Fabulous - we were in Dingle for 3 nights and ate here every night, we decided the food and staff were so good what was the point in going elsewhere. Each meal we both had was very good and the lobster was one of the...best I have had anywhere. We would like to thank Melanie and John for making our visits memorable, having said that all the staff were friendly and attentive.More

The food was fresh and bursting with flavour! It was cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. I would highly recommend! I couldn't decide on what to get so I got a few starters so that I could try a bit of everything. I'll have to go...back to try the mains! The staff were so nice and friendly too it really was a fantastic evening. The wine is definitely over priced but that is the only negative thing I have to say. Fantastic restaurant!More

Our last night in Dingle, I made a reservation for dinner for myself, my brother & sister in law. From other reviews, I expected a stellar evening. We arrived promptly at our reservation time. We seemed to be the only patrons, but enjoyed the quiet...atmosphere. I asked our server for two checks. From there the evening went downhill. Our small dinner salads were totally average (greens, pickles?, tomatoes, onions with house dressing). The problem was that some of the greens were wilted & slimy. I pointed this out to our server, who said she would bring it to the managers attention. My Main course was prawns & potatoes. Potatoes were good. Prawns should be large shrimp. These were small at best & swimming in garlic butter sauce vs menu advertised "chili and garlic prawns." I asked for the Manager, Sean Roche, & explained my lack of satisfaction with these two issues. His words were," prawns can be any size & that he was advised of the stale greens." In addition, after we requested our check, it was not split as requested. We were never offered coffee or dessert. Our server said that it was rude to question the food or lack of service as rationale to not offering coffee or dessert. . I am astounded & fully understand why this establishment had such a low turnout. I will never return nor recommend this sub par establishment. This evening meal was a big disappointment.More

One of our favourite meals of our trip to Dingle. The food here was absolutely delicious but the visit was only made so much better by the friendly and helpful staff. Service was so good, I didn’t catch the staff members names but from general...chit chat to recommendations, they are wonderful at their jobs. We thoroughly enjoyed all our dishes, Scallops and crab cake for starters, seafood risotto and salmon for mains. We tried some grilled oysters on the side and had creme brûlée for dessert, both were very very good! We will definitely be recommending. Thanks to Doyle’s for a lovely mealMore

I would highly recommend Doyle's. We ordered small plates of food tapas style and they were out of this world. Compliments to the chef Sean. We will be back again. Maria and Sean

I booked here as my husband loves seafood. I didn't have high expectations as I'm vegetarian and get used to obligatory boring options. Well how delighted I was that Doyles tickled the old tastebuds with melt-in-the-mouth options. My starter was the most incredible chargilled broccoli...taco with a magical combination (I'm not joking) of herbs and dressing. Absolutely amazing. I inhaled it and then my main was a gorgeous spring herbs risotto with fresh peas. So light, creamy and tasty. My husband was equally happy with his options. The restaurant was packed to the brim and is obviously a favourite with the locals. Even though it was so busy, the staff were brilliant, super friendly and efficient and couldn't have been more helpful. Highly recommend.More

I guess you’d call me boring. I guess you’d call me old. But I still maintain - this is the best restaurant that I have ever been to. In my working life I travelled extensively, and my job insisted I eat at top restaurants but...I have never eaten in one quite as good as Doyles. COVID kept us from his doors for nearly three years but that didn’t stop Sean Roche from honing his profession. We even arranged our trip around their opening hours so as not to be disappointed. And disappointed we weren't. How can a restaurant have this level of quality from top to bottom? We started with crab claws and the braised beef. Crab claws are often filled with majority crab but my wife pointed out that this was ALL crab. It was magnificent. She usually gives me a taster but not this time. It was ALL hers. The menu was slightly different this time with several smaller dishes that can be taken as a sort of a tapas menu. This was the case with my starter. The braised beef just fell off the fork and melted like butted in my mouth but with all of the flavour of aged meat. It was sensational. Yes, boring, but the seafood linguine the best in the world - period. The different flavour each individually distinguishable cooked to perfection and the after-sauce (spoon cleverly supplied) was a meal in itself. Just enough room for handmade ice-cream deserts served commendably to perfection by the knowledgeable waiting staff. The staff are all part of the excursion to culinary delight and always observed COVID regulations. Was it just me? No. Every person leaving the restaurant said now great the food and service was so I'm not on my own. I can't wait to return. Any chance you could come work in Suffolk Sean?More

Fantastic dinner, superb wait staff, and charming atmosphere. Of course, we had to start with Dingle whiskey cocktails--a couple types distilled locally. Our appetizers included a generous portion of mussels in a delicious broth and amazing, tender scallops. Hake over mashed potatoes and seafood risotto...were our main courses--great choices! We finished with a shared vanilla-white chocolate creme brulee with a sculpted scoop of raspberry sorbet. Everything was so delicious and beautifully presented. Doyle's gets our highest rating and strongest recommendation!More

We had a delicious meal of oysters, seafood linguini, hake, muscles and several other seafood dishes. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and the service was impeccable. We enjoyed a wonderful evening and would definitely go back.

I made them the night before...,I'd gone in without a reservation and was told I'd have to wait an hour or more so decided to come back the next night with reservations. Well worth the wait!!!
