We stopped here for breakfast with hangovers. There were thankfully some greasy options. The prices were fair for being right in town and the food served promptly. We ordered pancakes expecting big fluffy dinner plate size but were sad when they arrived as they were actually crepes. I would go again and give it another chance. There is potential there.

Place is okay. Nothing to write home about. Got seated right away and asked the waiter for a pint right away, he actually said take a look at the menu and I'll come back to get your order. Really? WTF. I had been driving all day and was ready for my first pint. Oh well, let's see how it goes.... More

No better seaside dinner than a dine-in fish and chips in Dino's. Very friendly service, clean comfortable dining room, and perfectly fried fish! Hold out for a window seat;)

Each time we visit Kinsale our first meal is always at Dino's. First class food we are spoilt for choice. The fish dishes are the best but curries etc on menu are first class as are the desserts if you can manage one. A good selection of drinks whatever your taste. The staff are so welcoming and efficient,always a pleasure... More

On our port day in Cobh/Cork, our driver took us to Kinsale. He recommended a few different restaurants but when we saw the line for Dino's we knew we had found the right place. Funky, seaside decor with wonderful team service and tasty fish and chips. No greasy smell even with open concept kitchen. Kayleigl and the entire staff very... More

Kinsale is one of the prettiest towns in Ireland and a great tourist attraction however it is lao a tourist trap when charging for food. I was on a budget so Dino's was my option. Upgraded in recent years it an up market Fish and chip restaurant.

Dinos is located very close to harbour in Kinsale. It's a good old fashioned fish and chip shop. Every time we passed there were queues out the door which we could not resist joining ............. the wonderful smell was irresistible. My partner had the catch of the day - a large fresh haddock with crispy batter and home made tartar... More

Central location in the heart of Kinsale, Co Cork. Dinos is a family run restaurant with locally sourced fish and much more on the menu. Great value for all the family. Beautiful ship theme interior and great harbour views.
