We ate here a couple of times on a summer break. The setting is wonderful and on a nice day there are a few tables outside to avail of. We had the Annascaul black & white pudding dish everytime with some sort of potato bread which had a lovely name but I've forgotten it. Service can be a bit slow... More

Me and my husband were so happy we came across this little cafe/restaurant. The views are so beautiful, the kids can feed the goats/chickens, the foods is so healthy and tasty and the staff, especially Aine herself are very welcoming. Would highly recommend a visit. Child friendly.

Stopped off on a rainy Thursday and cheered ourselves up with delicious Rhubarb tart and chocolate brownies. Lovely people and the welcome was warm. When the skies cleared, the view was magnificent. Lovely place to spend an hour and the fact that Murphy's ice-cream is served is an added bonus.

This read well so we dropped in for lunch on a wet day. We found the waitress a tad cold and unwelcoming. The food was fine, as in ok. We were rather disappointed really. We didn't bother waiting to have dessert or coffee. There was no atmosphere at all. I'd give it a miss.

Last summer, I had two lovely lunches here on the road between Slea Head and Ballyferriter. The food is all locally sourced, fresh, and perfectly prepared. The windows look out on the Irish coastline, and there are books that line the walls, many on the local history and language. This is a great place to stop after a visit to... More

We had a very ordinary meal here. 2 bowls of chowder, two bowls of plain pasta for our kids, some ice cream and some cake. Looking at the bill later we were charged €16 for two cups of ice cream, which we had ordered as 'small' (€4 each according to the menu) and some other prices were charged higher than... More

It seems you were charged twice for your ice cream, if you can send us your bill we will refund this. More

Stopped for lunch heading around Slea Head. Had the seafood special of the day. Simple tasty food at a reasonable price. Fantastic location overlooking the sea waiting for whales to show themselves.
