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.

I recently retired as an importer of high quality grassfed beef. During the past 40 or so years I’ve sampled steaks in hundreds of restaurants worldwide, in Argentina, Uruguay, Brasil, Canada, USA, Ireland, UK, etc. The ribeye I had last night in Finns Farmcut was...in terms of texture, bite and taste, among the very best. If I take in account other details like grassfed, price/quality and service, Finns Farmcut has the best ribeye anywhere in this world. Period.More

Livid! That’s how I feel after my “experience” of Finns. After several unanswered phone calls, booking online but not receiving a confirmation and stalking outside the closed restaurant during the day - all to find out if they were open (November in Kinsale lots of...restaurants close). The only phone call we get is the one to say we’re being charged for not turning up for our table. A hefty €150 billed to my credit card! I’m pretty sure that’s “gouging” never mind appallingly bad customer service. I will never go to this restaurant again.More

I have had dinner many times in Kinsale but can honestly say this is the best restaurant in Kinsale. Not just for business dinners but for anyone that wants to have a superb experience. This is the ultimate of Farm To Fork!!!!

Having inhabited Kinsale for a few years now we occasionally ask ourselves, after perusing another menu with seafood chowder, chicken wings, burgers, fish and chips and a steak, whether the town really lives up to it's claim to be a foodie capital? Fortunately, there are...places like Finn's and a few others, which allow us to answer: "Yes!!" It's 4 years since I last reviewed Finn's, pre-Covid, so I don't mind posting another one. Nowadays I don't like to review on individual dishes, as menu's change and tastes differ but since Finn's is known for it's red meat, it seems reasonable to note that our steaks (rib-eye and fillet) were excellent, with that distinctive gameyness that comes with air-drying, and charcoal grilled to perfection. The other dishes were faultless too. The wine-list is great, with a fine range from top-end to affordable. Service was friendly and attentive. It's not cheap, but good quality never is. We'll be back.More

Just home from a weekend in Kinsale. We came across this lovely intimate restaurant on our walk about town and they were great. The food was exceptional from start to finish. The sirloin steak was fantastic as was the 2 fillet steaks my friends had....Service from Lucie was 10/10. Will definitely dine here again if we ever find ourselves back in Kinsale. 100 % would recommend to anyone visiting Kinsale.More

We arrived on time at 20.30 for the promised table which turned out to be on the runway to the kitchen ( and the loos ) Three of us sat cosily on a table more suited for two. Neither food nor wine had arrived after...Forty five minutes, when a somewhat desperate call produced a carafe of water. The staff were friendly and laid back , so much so that they failed to notice that the first bottle of wine which we ordered and which was out of stock was charged on our bill together with it’s replacement. They seemed amused rather than apologetic at this mistake. All in all not a very good evening - the food wasn’t bad.More

The main room of the restaurant is small and well decorated, and there was a pleasant atmosphere throughout what looked to be a very busy evening. I enquired from our waitress about the scallops as a starter course, but when she told us that it...comprised two scallops we decided that for the price, no matter how well presented, they weren’t going to represent good value. I went instead for the mussels, which were quite small, and unfortunately lukewarm when they arrived to the table and had to be returned to the kitchen. They arrived back out warmer, and with some coriander on top. My partner had the prawns, served whole and split down the centre, which looked impressive on the plate, but yielded very little meat. I had steak for main course, and my partner had lamb, both were excellent and served exactly as ordered.. I had a bearnaise sauce with the steak, but, like with the mussels, the sauce was lukewarm. This time I didn’t ask for it to be reheated as I didn’t want to let the steak go cold. Service overall was mixed, with some waiting staff giving the impression of still being in training, indicated for example by accidently pouring wine onto the table when serving. While I would recommend the steak, for the prices being charged the restaurant needs to get all the little things right before representing value for money.More
