Based on Trip Advisor reviews we decided to eat there tonight. Two brothers co-own this place.The place is very small but nicely decorated. The service was good but the kitchen was somewhat slow. We waited 45 minutes for our food due to a large party ahead of us. Aside from that, the food was very good. We ate at Bull's Head the night before. Comparing the two, we would say the food was a tie.Both owners took a personal interest in the customers satisfication of service and quality of food. That goes along way with any customer. The only thing we noticed was that Trip Advisor reviews stated the price was $$ when it was more of a $$$. Bulls' Head was somewhat cheaper.Would we eat at either restaurant, yes we would.

Dingle is known for good food, and rightly so. Intending no disrespect to other establishments, our dinner at An Canteen was absolutely marvelous. We were astounded, although we should not have been, at how good it was. Every aspect was well thought-out and well-executed. Not only our best dinner in Dingle, but a contender for our best meal in Ireland.

It is hard not to keep going back to the An Canteen when in Dingle as the service and food are top class. We have dined in the restaurant 3 times now and when we are back in Dingle we'll be eating here. I will recommend An Canteen to everyone if you want a lovely meal in Dingle .We really enjoyed our meals here and had a good laugh with Brian & Niall. I loved the Hake but the John Dory was class, the best piece of fish I've had. Thanks Lads

First of all this place is off the beaten path; don't let that dissuade you. Dykegate Street parallels a street called "The Mall." The place is small, like 5 booths, maybe 10 tables. Where do I begin, the food... just amazing. I had the lamb steaks, my wife had the beef brisquet. Seriously, it's a one of a kind taste. The beef melts in your mouth, lamb was tougher than the beef but still soft, and so flavorful. Mushroom soup... Bam! I got to talking to the waiter, who is also the owner along with his brother. He works on the family farm right on Dingle peninsula, and yes, the lamb you eat is home grown! Such a fab meal, such great people. Service was excellent.
