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.

Our other dinner reservation fell through, we're glad it did! This restaurant was way better. Friendly staff, delicious food options. I had the roast chicken - perfect for my craving and served with broccolini! my husband had the fresh hake fillet. Fish and Chips were...a hit with my teen son. My family enjoyed our meals, save room for dessert! The pavlova was a dreamy light cloud with fresh berries. Restaurant was full of locals, which to me signals a treasure spot to dine.More

We had a great experience here. The restaurant is beautifully decorated both inside and outside. The menu has a wide selection and the portion sizes are huge and great value for money. I can recommend the monkfish curry which was a special on the night...I was there. It was so delicious and I still think about it today! The service was good too and the waitresses were very friendly and accommodating.More

The front of house staff was very welcoming and friendly, efficient and friendly and our waitress was great too. We had soup to begin, accompanied by gorgeous homemade brown bread and proper butter. Dinner was Scampi, OMG they were divine, so fresh, juicy and tasty...and HUGE! My companion had red Thai monkfish curry which was unbelievably good, I’m having it next time 😋 lovely salad with the scampi, good sized portions this place is a discovery! Finally, they do a really good pint of Murphy’s too.More

Checked out a few places in Kinsale as we were staying nearby. Reviews looked good so we reserved( recommended) and were very impressed. The food quality was excellent, service was good and every member of the team covered everyone. Not a huge place but does...have a terrace on the street. Look at the menu, everything we had was excellent and in the end was reasonably priced compared to other more tourist trap types of places with much better food.More

Pre-booked this restaurant for a recent trip to Kinsale. Staff were friendly and service very good. We both had a 3 course meal, everything was delicious. The chowder was excellent and the main course of hake with potato was fantastic. Best fish we have ever...eaten, it was so fresh! Potato dish was so tasty too.More

I had a three course meal here with my girlfriend a few weeks ago. I had the chowder to start which was rich and creamy with plenty fish. My partner had the sticky asian wings that were sweet and savory and a nice change from...the usual hot wings affair. We both had lamb shanks for mains. Meat was falling off the bone and could be eaten with just a fork if you wanted. Vegetables were well cooked. Very little conversation was happening when the mains came out which is a good sign! Deserts were, a sticky toffee pudding, more cake like in texture but still decadent and a cheesecake that contrasted nicely being creamy and tangy. Wine was excellent, It was a menu recommendation to pair with red meat. The waitress was incredibly friendly and energetic. All in all I would highly recommend to anyone coming to Kinsale! Almost forgot, the bill came to under 100 euro which is great value for the area.More

Visited as a couple so not sure. As others have said it’s quite small and there were no children in the restaurant that evening.
