Fabulous location overlooking Kenmare Bay.Food is great and service very good.Would recommend the fish and chips . Lovely also on a sunny day to share an antipasta platter and glass of wine sitting outside admiring the view.

Great food well presented in delightful ambience by excellent staff with attention to detail. The South African Chenin Blanc was perfect with our varied seafood. Well done James and staff take a bow

The Chenin Blanc is lovely and a welcome change from the more popular grapes. We are looking forward to September when we embark on selecting the new wines for the list. Oh my head!!!!

Overlooking a breathtaking view of the bay with its islands plus right on a harbour. Nautical and boating theme obviously with emphasis on fish - super service from young enthusiastic staff. Not cheap so don't go looking to eat on a budget but good food...More

Fantastic spot for lunch, incredible food & lovely staff. Also great for kids with a great kids menu. Also a must for those who might enjoy a crisp g'n't... they have an extensive dedicated gin menu.

Lovely setting but somehow the restaurant missed the mark on the evening we were there. Here are our rankings of the places we enjoyed during our stay: Man Friday, Kinsale Josie's, Glanmore Lake Village Inn, Ardgroom Boathouse, Dromquinna Bistro, Eyeries
