Numerous visits to this fine restaurant which deserves all the excellent reviews it receives. It is consistently good with great choices, a decent wine list and fantastic service. Book to avoid disappointment. Worth a visit for a decently priced lunch also.

Call me an occasional customer. It had been a while this time. But everything was perfect. You are looked after like you are the only customer. My allergies not only catered for but provide opportunity for creativity. No airs and graces; service, ambiance, food, wine...More

We ate here on a Saturday night & were very impressed. We both had muscles for our main, huge portions & perfectly cooked. Its a small place so make sure to book ahead. Staff friendly & efficient. Would happily recommend.

No visit to West Cork would be complete without a meal at the Fish Kitchen. It's locally sourced fish is superb. The Bantry bay mussels are fantastic and the range of craft beers are beautifully paired. We'll be back! Just remember to reserve.

Susan, Apologies for not replying sooner. Our capacity is 28, and that's the only space we have. I could suggest Manning Emporium, or Dan Phils for a group this size. Neither would be a private room but you perhaps could... More
