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.

Great spot. Friendly staff. Very efficient. I had the seafood pie and it was absolutely sensational. The best that I've ever had. Excellent chicken goujons and perfectly cooked vegetables. Fresh and crisp salad. Overall, a brilliant experience. 5 stars all around.

Simply wonderful. Went there after being ignored for 20 min at the "upscale" restaurant we had made reservations with. Popped in slightly late in the evening, that is for a small Irish town. We were delighted with a warm welcome, riendly and prompt service followed...by a world class plate of food that will make anyones belly happy. The steak was outstanding and the fresh King Scallops were just amazing. Believe me, this rating goes to six!More

Visited the old bakehouse as a family. We love good food with good customer experience and we got both in bucket-loads!!! My wife had the cod special amd I had the king scallops special. We shared each others and both superbly complimented the other. Kids...menu had fab choices my mother-in-law hasn't got a big appetite so had 2 starters - ki g prawn tails and fishcakes. Side orders of veg was plentiful and the wine and beer seke tion was fab. The seafood all locally sourced from doolin and surrounding coastline and you can tell! Absolutely beautiful in every way! Really cosy and warm and could have stayed all night. Thank you!More

Excellent home made food. The best we had in Ireland. Highly recommend the goat cheese salad, fried Brie, and prawns (we had it with garlic butter). Everything was absolutely delicious!

Fresh and Hot food done superbly well with friendly service and an inviting dining room. Came for lunch with the fiancée and her family. Started off with the fried brie. Then went for the curry, cod, burger, and boiled bacon. All quite good. I had...the cod which you could get in breadcrumb or beer batter. I went with the breadcrumb. Was perfectly fried. Also, they were very generous portions for the lunch menu.More

We went in this restaurant on a cold december night. Very few people around. I’m Italian and to be honest I’m not a fan of the Irish food, however, I strongly reccommend the old bakery where I eat an amazing ‘grilled cod topped with crab...meat’ and a great seafood chowder.More

The food is as always great. But unfortunately it’s so cold in the restaurant it is uncomfortable. Can you make it warmer?
