Bad tempered owner. If this what Kenmare has to offer, we won’t be coming back. I felt sorry for the staff. They looked very unhappy. We left and went to The Smokey Pickle where we had a beautiful lunch and staff were lovely.More

Both of us were vegetarian and in need of a good feed after a long day of travelling. Were attracted In by the array of veggie options offered and had the perfect lunch which really hit the spot. We decided to go for breakfast the...next morning before we sat off and were similarly impressed. Was also jealous of the meat dishes on the menu which all looked fantastic.More

This was some of the best restaurant food we’ve had as a family in quite some time. I had the Teriyaki Cod which was excellent. Lovely spot, nice staff and very reasonable. Punches above it’s weight.

Had the full breakfast twice while in Kenmare and that says something in itself. Decent coffee too. Friendly service on top.
