My wife and I ate dinner on 2 nights while we stayed in Kinsale. There is a good set of menu options available. The food is very good and staff are friendly. Service is also good. Price is also reasonable. We would recommend this restaurant.

We had a few meals here over the weekend and weren’t disappointed. I had the Irish stew, seafood pancakes, soup and they were all amazing. The staff are very accommodating and friendly and are a great asset to the bar and restaurant.
