The staff were very friendly. The food is excellent. I had steak and was fantastic, you can taste the quality meat. Me and my wife go to Italy 3times a year for the last 12years and if you ask for garlic butter or any butter the people laughing. The restaurant have a very good selection of bottles wine and very good price, but the organic wine from the house is delicious. We back again.

My wife and I ate at this restaurant yesterday. The staff were poor, untrained and seemed apprehensive about any requests from us. All became clear later. We asked for garlic butter and to our surprise this was not available. No garlic butter in an Italian kitchen, very surprised. My steak arrived done the way the Chef likes and not the way I requested. The meat was tough and cut up in strips served with olive oil and potato wedges. The house wine was no better than average. The proprietor later approached us to say he would not amend or change his menu for any customer and we were free not to return to to restaurant. He seemed agitated. We had left the restaurant to finish our wine outside to free up a table for him for five customers, he did not notice this. This Chef has a valid point but he should teach his staff how to deal with customers. When offering steak, he should train his staff to say the dish is a speciality of Lucca or Tuscany, it is served in a certain way and is very popular. Instead of this the staff don't know what to say and he becomes agitated with the customer.

Called in for a dinner on our way back to Galway from the Burren. We had a really beautiful meal sitting outside enjoying the sunshine. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the food was reasonably priced. The Tide Full Inn is set in the beautiful town of Kinvara well worth the visit

A little bit of Italy in Ireland. Great Pizza and other italian specialities cooked by an italian chef from Lucca. On a warm night it's possible to eat outside, otherwise in the modern interior. We ate there twice, had fabulous Pizza the first time and excellent pasta the second. The home made cakes looked yummy but we were too full. Highly recommended. Service was a bit slow but it's not fast food, and the wait was worth it. The staff were delightful, - willing to chat and pass the time of day in best Irish fashion.

We enjoyed pizza from The TIde Full Inn twice during our recent vacation in the area. We ate once in the restaurant and once did take away. We have eaten lots of pizza in many places and thought the pizza from The Tide Full Inn was excellent.
