We were in Glengarrif on July Bank Holiday Sunday. A busy evening but we found a table without reservation. Lovely setting but a bit impersonal, friendly and pleasant service, food (we had the hake and the baked salmon) generally of a good standard but I found the pricing a little excessive. Bread basket and olive tapenade greatly appreciated. Overall to... More

Was in glengarrif on 31 July 2016 and was passing by this lovely restaurant. We weren't planning on eating as we were only down for a few hours but we were so glad we'd did.

Landed in for dinner at 8.30pm. Bread basket and olive tapenade suggested a decent night ahead. Unfortunately they were as good as things got. Starters: greek salad with black olives and feta (decently put together in fairness but all supermarket bought) and a prawn salad/stir-fry effort that would have been more at home coming in a plastic box from your...

Martello restaurant in Glengarriff is cozy and tastefully decorated, good music at low levels poors, the service is all smiles and really helpful, and the food (I had a beef fillet medium rare with pepper sauce) was heavenly. The vanilla ice cream was a little too fat (like a block of butter) but all in all a very good place... More
