We had a fantastic time at the High Tide for my friends hen party. The food and drinks were amazing and the service was fantastic. Fionnuala was a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend!

Had dinner for two here. Very well organised and adhered Covid procedures. As for the food, Caprice salad was ample as was the Thai mussels accompanied with a This broth. For mains an excellent Thai chicken curry and a 10oz Rib Eye beautifully cooked with...mash and broccoli. A shared Tiramisu completed the meal. Good selection of wines at reasonable prices.More

Recently had a meal with four of my business partners in high tide. I've had meals all over the world and safe to say this was up there with the best of them. Ross the head chef made sure we were looked after all night,...the food was exceptional and the service was second to none highly recommendedMore

Fantastic food, fab service, well worth a visit. The lighting is very inviting. Ate here during a visit to Kinsale and it didn’t disappoint. Very generous portions. We sat outside and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the whole experience.

Cannot say enough great about this little gem of a restaurant. Staff, especially the manager who was outstanding and so genuinely friendly, run a great restaurant and the food is delicious. Def worth a return visit.

Had lunch, table available outside, friendly staff and good menu. Had the Chowder and house red wine, chowder was lovely but I found the brown bread too heavy. All in all I enjoyed my meal and would certainly want to try an evening meal.

Been to this restaurant a good few times when there was dining indoors and it was always excellent. We sat outside recently and were delighted to discover that their dining area is a perfect sun trap... we were there until about 9.30pm and it was...still cosy. Thai mussels are tremendous 🤤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.
