We visited this place on our way to Cliffs of Moher. The definite drawback is the lack of free tables when there are a lot of tourist buses and the necessity to queue. Everything gets a bit stressful and people get nervous especially under time...More

We are a quick lunch here on Saturday over a long weekend in August 2017. They only served three dishes, the food was decent but the service was really poor. We'd likely chance somewhere else before we chose to come back here again.

A very good value for money and a team very available and at the same time discreet. And what about food? Delicious! We tested the mussels which will remain the best we have ever eaten!

Chervil Restaurant had excellent food. This was the most upscale place I ate during my entire 11 days in Ireland.

The hubs and I were starving after spending time at the Cliffs, so we stopped at Chervil for their massive platter of fish and chips. It didn't disappoint. I wouldn't rave over the "chips," but he fish was flaky, fairly light, and just what we...More
