Our host at a b&b told us about this restaurant. He explicitly said it does not look like much from the outside - he was right. But open the door and walk into the best smoked salmon you will have! Ours was "dyed" with beet juice and was exquisite. We enjoyed the wine list which allowed each of us to... More

We walked in without reservations and were seated at a nice table for 6. Four of us shared two bottles of white wine, and my husband and I ordered a local red ale each.

This is the place to go if you want some seafood. The fish is always fresh and extremely tasty. The staff are friendly and professional and it's a lovely restaurant overlooking Dingle harbour.

Went to out of the blue for dinner over the Easter weekend. Quite a good selection on starters and mains. Ordered lobster bisque for starter and black sole for main, both were excellent. My wife has tuna cerviche and sea bass also excellent. Cannot fault the food.

If they don't have fresh fish they don't open. We've got sea bass, baked hake, oysters, chowder. Everything was excellent.

Charming building and staff. However, the food lacked soul. Fresh yes, but no oompf. And pre-prepared side salads (grated carrots, a lonely lettuce leaf) are rarely a good sign however fresh the main ingredients.

From the outside this looks like a seaside cafe but once inside you will find lovely fresh seafood. The inside is not plush but is very comfortable. Fisherman family owned and run so you are guaranteed the freshest food. Try it you'll like it.
