Excellent food and service. The seafood chowder is great. Nice homey atmosphere. The wine selection was better than expected. Freshly baked bread and cakes everyday. The lamb was amazing. Make a reservation.

The chowder at this restaurant was exactly what we wanted on a cold winter day in Dingle. It was just the right consistency, and the flavors were incredible. I with they would deliver to California! I guess we'll just have to go back : D

This place was brilliant. We eat in most of the restaurants on the main drag and this was by far the best.

We lucked out and got a table outside. Waitress was super friendly and attentive. Excellent mussels and great fish & chips. Well worth the visit. Note: Cash only.
