The best fish I've ever eaten. Comes fresh from the sea in killybegs. Friendly staff. If your visiting killybegs it's a must to call in for some lunch. Excellent prices for amazing fish. Highly recommended

We had a nice fish and chips here one evening. No reservation needed. The breaded fish was crispy and non-greasy. Good service, and no nonsense food.

This is a great cafe in Killybegs to sample really good fish and chips. Chicken gluons are also on offer as are beef burgers but the quality of the fish supper is really good and inexpensive.

Fish so big it hangs off the plate. If you must order something else, then I highly recommend the Calamari. Everything is a good value for the size of the dishes. More locals than tourists.
