An excellent lunch menu, good variety, pleasant location with views of the beach and coast line. Returned one evening but more suited for snacks.

Maybe we were just a bit late in the season, but despite the staffs best efforts we were left quite disappointed by the quality of food, and selection on offer. No kids options at all, and very little left on the menu. Despite this the food still cost over 40E for two meals and drinks. Such as shame as the... More

Visited Fins on 31st August after a local resident and friend recommended it. I took my two boys and ordered meatballs with tomato sauce and chicken burger... It was really tasty... Followed by chocolate brownies which the boys loved. Nadine was really friendly and helpful and made the meatball sauce without spice for us and couldn't have been more accommodating... More

Love this place. Sit out on the back balcony kick off your shoes, order a beer, some barbecue and take in the view. Perfect. Staff are very friendly and service is good. I loved the chicken wings and I am always a sucker for chicken piri piri. Great value

Hadn't been here in a couple of years, but great to be back. Excellent set up and brilliant food! Piri chicken is great, and the wings are excellent! There is a great selection of drinks, and the staff are so friendly and welcoming I didn't want to leave! Also, the view isn't too shabby!!!! Highly recommend if you're in the... More

We popped in restaurant tonight having walked past and ordered prawns and turkey skewers which were really well done. The chips and salad were excellent and we had a nice evening. It is not fine dinning but that is reflected in what you pay 12 euro each, rustic beach charm for chilled out evening.

Hi Betty I've never heard anything so ridiculous as a comment that our staff pour the drip tray into a pint !!! Are you sure you were not the wobbly one ? As to your concern about €3 for a can of coke for august ! It's been the same price since 2011 ! More

We have visited this restaurant on and off over the years , it has had some good times but not any more. The food was dreadful, re-heated chips, half chicken didn't come with any coleslaw even though the menu said it would. It's such a shame as its a lovely setting and perfect for a cold glass of wine and... More
