Fantastic food at affordable prices. This reminds one of what eating out should be like. Eggs benedict was great. Fries are proper fries that taste like potato.

What a great little restaurant. We had brunch. Eggs Benedict and made with great Gubeen bacon. Well put together, thoroughly enjoyed it. Some many places get this dish wrong, not here though. Great coffee with a delish scone as well. Reasonably priced, lovely staff, recommended.

Stopped here for a late Breakfast. Had the Egg Florentine and it was delicious and filling. I decided to have it with a side of black and white pudding and they only added to the flavour. My other half had the full irish and it looked filling. Good portions. Really nice place to stop for food bit on the small... More

Just back from our first visit to An Chistin Beag and it certainly won't be our last. Best Eggs Benedict I've ever tasted and the Full Irish was excellent too. Lovely staff, great service and looking forward to our next visit very soon.

Starters and main courses were excellent - just about had room for a shared dessert which was also excellent. Food is freshly prepared and is well worth waiting for although we didn't think it was much of a wait but some impatient people may think so! We just soaked up the atmosphere. Restaurant is quite small so make sure you... More
