“the best steak in the country!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Definitely one one of the best meals i have had in my life, the bar bar is fantastic, cosy in one corner and modern in the other with the bonus of a private restaurant in the left as you come in.. fantastic for tourists and families as all are catered for. Bar staff, waiters and waitresses are all welcoming and friendly! top noch service and great vibe about it! got talking to a member of staff called Pat who recommended many sights around the area to visit and always had a smile on his face.. highly recommend it for anyone going for the bantry marathon this weekend. and also to take the steak challenge, 32oz steak with all the trimmings! Prices are also excellent and well within anyone's budget!

“Fabulous Steak!”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal last night at "The New Willy Pas Restaurant" at Colamane Cross, Bantry. I have had so many steaks recently which were just not up to par at all, so it was with some tripidation that I ordered another one - this time my husband ordered a steak also, quite an unusually brave choice for him because he usually goes for chicken.

To say that the steak was the best we have ever had is an under statement - it was really quite delicious - everything about the meal was perfect.

I would absolutely and thoroughly recommend their steak - we will be back for more thank you!

“The food was wonderful!!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Willie Pa's has slowly been gaining a reputation as a bastion of food innovation. And I don't doubt that for a bit.
The restaurant is nestled amid the farms and fields of West Cork, a rather unassuming place that’s quite easy to miss on the Bantry/Drimoleague road, the interior will remind visitors of a time gone by with an old style butter churn (Which I loved) situated at the front door. The decor allows the simplistic beauty of the food to really shine, though beauty isn't the only thing bringing folks to Willie Pa's.

The restaurant buzzed with excited energy and was comfortably full with seemingly satisfied Easter Sunday patrons. The service in the restaurant was faultless the staff were very attentive and full of chat. The food was wonderful, so good in fact that we all had 3 courses. I had the mushrooms to start then the chicken and the Pa’s Apple crumble with custard and ice cream. A good selection of wines and beers were available also. Total around 25 euros per person so it was really good value. An added bonus was an Easter egg hunt that took place for the kids whilst we were there.
Though I would love to be selfish and keep Willie Pa's all to myself, the work of all the Chefs and management is too good to stay hidden for long. There’s no doubt a table at Willie Pa's will quickly become the hottest reservation in West Cork.

Stittyboy,

Thank you so much for your kind words! Every review we receive on TripAdvisor means the world to us but when we receive one from a seasoned reviewer as yourself it makes it that little bit more special. I am also so happy that the kids enjoyed the egg hunt! Hope to see you sson in Colomane again!!
