Went here 9th June, ordered the fish chowder. We had 2 vegans in our party and they ordered veg stir fry. Have been here before and it was very good however this time the chowder just tasted like water. It had no dill, no mussels, no prawns just a few lumps of what tasted like frozen fish in a very thin watery soup. The waitress was lovely and when I told her we couldn't eat the chowder and why she was very apologetic. She came back and said she had told the manager of our complaint. After a 10 min wait it was obvious the manager was not even going to come and talk to us (they were not busy so he had no excuse) we asked the waitress if it was the same chef as our previous visit, she replied no. Service was brilliant but the food and managers response, disgusting. Still had to pay the 45 euro bill even though we couldn't eat our food.

Con’s Marina Bar & Restaurant has great views of Dinish Island and the Kenmare Bay. Inside it is quite stylish and bright.

For dinner we both chose the Kenmare Bay Mussels which were delicious, followed by Roast Kerry Beef and vegetables, but the best was yet to come - the desserts of ice-cream in a brandy snap basket.

Our experience was most enjoyable - this is where we had one of our better meals of our Irish trip.

Would not have tried Con.s had I not read the previous reviews and am really glad that I did. We were a large group pf 9 and each of us really enjoyed our meal. Our hostess was friendly and efficient and invited us to stay to listen to musicians who were to arrive later to entertain a large tour group. We did stay and thoroughly enjoyed the music and dancing. When the bill arrived we noticed that they had under charged and we pointed this out. A few minuites later 2 complimentary glasses of wine appeared....this was a lovely touch thank you!
