What the critics say

Two things came clear to me from this meal: first, that it's true -- the south and the west are the best places to find seafood done well; second that seafood is at its best when it's served as it is here -- simply and skilfully. Paolo Tullio, Irish Independent
What seafood restaurant would be complete without those old favourite, fish and chips? But here there’s a different slant – you get two types of fish. Smoked haddock and cod are cooked together in a beer batter and served with homemade chunky chips and pea and mint puree. Good Food Ireland
This is one of Ireland’s best seafood restaurants, and we don’t think you will be disappointed. Great food in a picturesque setting at very good value for money prices. Try it for yourself. Taste of Ireland 2017.
Try their Oysters with Murphy’s Stout (baked with stout and walnuts), followed perhaps by lobster (when in season). Alternatively there may be sea fish such as hake, pan seared and topped with a fresh herb salsa, Bantry Bay crab and Cashel Blue cheese – and their trademark Luxury Seafood Pie is always popular, all served with an abundance of fresh seasonal vegetables. Great value for money at lunch and on the Early Bird evening menu too. Georgina Campbell's Ireland
