Stayed overnight in Keel & came here purely by happy accident. I had mussels to start, which were large & flavourful. Main was monk-fish cooked to perfection. It is slightly more expensive but with the fantastic food & equally fantastic service well worth it in my opinion. Special shout out to Michelle, who was very attentive and knows her stuff,... More

We ate here both evenings of our stay in Keel. The staff are helpful and welcoming and the food is excellent. The specials change regularly and there is a great choice of mostly seafood but meat dishes are offered too. The seafood chowder was particularly good. We enjoyed everthing we ate and the wine was good too. On the Saturday... More

Fish and chips had a crispy, light batter as did the garlic mushrooms. Plaice was light and delicate. Food was got and flavorful. Staff were young but very attentive. Would return in a heartbeat!

One hour waiting when tables stayed empty the all evening. Fishes were very good but the sides were just ok. A little too expensive.

On our last visit we were served by a young girl called Michelle. She has a wonderful manner dealing with people and has a smile for all. The... More

The restaurant has a great location. We got a table overlooking the water and the beautiful hill across. The menu looks promising and the food we had was ok but not what I expected from a dedicated fish restaurant and with those prices. When the waiters clean the table they where unfortunately to drop several plates, knives and fork down... More

We had dinner at The Chalet while staying in Keel on Saturday, June 25th. There were 12 of us in the party at a long table overlooking the water view. Great surroundings. Good, friendly service. Delicious meals for all. We would definitely return to The Chalet.

We walked a couple of minutes down from our B & B to the Chalet. We liked the decor and sea view. This is definitely the place for seafood lovers. We had chowder to start, enormous steaming bowlful of varied seafood and veg in thick creamy sauce. Next was the beer battered cod, two pieces each and more chips than... More

Found this restaurant to be very overpriced for what you get. Went there with husband and children. My husband and I ordered fish main courses and were shocked when we saw how small the portions were. We were given one tiny bowl of veg between us. We were still hungry after meal and we actually continued on to a much... More
