Very slow, very small and definitely not "asian ". This place is another Chinese takeaway simple as that. Typical unhealthy Chinese takeaway food that is only very average. Service from the kitchen is slow and the food is over priced. Not recommended.

Fish and chips by the sea always taste good. Good for a snack or just a cup of coffee It's location affords views along the Ballyheigue beach. Behind it stands Ballyheigue castle. It's a simple restaurant in a beautiful location.

I recently went to Tides Cafe while staying on holidays in Ballyheigue. Excellent food and service. Very reasonably priced. Caters for gluten free diets. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Beautifully decorated and homely. Desserts mouth watering.

I think Tides are open from about 8am to 8pm for food. They do a wide range of food including breakfast sandwiches lunches and dinners.
