“Great “Chipper” At Reel Dingle”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

We made the right choice to visit and eat at Reel Dingle Fish. It doesn’t get any better than fresh fish, landed the same day from the local dock, prepared in a simple, no fuss way. It was delicious. The place is clean and small. There are only a few chairs and a counter. Most people seem to take away. The portion was very generous, the price was reasonable, and the owner was extremely friendly. We enjoyed talking with him. The tartar sauce was homemade and very good, chunky with sweet pickles and capers. It’s in a touristy location but I would consider it a touristy place. It’s just a block or two off the main street. We would definitely visit again if we’re in the area.

“Top notch”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Fantastic fish (wide range and always freshly landed) and their gourmet burger is fantastic too. There are four fast food chip shops in Dingle. This is in a class of its own

“Fish and Chips you shouldn't miss!”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Been here several times and always really good F&C- good choices, hake especially good, and monkfish! (Don't see the latter very often in batter!?).
Hardly a restaurant - just a shelf and 3 stools to sit on, but it does add a bit of atmosphere whilkst waiting.
Put on your own salt - they're very heavy handed!
We have been there half a dozen times, and it does vary in terms of batter and crispness from superb to good hence 4 stars. -I would recommend it very strongly nevertheless, as the food is very good, and service and atmosphere great.
Incidentally, it's the only place I've seen a thermometer used to check the fish for readiness?

“The reel deal, for sure”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Great fish and chips - and try the sausage too. Fresh, right off the boat, and you can't beat the price. Gents behind the counter were great to talk with during the chip preparation. You can't get better.
