My god, we had been in Dublin and went to a well regarded restaurant which we were disappointed with. We stopped in cafe Hans on the way home. Everything was delicious, I don’t much like carrots but they were fantastic, all of the party couldn’t...stop praising the meal. Many thanks to our waiter Stephen who was so helpful and kindMore

Ate here on Saturday, lovely restaurant, friendly staff. Place was nearly full, they don't take booking but looking at crowd they don't need to. Ordered the baked Cod and Wife ordered the coronation chicken. Soda bread with treacle arrived at table before food, it was...beautiful. Food arrived shortly afterwards, couldn't fault the food it was outstanding. Will definitely return very soon.More

After braving the heights and winds of the Rock of Cashel you deserve an exceptional lunch down the street at Cafe Hans. The food is terrific;the staff is welcoming and attentive. Our best lunch by a mile (or by a kilometer) on our two week...journey in Ireland. My wife actually called when we returned to the US to rave about the food and brown bread.More

After exploring Rock of Cashel, we looked for a quick lunch before heading on. Cafe Hans far exceeded our expectations. The three course lunch option was quite the value (we opted for wine over dessert). The fishcake was a meal in itself, crispy crust, moist...inside, filled with fish and paired with a fresh green salad with mango and pomegranate. My husband ordered the pork; and our friends ordered the quinoa and the cod. We argued over who got the best meal. The mushroom soup was a great start. The hint of tarragon added to the rich flavors. And above all of that, the service was simply superior - well-paced, friendly, and responsive.More

You cannot book a table here, but the wait is well worth it as the food and service is brilliant. Terrific value, best food.

Cafe Hans lived-up to the prior reviews. We weren’t disappointed. It was busy, but the servers were quite friendly and efficient. The cafe is small, so be prepared to wait for a table at peak times. The chicken caesar salad is quite delicious. Don’t expect...traditional flavors, though. The full portion option made for a filling lunch. My wife had the coronation chicken and it was very flavorful. My teenage sons thoroughly enjoyed the penne bolognese. Park in the main lot for the Rock of Cashel, then walk to the cafe. Otherwise, there is only limited street parking. And don’t forget to bring cash as they don’t take credit cards. It was a 5 min walk to the nearest ATM. Overall, I highly recommend Cafe Hans.More

My wife and I stopped in for a light lunch at the Cafe and were blown away by the quality of the food and service. If we pass by this area again, we will be sure to stop in. Maybe, we will be able to...sample Chez Hans, as well. An award winning restaurant right next door.More

A small cafe with amazing food. Takes some time to be served but the food is worth the wait. Prices are decent and the helpings are generous. Strongly recommended

My husband & I were visiting a nearby town. We decided to drive to Cashel to dine in Cafe Hans. I had been there before and I remembered it as being first class and I had recent reports confirming that. From the outside it seemed...very quiet, but when we opened the door there was a buzz of activity. The restaurant was packed even though this was Thursday afternoon. One of the waitresses attended to us immediately and indicated the direction of where we could sit and wait. She assured that it would not be a long wait and true to her word it was not. We were the only two people waiting, however, in less that five minutes we were joined by seven other people. After a short wait we were called to our table. The waitress and waiters were very attentive and friendly. The food came quickly and it was delicious. There was a very friendly atmosphere and I would certainly recommend it.More

Small dining room, tiny bar stand make this cafe a very cozy place. No need to say that it was packed. Three waiters did great job serving quickly in a friendly manner. Chestnut soup, Caesar salad, lobster, cod - all was deliciously cooked and presented.

Thanks to a recommendation from an aunt we enjoyed a really delicious lunch in Café Hans. My husband had the burger & chips, and I had the salmon, crab and prawn roulade. The food was absolutely delicious, and although the roulade was on the 'starter'...menu it was a great portion and I was sufficiently full afterwards. The burger was MOUTHWATERINGLY DELICIOUS! Apart from the food, I must highlight the wonderful staff and how accommodating they were. We had our 10 month baby with us and we were immediately given a high chair and the staff were helpful with providing a changing mat (because the bathrooms are individual units there isn't room for a wall mounted changing unit but the mat was more than sufficient). If in the area GO TO CAFE HANS!!!!!More
