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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

On a week's stay in Castletownbere we ended up eating dinner here twice and both times were excellent. The first time I had one of their burgers which came with a bit of a surprise (no, not going to spoil it!) and it was first...class; the second time I had the scallops and black pudding from the tapas menu, accompanied with their mix of patatas bravas and potatoes with aioli and, again, this was first class. For dessert the first time I had the chocolate mousse which definitely had plenty of chocolate in it, and the second time I had the churros which came with plenty of chocolate dipping sauce: both were excellent. The service was efficient and friendly and helpful. As restuarants go, nothing else in the town even comes close.More

Warm, cozy, and welcoming, Diego's is authe tically Spanish while at the same time caters to local tastes. We had some tapas, pizzas, and steaks. The Macroom buffalo rubeye was quite possibly the best steak I have eaten in Ireland! I highly recommend this restaurant,...I know we will be back again next year!More

4 of us had dinner here last week and really enjoyed our evening. The restaurant had been very busy because of the regatta, and, despite the staff being exhausted, we had a lovely welcome and very good service. 3 of us had sirloin steak, and...I can honestly say it’s the best steak I’ve had in years, cooked to perfection. My other friend had a chargrilled chicken salad which was also exceptional. We shared some great tapas dishes to start, the black pudding and cheddar spring rolls were gorgeous. The cooking is inventive and uses great ingredients. The wine list is small but the two wines I tried were very nice. Looking forward to returning - hopefully this week!More

We ate here with our kids but would love to come back to enjoy a full 3 course meal as a kid free couple! Everything we ordered was delicious. My husband got the brisket and it was one of the nicest pieces of meat we...have tasted in YEARS and a huge portion. The nachos were also top class and perhaps the nicest I’ve had in Ireland! It’s a long way back to castletown berehaven from where we are, but if I make it back, I’ll be booking Diego’s for sure!More

Diego's was great - although the chef seems to be a little temperamental. They did not care to cater to one of the allergies of our group, claiming that much of the 'freshly cooked' food on the menu was pre-prepared and that ingredients could not...be removed. We arrived on their first day back after COVID so it was extremely busy, and allowances should likely be made for this stressful re-opening. The food that was eventually ordered was delicious, though the service was definitely overwhelmed by the demand on their first day.More

We found Diegos on a trip to Castletownbere and it did not disappoint. Amazing food from a charcoal oven with wonderful Spanish and Mexican influences. The service was warm and friendly and we even had the pleasure of thanking the chef ourselves. Make sure you...check Diegos out if you're anywhere near Castletownbere.More
