On the face of it, that's all it is. But it is wonderfully put together, effortlessly. Great local produce, friendly atmosphere in a wonderful location. If you're not a snob and like good quality sea food with chips on the side, then make sure you visit whilst in kenmare. Pop over to the Horse Shoe after for a pint of Black once you're done. The owner is great character too. Enjoy

Great wee place! Quite small and intimate! I had the scampi which was absolutely beautiful! Whole family enjoyed it. Great night, apart from an irate customer that could just never pleased no matter how hard staff tried! Very friendly staff and great prices for such beautiful food!

This restaurant advertised the best fish and chips on its blackboard...We tried it and the proprietor is not boasting unjustifiably. My wife had the cod and I had the plaice --- the batter was light and fresh...and everything was fried in rapeseed oil, which makes it all so much lighter.

I really recommend this Kenmare gem.

N.B.: Guinness - a must with your seafood - is available only in draft-flow cans.

Stopped in on the recommendation of Irish friends and were not disappointed, to say the least. Jim was running short-handed but managed to welcome, serve and provide wonderful conversation about music, poetry, the Gaeltacht and more. The fish and mussels were extremely fresh, well prepared and delicious. Highly recommended!

Chosen because it had standard cod / haddock / salmon and chips and also a smoked salmon salad. Delighted to find the special was John Dory and it was excellent. Very good value for money and this was reflected in its popularity. Expect to wait for a table but you don't have to wait long
