Having been in Kilkee all day and realising we had a long drive back we thought we would try this restaurant as it looked good. Manageress really did her best to fit us in at short notice and we are so glad she did. The food was amazing, hake, mussels and catch of the day all well cooked and amazing chips. Staff were all friendly and efficient. OK so it wasn't a cheap meal but it was totally worth the money. Would go back in a flash if we weren't back home in England now! And what an amazing view.....

Had some fish cooked and served in a paper wrap. O M G it was divine. Loved the wines recommended to go with it.

Nice friendly bistro but prices are more in line with fine dining. Decor and layout also very much in the bistro style, but mains averaging 24 euros and some starters at 11/12 euros equate to a restaurant it's not.

The menu was varied and lots to choose from. The food was mixed, great bread, lovely chips, excellent starter of prawns and main course of chicken. However the "specials" hake was a little flavourless and the brownie desert was very average. Again crab claws were ok'ish. The staff were lovely. Nice view overlooking the bay.

Is the strand putting up the reviews themselves? I have read the other reviews and people think this is a place with quality food and staff!!!! They must not get out much is all I can say. As for the strand proprietor stating that the the closing of the kilkee beach will affect his business, well he he is doing a great job of that himself with his shabby food and rude staff.
