I've eaten here a few times and decided its time to write a review at last as I have had good experiences on each occasion.

What I love is the simplicity of the menu. While it may appear limited it manages to offer something for everyone...be it pasta, steak,Mexican or fresh fish!

The desserts are awesome as well so leave room for these!

One point worth noting is that this restaurant offers good VALUE for money which is very rare in kinsale. Please don't change this as I have seen happen in so many nice restaurants where the portions dwindle and the prices rise.

Thank Fangdoc

Our party of eight including four kids were planning to get dinner for the kids at the Shack. The adults were not eating as we had a dinner appointment later that night. We had hoped to enjoy a glass of wine while the kids were fed. The owner told the very helpful waitress that we could only come in If we were all eating. Unbelievable!! The restaurant was completely empty and yet the owner refused our business. We took our business elsewhere. We passed the restaurant at 8 and there was still only four people in there. It was closed when we passed on our way home at 10.15. As two business owners in our party we could not believe that an owner would throw business away like that. As regular visitors to the fantastic town of Kinsale we expect that The Shack will not be there on our next visit given the owners business practices. This is especially so when you consider the other fantastic dining options available.

Visited The Shack 7 years ago when in Kinsale on holiday and the food was superb, just returned for a second visit and glad to say it was just as good. Had a very tasty Mexican King Prawn dish and hubby had beef burrito, they were both excellent, the service was great and the staff friendly, would definitely recommend.
