Dined here on January 2nd and had a great meal. We had smoked salmon, chowder soup (best ever) and goats cheese starters, followed by duck which was finger licking good and scampi. Desserts were all equally good, chocolate tarte, meringues. Staff really jolly after the christmas season and new year.

Dined here a Tuesday night early December, full, beautiful food, staff really helpful and friendly. Ambience beautiful, not too expensive. Had the pork belly, wow. My partner had the set menu, with the 8oz steak, was also beautiful. Would highly recommend, followed by the blue haven bar, acoustic music usually nightly, also very good .

Cosy restaurant in a fabulous setting. The Man Friday delivers on quality, choice, service and ambience. Eating from the Early Bird menu the fish pie and apple crumble were stand out dishes. The meal was a highlight in our week's visit to Cork. Would definitely recommend as one of the best restaurants in Kinsale.

Staff is really friendly (bumpy but friendly) food is indeed very good. My group had both steak and sea food and they all enjoyed it all. View is superb but I would recommend visiting it in daylight to enjoy the most. Also a desert like "Meringue" is a must to try

Amazing food in a beautiful cosy setting. Had the crab au gratin as a starter and steak for my main. Both were perfect,so much flavour and cooked to perfection. Will definitely be back. If you want a treat this is it!
