The place seems modest in a place with guest rooms upstairs, but the meals are well prepared and delicious. I had the hake, at the waiter's recommendation, and it was a great choice. Perfectly cooked.. And dessert? An exquisite pavlova.

Ate evening dinner in the bar. Very nice staff. It's very busy as it's directly opposite PortMagee pier. Extensive alacarte menu from the restaurant and from the board in the bar. Chose hake, it was OK.asked for ice cream for dessert and that was OK...More

Nice place to have a dinner with a view to the Portmagee harbour. Food is very good, starting from a goat cheese plate, then grilled sirloin steak and a seafood risotto. Definitively a must!

Nice place to have lunch since this is half way at Ring of Kerry. Hamburgers and vegetable soup was particularly delicious.

Average experience, good enough for a lunch stop around the Ring of Kerry for lunch. Pasta bolognaise was good enough, basic place to have lunch in a basic town. Beautiful view of Portmagee from Valentia. View much nicer than the town itself.

The seafood was insanely fresh and wonderfully prepared. The hake filet I ate was butter. Doesn't get much better.

Hi, I would like to make a dinner booking at your restaurant for 2 people on Wednesday 3 August (with one being gluten free), at, say, 7pm - but I can't access your website, as my computer has detected a Trojan virus when I try and access you. Can I make the booking this way? Thanks, Maddi
