In the lovely little town of Dingle, every other doorway seems to lead to a pub, a restaurant or both. Yet it can be very hard to get a table at the better establishments. It was our good fortune to be turned away by several other popular places, so that we ended up for an early dinner at Half-Door. They gave us our best meal in Dingle and one of the best in our 10 days in Ireland. I had Monkfish, my wife a sezfood pasta and both were excellent. Best of all, I was able to order a perfect salad to start --something we could not find in most other Irish restaurants.

This restaurant offered very bland food (talbot and monkfish especially) and the starters were equally not memorable. We spent over 100 euros and simply did not see the value for the extra money.

John, our handsome waiter, was engaging and friendly. Yet the good service did not offset the food quality.

Went in at dinner time for a light bite. We didn’t order an entre. Only appetizers. So they Refused to sell us a vegetable plate because they only are served with entrees.

We were lucky to get in without a reservation after a day touring the Dingle Peninsula. We all ordered the special, which included a generous portion of John Dory and turbot, along with a few mussels, some potatoes and veg. The service was friendly and the atmosphere was nice. There were several tables with locals which to me is always a good sign when traveling.
