We were accommodated for an early sitting despite not having booked. The quality of the food was exceptional, freshly cooked seafood and seasoned beautifully.

Our first night in Dingle we ate at OOB. My wife said her scallops were among the best she'd ever eaten. My dinner was excellent also. The atmosphere is interesting and casual, the staff professional and friendly. This is a "don't miss" eatery.
