My god, we had been in Dublin and went to a well regarded restaurant which we were disappointed with. We stopped in cafe Hans on the way home. Everything was delicious, I don’t much like carrots but they were fantastic, all of the party couldn’t...stop praising the meal. Many thanks to our waiter Stephen who was so helpful and kindMore

Ate here on Saturday, lovely restaurant, friendly staff. Place was nearly full, they don't take booking but looking at crowd they don't need to. Ordered the baked Cod and Wife ordered the coronation chicken. Soda bread with treacle arrived at table before food, it was...beautiful. Food arrived shortly afterwards, couldn't fault the food it was outstanding. Will definitely return very soon.More

After braving the heights and winds of the Rock of Cashel you deserve an exceptional lunch down the street at Cafe Hans. The food is terrific;the staff is welcoming and attentive. Our best lunch by a mile (or by a kilometer) on our two week...journey in Ireland. My wife actually called when we returned to the US to rave about the food and brown bread.More

After exploring Rock of Cashel, we looked for a quick lunch before heading on. Cafe Hans far exceeded our expectations. The three course lunch option was quite the value (we opted for wine over dessert). The fishcake was a meal in itself, crispy crust, moist...inside, filled with fish and paired with a fresh green salad with mango and pomegranate. My husband ordered the pork; and our friends ordered the quinoa and the cod. We argued over who got the best meal. The mushroom soup was a great start. The hint of tarragon added to the rich flavors. And above all of that, the service was simply superior - well-paced, friendly, and responsive.More

You cannot book a table here, but the wait is well worth it as the food and service is brilliant. Terrific value, best food.

Cafe Hans lived-up to the prior reviews. We weren’t disappointed. It was busy, but the servers were quite friendly and efficient. The cafe is small, so be prepared to wait for a table at peak times. The chicken caesar salad is quite delicious. Don’t expect...traditional flavors, though. The full portion option made for a filling lunch. My wife had the coronation chicken and it was very flavorful. My teenage sons thoroughly enjoyed the penne bolognese. Park in the main lot for the Rock of Cashel, then walk to the cafe. Otherwise, there is only limited street parking. And don’t forget to bring cash as they don’t take credit cards. It was a 5 min walk to the nearest ATM. Overall, I highly recommend Cafe Hans.More

My wife and I stopped in for a light lunch at the Cafe and were blown away by the quality of the food and service. If we pass by this area again, we will be sure to stop in. Maybe, we will be able to...sample Chez Hans, as well. An award winning restaurant right next door.More
