“Superb food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

We dined here whilst on holiday from the UK and it was a good choice.We arrived just after a large group had left but everything seemed to be under control and running smoothly. We chose from the early bird menu which was excellent. My husband chose daube of beef and said it was incredible, meltingly tender. It was obviously popular as they had run out, as was the case with the lamb, but they quickly accommodated with another choice - duck, which was delicious. Presentation was top notch. The desserts were sublime, the staff friendly and efficient and the décor was beautiful. All in all, a terrific evening.

“Disappointing food & poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

We paid big money for what should have been an excellent meal in this restaurant at the bank holiday weekend. It was to celebrate a birthday & we both love good food so we were very disappointed.
There were several short cuts; some of our food had definitely been pre-cooked to the point that it tasted poor when it arrived on our plate. The oysters however were excellent.
There was no genuine welcome from the staff, instead they appeared to be just going through the motions. We simply didn't feel it was worth the money. No reason to go back. Such a shame really as it would be nice to have a a few more dinner options in Dingle. But I'm not prepared to pay Dublin prices in a restaurant where the food & service is very mediocre.

“Amazing food - fab restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed the most amazing dinner yesterday evening in this truly scrumptious restaurant- this should be a Michelin star restaurant!! - the attention to detail on every dish means you are eating "art on a plate" - delicious! thank you for a fab evening- see you soon ;)

“Great dinner”

My wife and I just had dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was my wife's favorite restaurant of the 8 we sampled throughout the west and southwest. I also enjoyed it. Would return.

“Great food, locally sourced and chemical free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

We went there to celebrate our daughter's 30th birthday as we were staying in Dingle. We had heard it was an excellent place to eat. It was and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
The staff were very pleasant too.
Another plus is that we were a large group including some young people and children and we were able to have an excellent early bird menu - delicious choice and excellent value.
We were all very pleased.
You have to book though - this is a popular place.
