This place was brilliant. We eat in most of the restaurants on the main drag and this was by far the best.

Stopped in here on a cold day and had a fantastic lunch. We had the chowder and the salmon which were superb. Really lovely staff and the atmosphere of the restaurant is awesome. Definitely stop in.

We lucked out and got a table outside. Waitress was super friendly and attentive. Excellent mussels and great fish & chips. Well worth the visit. Note: Cash only.

Went here and loved the chowder. Staff was friendly. We just picked it on a whim and just loved the taste. The soup was full of clams and it was a rich cream based sauce.

Stopped for lunch at Chowder Cafe on a warm June day. I had seafood chowder, and my spouse had an open chicken sandwich on soda bread. The food was excellent, and service was very good. The seafood tasted fresh-off-the-boat. Total tab for food only was €17.45 plus gratuity.

If you like chowder, this is the place to go. It is very small, and crowded, so if you have small hungry kids, you may not want to wait. Otherwise, they had the best chowder of our trip.
