“please avoid!!!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We came for lunch by mistake it was just pure slapped on food...roast beef was just slapped on the plate and my husband tried the evening menu and just pure microwaved food. its just not a place that you will visit....

to see the dirt of the place one has to look inside the kitchen from the toilet end you will know what i am talking about...boxes of chips on the floor and the chef is picking up from the floor and cooking it...
I was going to report to the health board but why waste time on a place like this. Chefs smoking outside in chefs jacket..... its a place that you want to go and risk your health.

Avoid!!!

Sally.

“Paragon Bar-The Best Around”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

I work in Skibbereen and eat in This Bar everyday as it is without doubt the nicest place to have a meal...Breakfast,Lunch or Dinner.. The food is just amazing,big portions with a lovely taste, The menus are impressive with a choice of pretty much everything! The staff are always plesant and will always make time for there customers although they are always busy,I would highly recommend you call in if ur looking for quality food and service,I for one will continue to support a great Bar.

“Not a "paragon" of Virtue”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Went for lunch recently with my Partner, the staff were great but the food was utterly utterly vile, long wait , just about warm, beef which managed the interesting trick of resembling both rubber and leather at the same time, not a lot of it , which under the circumstances was a blessing in disguise, the whole thing not helped by the slobbering drunks which wander about at will. Vastly overpriced. Avoid at all costs.
