This place is way overhyped, we were so disappointed. Do not waste your money here as the food quality was about the same as standard banquet fare, and the service was poor. It felt like they were in the business of turning and burning tables and had no care or connection to their food or their customers. We complained about... More

We heard about Fishy Fishy before our trip to Ireland, and had seen a video of the owner, Martin. That alone was enough to tell us that we had to make a stop here. It is, in fact, the main reason that we spent the day in the Kinsale area. The restaurant itself appears as a typical seaside town kind... More

Had and excellent meal in Fishy Fishy. High end food, without the pretentiousness. Bright and airy dining room. Had starters and mains, both of which were delicious and of wonderful quality. Locally sourced produce and great pride taken in their locality via produce and art pieces in the restaurant. Great meal all round, and good value for the high quality... More

My boyfriend and I went for dinner in Fishy Fishy over the weekend and found the food absolutely delicious, we could not fault it at all. Best fish we ever had! However we did find that the service was not up to scratch. We had to flag down a waitress to have our main course plates removed after they were... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here. The seafood was incredibly fresh. We shared the smoked salmon plate and the seared scallops. Everything was DELICIOUS! If we didn't live in the states we'd go here all the time. Service was great and prices were reasonable. The village of Kinsale is adorable and totally worth visiting.

My wife and I were told by friends not to miss Fishy Fishy. We were not disappointed, and my wife's dish was the best by a long shot, making it fabulous because mine was great. She had the Thai Prawn meal which was out of this world. A great location, and a great casual atmosphere. Make sure to make reservations.
