“Not to be missed”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

We have eaten here both as a couple and as a family. On each occasion we have not been disappointed, consistently excellent food and service. If there is a long wait you will be informed of this and offered a place at the bar of the option to come back when less busy. The food is excellent and we usually opt for the crab claws for a starter or the crab meat on brown bread and the hot and cold for a main course. A dessert menu would be a treat but not necessary as you are usually full after the starter and main course.

“The best seafood in the world.”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We have literally eaten is some of the best seafood places in the world, and nothing is ever better than here. It always amounts to comparing any seafood to the menu here!! I wish we didn't live so at away so we could causally go regularly. Once a year isn't enough. Hopefully see you next summer! The freshest food, fantastic atmosphere and great location.

This review is one which amounts to returned visits over the last 7 years.

“The point”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Very easy going, laid back place with very much a pub vibe rather than an eatery. Fish was sterling, service was prompt and polite. Views (on the right day) are great and I very much liked that the management took the time to have a chat with everyone including, what seemed, like a steady stream of friends who came in for a chat.

“Wow!”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Fish that tasted as though it had jumped out of the sea onto the plate. The hake was delicious, just the lightest of flour coating that allowed the taste to shine through. Although this was a lunchtime snack this was fine cooking that compared with the best. The service was excellent, the welcome sincere.and the views of Valentia and the car ferry on a fine October day made it a special meal.

“Great food, great hostess and great craic!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Bridie the hostess made sure we were well cared for. Awesome seafood with delicous crab meat and crab claws as appetizers shared between the five of us, so good we order extra. Our etrees varied from more crab claws, fresh hake and morkfish cooked with chilis and without to a seafood platter. We sampled each others dishes and every dish was delicious with the hake just edging out the others.
Bridie made sure we just made the final ferry back to Valentia well fed and very content!
