Enjoyed a fantastic meal at The Fish Kitchen in Bantry. The food was excellent, especially the oysters. I hadnt eaten Hake for a long while and it was calling out to me from the specials board.I wasn't disappointed. Well cooked and very fresh. Wine menu had a good choice of wines as well. Very reasonable prices and will definitely visit again on my next visit to Bantry.

Excellent meal here - fresh seafood was all perfect. Good service also - only complaint is maybe it is so small you are very close to tables and everyone can hear what is going on - but other than that would definitely recommend.

We were invited here to join friends who live near Bantry as they had heard good reports.

We were certainly not disappointed by the food - some really exceptionally fresh and well cooked fish dishes. As the restaurant is situated above the local fish shop this is not surprising.

Prompt and friendly service. It is small and booking is essential. We will certainly return on our next trip to West Cork.

This place was a great surprise. Our meal was really tasty, affordable and obviously fresh off the boat seafood. Great bistro style atmosphere, nice waitress. Cheap wine, and a great selection of craft beers. Prawns with chorizo... Unreal!

Another gem of a restaurant in the south west. Cork has some truly excellent seafood to offer and service to match, something we could learn more about in Dublin for sure.

Less intimate that O Connors across the way but notwithstanding it promoted a very good atmosphere and encouraged interaction with partons at tables in close proximity to us which was fun.

My wife chose the chowder this time and the salmon which were both devoured eagerly. I chose the chorizo and prawn starter which was immaculate followed by the lobster which was sensational. The staff were very friendly in aiding us make our selections and choosing suitable wines to compliment our choices which was a nice touch.

Overall a very good experience, the food is top notch. If you are after a more romantic meal I'd choose O'Connors but there is little or no difference to me in the quality of food in both - they are excellent and a credit to Bantry
