Kinsale restaurants are really high quality, great food, great atmospheres, great chefs you cant really go wrong with a choice in this town. Except for this one, fishy fishy 'which used to be good. I dont know what has happened but on the evening we went the food was dreadful. I had a 'caesar salad' starter which I felt tempted to instagram as a joke. A few lettuce leaves , four croutons (I counted) a bit of dressing and parmesan powder. That was it. The ingredients must have cost a few cents, but as it turned out, this was the best dish! My fellow diner had a "seafood chowder" which was disgusting. A bitter aftertaste and quite inedible. We sent it back and the waitress suggested that as we weren't used to having a chowder with tomato and dill in it , we didn't like it . But no. It was just horribly flavoured and the chef should not have allowed it out of the kitchen. We had a side of chips which were dry and overcooked and calamari rings which were just OK., slightly on the soggy side. We asked for the bill, the waitress took the chowder of the bill for us and was very pleasant but the bill was still high for such a disastrous meal. The only upside is the Cocktail Bar above the restaurant which is fabulous with amazing balcony and great views of the harbour.
