If this is the post-pandemic face of Irish rural tourism in a (granted) beautiful West Cork location, a lot is left to be desired…… it would appear to trade on location and the yes, spectacular views alone. Functional food, pricey enough drink, service that wasn’t particularly friendly and the whole, grungy waiters in trackie bottoms and dirty gear more suited to a workout in the gym really doesn’t do the spectacularly beautiful location justice.

Visited for lunch as a family over Easter weekend. Chaotic and disorganized to say the least - one felt the proprietors were not in control. They were even quite rude to some customers and to their staff. Left as quickly as possible after a lunch that was just barely average . Not an enjoyable experience

We were having a couple of days break in nearby Inchydoney during St.Patricks week. On our 2nd day we went off for a drive with no particular place in mind but eded up in Glandore.It was around lunchtime so we saw some people sitting outside Hayes Bar and restaurant as It was a beautiful day.The owners were extremely friendly and it was their first day back open after lockdowns etc. We both had open sandwiches, incredibly fresh ingredients and so tasty. The following day (St.P day ) we were to drive back home so we booked a table for 2 pm as a treat , seeing as were so impressed the previous day ! It was even better . I had the most delicious seafood pasta, the fish tasted like it just leapt off the trawler, my wife had the most amazing Moroccan lamb tagine . All reasonably priced considering the high standard of food . We couldn't recommend this gem highly enough ...A must for any foodies !!!

We had a family dinner in Hayes and everything was delicious. Several unusual curries on the menu and hake Veracruz, a beautiful dish. I had a duck dish that was really delicious. Imaginative and tasty food using beautiful fresh local produce. We shared a smoked salmon platter to start and it was huge, and very luscious.
There is a lovely wine list as well, including decent, unusual wines but not outrageously expensive. And of course a great pint of Guinness.
The service and the welcome in general was really nice.
There was a good balance of Covid safely and high standards without ruining an atmosphere.

We (3 adults/4 children) dined at this seafood restaurant on Monday 23rd August. A number of t got the distinct impression on the phone and on the night that children were not really welcome even though 3 of the 4 ordered full price adult mains. There was no provision/mention of children on the menu and it was unclear if they could have a child's portion of the adult mains.
A number of the main courses listed were not available at 7.45 and we found the main waitress impatient and stressed.
We waited an hour and a quarter to be served our food and were just about to enquire when it arrived at 9pm. I complained about the delay and the waitress stood back with the plates and asked "well do you want it or not?" and proceeded to give us a lecture on how all the food was prepared freshly and about how busy they were. We were shocked at her outright rudeness. We had no choice but to accept the food as it was 9pm and we had 4 hungry children. My daughter's pasta with prawns was cold and we counted only 4 prawns. The other 3 children had pasta carbonara which also arrived cold. My husband and I had fish pie which at € 19 was overpriced and VERY ordinary. The bill came to €150 which included 3 glasses of wine. Overpriced, and terrible service. I would never dine there again. Go to the restaurant next door, it's much nicer.
