“A great place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

One of the restaurants recommended to us on a 3 day trip to Kinsale. A short stroll out of Kinsale (downhill on the way back!) This restaurant provided excellent food and very friendly staff. If you are lucky enough to get a table by the window there is a nice view over Kinsale. We went on a Saturday and it was very busy to advisable to book during busy periods.

“Best meal in Ireland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

We went on a recommendation from our hosts at the Perryville Hotel. Without doubt the best meal we had while on a ten day tour of Ireland. Very friendly and attentive service, the food and wine were excellent. Don't miss Man Friday when you visit Kinsale.

“Fantastic Delicious & Good Value Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Having been to most restaurants in Kinsale over the years, I had not yet the pleasure of having dined in Man Friday's. As a treat for the August Bank Holiday weekend we had a delicious, mouth watering and good value cuisine. It was mental busy on the Bank Holiday but the staff were really nice and most efficient. My husband had Seafood Chowder - scrumptious and I had Scampi with Sweet & Sour Sauce. We proceed to the Sirloin and Chicken, both delicious. Dessert was Fresh Strawberry Shortcake and Vanilla Ice Cream, both melt in the mouth. We were not in any way rushed. Despite the computer problems with the bill, it was a really enjoyable evening with fantastic food. We will definitely return, a must visit in Kinsale.

“Great selection of good quality ingredients served in a relaxed environment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Went there for a meal with family and from start to finish the service was relaxed and excellent, the food was uncomplicated but of the highest quality and we were made felt most welcome. Our table was for 14 and all courses were delivered without complication and on time. The staff were excellent and down to earth and always attentive.
