Dropped into here for a light bite to eat at lunchtime and shared a mixed seafood selection with wife. It was delicious Prawns super tasty, squid soft with a lovely hint of pepper in coating and Hake with batter was light and full of flavour....Everything perfectly cooked and whilst deep fried wasn’t greasy. We’ll worth a visitMore

Visited here with family after a long day sightseeing , tired and hungry, I found the staff very nice and the food was absolutely delicious I had seafood chowder, pizza, and the salmon. The place was really clean and the atmosphere was relaxed and family...friendly, I actually bumped into a friend I had not seen in years in there who also told me she has been coming there for years and it’s always been a great place for food and drinks. I would definitely recommendMore

We were 2 adults and 3 kids. Menu was limited and very ordinary - not what I had expected from googling. Nothing great about the food;but by the same token, nothing wrong with it. A bit pricey. Service was good. Would not say it was...bad but would be in no hurry to go there again.More

Had dinner in O’Carroll’s Cove. No precautions for Covid-19. Had to walk through what was essentially a normal busy bar to reach the restaurant - no food, no social distancing, zero masks. Inside no separation between tables, no staff wearing masks. Host spoke directly into...my face. Food was fine and service from young staff was pleasant but would have been better if they were wearing masks or taking any social distancing precautions.More
