Knowing we were arriving in Kinsale on a Saturday and anticipating seafood meals many nights, we made a reservation at The Steakhouse from the US by email. The response was prompt and friendly, an indication of the service we would receive when we arrived. Our steaks were tender, sides delicious. The interior was warm and welcoming. We were glad we...

This is a lovely little place. Cozy atmosphere, wonderful staff. The food was fantastic. The ribs were especially good, and the desserts are worth making room for!

This is an unassuming restaurant which serves absolutely superb steak. The staff are friendly without being obsequious and are really interested in whether you have enjoyed your meal. We are asked our honest opinion about a new dessert; I am sure that this will have been acted on.

2nd visit.. excellent service & good buzz. Wonderfully cooked striploin HOWEVER.. I believe good steaks need to be seasoned, even a little! Never a good sign when you need to salt your steak!

When I spoke to you, you had mentioned seasoning and the idea of adding a steak rub. I had said that we lightly season our steaks and rest them in a jus of... More

We were very surprised when we entered the restaurant as it opened out to a huge place with a beautiful massive mirror on the wall. The welcome was great, the food great and we thoroughly enjoyed it all. Would return.

We visit Kinsale often, but had never dined here before. The restaurant is lovely to look at with a splendid mirror on stone wall above a big fire. We were greeted warmly by friendly staff and made very comfortable. Our friends had never been to Ireland before and this made a great start to their visit. The menu offers something... More
