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.

Reviewed 6 July 2022

The staff here are so lovely and this review is in no way a reflection of the individuals working there. However the food is sub standard at extortionate prices. I understand that the prices are in line with other establishments in Bantry town centre, however...these other establishments use fresh quality local products and the price you pay reflects the quality of the meal you are to reciceve. I found there childrens menu to be something from the nighties. Very limited Full of processed food ie sausage and chips or chick nuggets and chips. No fresh options for kids or even a fish option. On a previous visit to the restaurant I requested they just do my daughter the salmon from an adult meal and a side of steamed vegetables. I was told that wasn’t going to happen as it would throw there books off as the salmon is for a specific meal. I said I was happy to pay the full price of it meant she could have a fresh meal that wasn’t fried and still told no. During my visit today the food arrived alarming fast and it showed in the quality of my meal. I ordered a poached eggs avocado and salmon on toast. the fish tasted sour the avacado tasted like it had come out of an el de passo jar was over acidic and flavour less. The eggs were over cooked and rubbery like they had been microwaved and the toast was soggy.More

Had a lovely takeaway lunch from here on a very wet Saturday recently. To say the food was excellent is an understatement. Exactly what we needed to warm the bones after a cold walk in the rain. We had a lovely toasted sandwich and soup,...and a sweet chilli chicken goujon wrap with chips which was top notch. Very well catered for takeaway with covid restrictions too, and great value for what we got considering we could have fed four out of what we ordered! Cannot wait to return once restrictions lift.More

A wonderful experience from start to finish. My son and I dropped in today for lunch. We were shown to our table and menus given immediately. I ordered the tuna melt on gluten free bread and when it came the portion was huge which was...great to see, usually it’s not a very big portion you would expect. My son chose the club sandwich of chicken and bacon with lettuce tomato and mayo and he could hardly eat it it was huge, again lovely to see there was no skimping on portion size here. Both meals accompanied with fresh side salad and fries. A very friendly gentleman who served us asked me would I like a top up of tea. We had a lovely waitress to serve us she’s a credit to the business, so friendly. We will definitely return, I genuinely had no room for dinner hours later. Look forward to our return visit.More
