My husband and I had high hopes for this restaurant as it came highly recommended. However, it didn’t take long for our hopes to fade. Small restaurant and we were seated by the door, which would have been ok if the loud techno music wasn’t...right above our table. Warm white wine and lousy tasting beer (usually from not cleaning the taps). How can you serve lousy beer in Ireland?? My husband ordered the fish chowder, which was horrible so he didn’t eat it. I had the fish and chips, which was bland, but I ended up eating it anyway, but smothered in fresh lemon. We paid our bill and ended up going elsewhere so my husband didn’t go without dinner. Wait staff? With the exception for one lovely waitress, the others couldn’t care less about what was going on. I’ve had some amazing fish and chips in Ireland and will write about one of the best I had in Kinsale. This experience and meal was the worst! This restaurant is running on it’s name and chasing the tourists. Want a good meal in Dingle? Go elsewhere!More

We didn’t have a reservation but were able to get a corner booth. (Probably because it was a Tuesday night in early May) Delish food and great service.

My family and I were in Dingle to celebrate me and my husband's elopement and we popped in here for dinner on our first night in town. They were really accommodating of our group of 8 and the service was great. The food was excellent...- I had the day's roast and it was fantastic. All around the table the food was enjoyed. The drinks were great - we had some of the local Dingle brews and ciders. Would definitely go back next time in Dingle.More

€6.90 for a pint is very expensive. Normally pay around €5.50 for the same beer around Dingle, even in the Brewery pub ! The drinks menu outside the pub indicated €6 for the same pint which I saw as I sat down so felt doubly...ripped off.More

Went with friends. Food very average. Waiter forgot some of the food ordered. Beef casserole very tasteless. Flambe prawns with the flambe. Won't be returning.

Popped in here with kids and needed a quick bite. Service was very prompt and the waitress was lovely and really helpful. We had the most amazing chowder, probably the best I have had, and I would be fussy. My husband agreed it was the...best we have had. My fussy 2 year loved it too. Real big chucks of fish and just so tasty. My only complaint was the tea tasted a bit funny, maybe it was due to the water. Will be back again to try other dishes.More

We were in Dingle for a few hours last week and I was a little hungry so we decided to go in here because we saw that there was room inside for us. The young lady gave us our menus straight away and she was...very friendly and efficient. The pub seemed to be very clean and tidy. We decided we'd share the prawns dish with a side of fries. We also had a couple of drinks. The food was absolutely delicious. We were very comfortable during our time here and were only sorry that we had a drive ahead of us, or we'd have stayed longer. Highly recommended.More

A group of us were in Dingle last night for our best friends hen party and we just wanted to say how amazing the staff were and how accommodating they were for everything. The finger food up to the house was perfect and there was...so much, we were so impressed and everything down to the small touches of the jellies with the Prosecco was lovely. Keith couldn’t have been better to us. His service was so professional and attentive and we couldn’t be more grateful. Also Brian was amazing and made our organising it all the easier. He couldn't of been more helpful. All the staff we came across were lovely. Aine had the most amazing night and we just wanted to say thank you for letting us sing sievnamon 7 times 😂 we will definitely be back again. Also the dinner and drinks were absolutely beautiful 😍More
