Not much to say....the folks who waited on us were very friendly, our order was correct, and the food was very good (the chicken curry over rice was great). The price was right, too. To top it off, the setting is spectacular; right next to a beautiful stream and bridge. Just lovely. We had to park down the street a... More

Crossed the bridge and found this little place, but its much bigger than you think when you get inside. I decided to try the chowder which was delicious with lovely chunky bread, have decided...

Excellent place for a pit-stop and much more if required. Very accommodating and friendly staff. Good Value and of course excellent view of the torrent under the bridge at Sneem.

I visit this restaurant every two weeks with my colleague when we are in the area. I always look forward to having my lunch here and the Sneem visit can't come quick enough! I have the warm Goat's cheese salad and it is divine! Big piece of mouth-watering cheese sitting on a beautiful salad with toasted almonds and comes with... More

It doesn't look like a big eatery from the outside and feels more like a cafe than a bistro but there is an extensive menu and the food is all prepared from scratch, and is lovely! The best is the staff - they are welcoming and immediately set about making a table for 10 of us and were so friendly.... More

A lovely quaint little bistro on the riverside! I came here for a bite to eat after a busy day travelling. The menu was perfect! I opted for a chicken salad baguette and chips, it was so delicious! There was also lots of other choices including hot meals. The baked goods looked amazing, unfortunately I did not have time to... More

This is a beautiful bistro beside Sneem bridge, right in the middle of the busy village. The menu has lots to choose from, a simple soup and sandwich all the way up to a scampi or other meal. The homebaking looks enticingly out at you from the fridge and if the weather is nice you should definitely sit outside and... More
