Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Delicious menu, spoilt for choice! I went for the quiche special of the day butternut squash, pesto served with a taster of salads. Very tasty!! Loved the decor, atmosphere was buzzy and service was friendly and prompt!

Sat for 20 mins without any staff approaching so left. Maybe pay more attention to customers on entry. I guess it was busy but this doesn't excuse bad service.

Lovely food, lovely restaurant but unfortunately for us it was very busy, had to wait to be seated, left standing & no one came to ask us or let us know how long we would need to wait, eventually walked out to find another restsurant...in Schull. Great food but terrible serviceMore

I love Budds. I went today with my 2 year old and partner for my birthday. Always a warm atmosphere and food made with love. We are vegetarian and lots of options. Such a joy to eat a masala dosa while listenning to the Smiths,...only down the road from us. Birthday highlight! Thanks Budds x.More

Friendly, professional staff, bright restaurant. First time eating there. Tried something new. Light pancake, lightly spiced potato filling, interesting sauces on the side. Attractively presented.

Great food and great coffee. Lovely spot to sit and chill for brunch or lunch. Menu changes up which is cool. We have been nearly every day for our coffee! We had a very bad experience with the other coffee place beside budds as they...were very unfriendly and budds team were sound so that’s a win!More

My husband and I were visiting the west Cork and we decide have a lunch in the Budds. It was a adorable choice, my husband had a delicious burger and I had a very good hake and baked fish.

Had breakfast this morning in Budds, and it was just as good as I remembered from my visit last year. Delicious local produce imaginatively used. Such lovely friendly staff. A little gem, worth a detour.
