Popped in on our way through Clonakilty for a snack. Really warm welcome. Ordered soup and sandwich and an open sandwich. Food was excellent and found it a really pleasant experience. Well worth a trip 👍

Not great for vegetarians in the evening. The advertised vegetarian lasagne was not available so we had to have a pizza. We'd had that the night before. Fast, friendly service. Great cup of tea.

Dropped in for light lunch, I had tuna melt, boss had chilli bowl, and it was a bowl, small portion did not go down well, my tuna melt was OK, but service was very friendly and although busy, food arrived quickly, tea was lovely though

Popped in for a quick lunch. Were lucky with the weather so eat outside. Plenty of tasty options but prepared in a different way. Very reasonably priced, tasty, extraordinary. Recommended. "Áris" - will be back.

Food was amazing but the menu is very different to the website. No eggs or brunch. Friendly staff and lovely cosy place. The blankets at the tables outdoors is a nice touch 😊

Description
We are delighted to bring you a taste of West Cork in beautiful Clonakilty. We opened in 2012 and are constantly improving our menus to bring something special to your experience with us. A simple yet locally sourced and affordable menu await even the most discerning palate, and our freshly baked cakes, scones and home-baked goods will tempt anyone. Added to that are local cheese, meats, chutneys, jams and salads. With specials every day on our menu, there is always something to enjoy. Cool and Refreshing Experience something out of the ordinary with our hand-picked collection of craft beers. With a small but varied selection of micro brews, we've done the hard work so you don't have to. While there are a few familiar beers available, why not enjoy a cider from Kinsale, or one of a range of refreshments from the Dungarvan Brewing Company.
