This was one of, if not, the best seafood meal I’ve ever had in my life and I grew up on Cape Cod! The restaurant itself is quite small with a rotating daily menu. Highly encouraged to get a reservation so be sure to book...in advance. Also allows a nice break from the Guinness by pairing your meal with a bottle of wine. All meals were incredibly unique in flavors and fish.More

For such a small unassuming restaurant the food really was incredible. Everything really was so fresh and cooked perfectly. It was the best meal we had in Ireland. Book ahead though.

A unique place with the freshest fish!!! A new menu every day & always good. We have eaten there several times and have never been disappointed.

Excellent - 5 stars - but saw many people turned away because they hadn't made a reservation and it was packed. They will take reservations only after 4pm but believe me it is worth the trouble. Had excellent mussels to start and then lemon sole...and partner had black sole - both superbly cooked. Cheesecake dessert not to my taste (too much like a sponge) but you cannot fault the fish. Very good wines too. Pricey, but well worth it - great food, great serviceMore

The food was delicious for our group of 8 with a long list of available starters and mains all from the catch of the day. They were quite accommodating too, being able to split our large group into two tables. Wonderful service as well.

My husband & I recently stayed in Dingle on holiday & ate here every night. It's amazing! The staff are very friendly & helpful. It serves just fish & the menu changes daily. Beautifully cooked, beautifully served & the portions are very generous. We have...eaten here over a number of years & wouldn't go anywhere else. It's fabulous!More

Our friends with whom we are traveling made this reservation far in advance, as they have been here before. They serve only fresh seafood. The menu changes daily. The food is fresh and beautifully prepared and presented. For starters, everyone in our group had an...outstanding dish - fresh smoked salmon tartare, steamed mussels, pan seared John Dory filets with mushroom risotto, and tuna carpaccio. Each one was a winner. The same can be said for our entrees - Pan fried monkfish medallions with sauteed shrimp and the pan fried turbot fillet. We tried their rhubarb tart and it was ok, but not our favorite. Although, after all of our other wonderful starters and entrees, it may have just paled a bit in comparison. They also have a good wine list that is reasonably priced. So, if you going to Dingle, be sure to make a reservation here. You will not regret it.More

Our AirbnB host recommended this place. We had been travelling down Irelands west coast. Trying fish restaurants in Donegal, Clifden, Salthill and Limerick. Host told us to plan ahead to book this one. Quite tricky between day trips around Kerry. Finally got our reservation. You...have to phone between 11am through 4pm. Worth the hassle. One of the best we visited in Ireland. Assume it is easier to book out of season. Staff super friendly. Sat inside. We had great starters, salmon and superb moules mariniere. Hake, and black (equivalent of Dover Sole in Sussex/Kent?). Exceptional. Staff bring menu round. As certain items caught that day ordered staff wipe off the chalk board. Apple pie, and other desserts great, with ice cream and couli great too.More

Pleasantly surprised by quality of the overall meal. Had John Dory with saffron sauce -one of fresh specials- and loved the taste as well as presentation. Book ahead at least 48 hours if possible (online works). Tends to be noisy due to crowd in tight...quarters but manageable. Good wine and drinks list too. One of our best dinners in Ireland among many good ones. Enjoy.More

Definitely book ahead. Outdoor seating is only booked on that day (depending on weather), so walk over and make your booking as soon as you arrive in town. The food was excellent. I recommend the grilled scallops and local lobster.
