Enjoyed a terrific lunch here with the local beer called Tom Crean. The owner Gavin O"Grady sat and conversed with us and really made this a fun time. Nice glass canopy area looking out over the bay on a beautiful day makes this a highly recommended stop if you are in Dingle.

My desire here would be to give a rating between average and very good. We were a bit disappointed when we first arrived and the first thing our waiter told us was what was not available from the menu. Despite that we stayed and had a very good meal (fish and chips for one, tempura battered scampi for the other).... More

I would eat here again if it was cheaper. Far too pricey compared to what you can eat, for the same money, elsewhere in Dingle. Tempura prawns were made fresh but a crab cake I got for starters was microwaved..... and was only barely warm on one side. Fast service and friendly staff though..

We just wanted a quick bite before going to see the sunset. I had the calamari and my wife had a chicken caesar. Both were very good and the server was great! Great view of the marina as well!

Whilst on holiday in the area, we stopped off for lunch and sat in the conservatory in glorious sunshine. We enjoyed the most delicious fish chowder with drinks and a leisurely lunchtime before continuing our tourist activities in the area! The restaurant is just over the road from the harbour and car park and ideally placed for eating before or... More

We were seated in the glass enclosed portion of this restaurant. Nice and bright for a mostly cloudy day. Tho, I have to say the bench on which I sat was a wee bit hard, but not a big deal. My husband had the seafood pie, which had lots of seafood and the "crust" was potatoes. I tried the salmon... More
