Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Nice is see this place doing well, full of local people when we arrived. It doesn’t take advantage of ripping off customers like many other restaurants in kinsale, especially at the minute. We just had lunch and coffee but what a Great value restaurant, with...loads of options on the menu. Well done to all involved.More

Best eggs Benedict I’ve had in some time, perfectly cooked eggs, crispy bacon and smooth, velvety sauce. Pancakes were light and fluffy, as they should be. Yes it is cosy, space is at a premium but the food is worth it. Have also had takeaway...of scones and sausage rolls which were exceptional. Next time I’m aiming for some of the delicious cakes.More

Wonderful experience while staying in Kinsale. Everything was prepared to perfection. The porridge with seeds was phenomenal. Not only was the food great, but the prices were fair and reasonable.

Popped in for a light lunch . It nice but all a bit squashed in inside and out but the cajun chicken wrap and the classic bagel were very nice as was my iced coffee on such a hot day. Friendly staff too and dog...friendly which is nice to see.More

We called in here really just with the intention of having a cuppa and resting our feet having been strolling around Kinsale. Well when we saw the food on display and coming out of the kitchen we all changed our minds. I couldn’t decide between...the black pudding sausage roll or the lemon meringue pie so I had both, which were excellent. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff and for the quality of food on offer good value. Highly recommendMore

Popped in here for pint and a sandwich after touring the church across the street. There are both interior and exterior tables, but we chose to sit outside since it was such a lovely day. Our food was delicious, the local brew exceptional and the...service fast and very friendly!More
