice. We appreciated them fitting us in, but the resulting service was very slow. The food was still good, the service still... More

Food was excellent as always. We have been going to this restaurant every time we visit Castletownberehaven. Never disappoints.

We had a delicious evening meal here. There was a really good variety on the menu and service was very good. We hadn't booked, so were put in the bar rather than the restaurant though in fact the 2 rooms are almost identical with open doors between them. We would certainly visit again if we return to Castletownbere.

We had booked to come here on the evening of the Castletownbere annual regatta, first they said we hadn't booked, then they said we had booked but for the previous day and cancelled it. They then said they were too busy but eventually found us a table, (not too difficult as there were plenty empty). The staff obviously wanted to... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. We tried two of the daily specials ... I had duck and he had a locally made sausage. Both were delicious and well presented. We had a local beer and no room for dessert. The coffee was excellent. Relaxed environment, very good service

This restaurant came recommended and was very disappointed. Food poor. Ordered Scallops - which were overcooked - served on mashed potatoes - tasteless. Over priced.

Bouillabaisse, to my mind is a classic fish stew....fresh pieces of various fish cooked in good fish stock, with some tomatoes, perhaps with some fennel & croutons.....not here, mine had overcooked pieces of fish, in a bland creamy sauce which I'm guessing was coloured by saffron. My wife ordered Monkfish which again was not very fresh, and had the texture... More

I ate here last Saturday night with 4 friends. The service was excellent as was the food. We had chowder, bruschetta and crab gratin to start, and all seafood mains which were really flavoursome. Desserts were chocolate brownie, apple & rhubarb crumble and bailey's cheesecake and again all delicious. There were plenty of gluten free options across the 3 courses.... More

We had not booked and were pleased to be welcomed on a busy Saturday evening. Crab gratin, seafood chowder, monkfish and steak were all good, service was attentive and we finished sharing a creme brûlée.

Go to the bars for fun then come here for dinner. Very well prepared cuisine in a bright and friendly dining room. A good craft beer selection
