Just wonderful! It was the best all around meal we had in Dingle. Cute and tastefully decorated place with lovely staff and fresh seafood that tasted like it came straight from the boat. Recommend making a reservation as this place is popular with locals and...tourists.More

Amazing as usual, we always book a table in OOTB when we visit Dingle. If you love seafood, good wine and a great atmosphere then you need to try OOTB. Top class.

Being a passionate seafood person, I go as far as crabbing all summer and setting up my own oyster farm in my backyard so that I can have fresh oysters year round. This is one of the best seafood restaurants I’ve ever been to. The...oysters are so fresh that they rival the ones from my own beach. Everything we ordered were simply amazing, the squid, the shrimp and monkfish and the potato crusted fish. Extremely friendly service. Very reasonably priced for being on the Michelin list every single year. Just make a reservation and go! You will love it!More

We had a gorgeous evening two weeks ago, really lovely fresh seafood - interesting menu and our compliments to the staff - very professional, helpful and friendly... very glad we booked so far in advance. Quirky surroundings, but they fitted so well with the vibe....Also, good checking on Covid certs - we felt safe and respected.More

Gambas with garlic, chilies and pumpkin seeds over Angel hair, mussels marinieres, scallops flambe’, cod baked in potato. The freshest most delicious seafood you’ll find either side of the Atlantic! Friendly staff and it’s front and center in dreamy Dingle. ☘️

Better than Rick Stein’s seafood restaurant based on the turbot dish. Staff, ambience and food all top notch. As an after thought, the cheese board was a simple but excellent pleasure to top of the night.
