“i just ate too much! dont fill up on the bread!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

I was hungry when we sat down so had the yummy warm bread and oils etc - then my starter was salmon mousse and more bread (which was delicious) and the scallops were HUGE - my husband had the most amazing black pudding scotch egg with a warm soft yolk inside - it is more 'upmarket; and serious than anywhere else we ate in Bantry but fine for that - the food was so special but try to resist the bread and you will be able to enjoy more food!

“Did not meet expectations”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

I will admit clearly part of the problem was based on our high expectations, which were not created by the Establishment but by Reviews. From what we had read we were expecting a 5 Star and while the food and service were good , they were not "Really Good". The meal was Not average, it was good. Had seafood chowder and I had salmon and my wife had fish and chips. Good meal but not the best we had in Bantry. Sometimes expectations equals disappointment.

“Returning Customer”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

I think the food in O'Connor is fab, fresh and very tasty and their attention to detail is admirable. I have eaten here on a few occasions since my first review and I just wanted to say to the management that they should add a few starters. We have had starters only on one occasion and although nice they werent for us like scotch egg is different but an acquired taste is needed. Their starters when presented are great but they lack choice any may be too fussy and for someone that doesnt like seafood they would have no option at all. My suggestion would be a bruschetta, pate, crab cakes

Fantastic value for money meal.The staff were extremely helpful, friendly and efficient.My partner and i both had the early bird two course meal.My partner had the seafood chowder and i had the salmon mousse.The seafood chowder was a creamy seafood delight!The salmon mousse was delicious and served with a divine banana bread.We both had the mussels in white wine sauce.They were served with a generous portion of fries.The white wine sauce was superb accompaniment to the mussels. Overall a very pleasant dining experience, one definitely to be repeated.

“Top quality, decent prices, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We had a charming table for four where seatings created an alcove like setting. Food was really good, especially the oysters which were really tasty.
Decent prices given the quality of food.
Service was nice & pleasant.
