When we first arrived there we admired the spectacular sunset on the bay...simply breathtaking. We had a drink outside and ordered our food while waiting for our table to be ready then headed inside. The restaurant is all pink both outside and inside, very cosy and with personality. Loved the colourful piano! The food is gorgeous! Fresh, very well prepared... More

Despite the typically Irish weather the food here really brightened our day! A unique and very relaxed setting with beautiful views (depending on the weather!) and absolutely fabulous food. From steaks and burgers to fresh fish dishes, everything sounded lovely and we enjoyed a delicious meal! Highly recommended! We've been back many times!

An amazing location with great views as you eat. We were made very welcome from the start. Great food with good specials available as well as main menu. The big garden makes it kid friendly as our boys were able to stretch their legs after dinner. Cant fault

Everybody goes there on a Sunday afternoon to have a tea, beer or anything else. You can sit outside and look over the coastal green or inside later and have a nice dinner - maybe the excellent Irish Stew.

The location of the restaurant is hands down the best thing about it, especially on a sunny day like we had when we visited. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The waitresses we dealt with were professional and pleasant so definitely no complaints from us in that regard. The menu is just standard though, nothing to really get... More

The restaurant lies bear the coast in Kilbrittain. Beautiful surroundings and wonderful view on the sea. Inside it's cosy. Good, very friendly service. Besides the menu there are daily specials, mainly fish. We had a special with John Dory. Well prepared and served with potatoes , spinach and mushrooms. Very tasty, although a bit salty. The wine list is ok,... More

Arrived at Seafield house B&B late. Our innkeeper recommended the restaurant and drove us over and later picked us up. I had read good recommendations about The Elephant and we were not disappointed. Great service also. And it is Pink!

What an unexpected treat! We decided to pull out camper van into the Dunes at Harbourview. Checked what was nearby and came across this gem a few meters up the road! Food was delicious! Perfectly cooked rare steak and chicken liver pâté! Partner had lobster! What a gem...with a beautiful view!
