We stopped here for a quick bite before a gig at De Barra's. The food was really good and the service was great. Delicious, well priced and served quickly. We will be back!

A go-to place for us whenever we want to unwind or meet up with friends. A great selection of reasonably priced wines; and yummy tapas. Highly recommended.

Great location. Very tasty food. Delicious coffee. Very good service with friendly staff. Clean spot and great for people watching, a chat or you can sit outside with cosy blankets provided or on a sunny evening and watch the traffic drive by in a nice coastal, West cork town. Highly recommended by me!

Menu is simple but on point, service is friendly & fast. Atmosphere is casual. It's my second time eating here and again I was delighted. Fresh ingredients done well.

Had a light lunch here on a quiet Sunday in November. I had the spiced beef and Cooleney cheese salad served in a Waterford Blaa. Very tasty. The roast garlic and corriander soup went down well as did the goats cheese,pesto and spinach ciabatas. Very good,fresh and tasty food. Good coffee. Worth a visit

Aris Cafe & Wine Bar on Asna Square was just the spot on a sunny afternoon for meeting an old friend for coffee and a catch up.Plenty of indoor & outdoor seating to suit your mood and of course plenty of choice on their menu, Open Sandwiches, Desserts, Coffee and Wines.

Ripped and coffee stained menus was the first impression. Most coffee shops in Clonakilty are closed on a Sunday hence my trying this one. Coffee was terrible. Burnt taste. Too hot. Cake was pretty good. The whole place needs to be cleaner and the walls repainted.

We are sorry our signature blend coffee was not to your liking. We would gladly have brought you cold milk had you requested it. We are glad you enjoyed some of our homemade desserts. Thank you for taking the time to write this review More

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.
