This quaint little restaurant served one of the best meals we've had in a restaurant. The bright, playful décor made for a pleasant and relaxing evening. The menu had many different types of food, and once it arrived we were extremely impressed with the presentation and taste of everything on the table. The meal was topped off with what was, quite possibly, the tastiest chocolate brownie I've ever had. I want to visit Kinsale again, just so I can eat at The Shack again!

After reading 30 reviews on different places to eat we decided to chance our arm with the shack. Both myself and husband are very fussy with food and he is a head chef so we are hard to please. The outside is awful and needs a revamp to look more exciting but omg its a gem, nothing matches inside but it works so well, the service was second to non and we had a beautiful meal that was cooked to perfection. We ate every bit of it and was well worth the money. Very good value for money. The music the the background was great and we didn't feel rushed to leave. Would defo recommend this place. Do not let the outside put you off.

Several locals recommended this place to us. The burgers were wonderful, chicken sandwich good, fries tasty. Don't think they serve beer, but not sure. Definitely have wine. Comfortable atmosphere but check the menu outside to be sure you like what they have to offer

Just a little family run eatery on the corner, decorated with wonderful little items. I loved the flying frog!! The food was sumptuous and well served. The couple who run the establishment are very friendly, good natured people. We had a great meal and a great time!

Doesn't look a lot to write home about from the outside, not a huge amount of choice on the menu but everything just worked.
The quality of the steaks were excellent and they were perfectly cooked to our requests.
Staff were efficient but friendly and welcoming - quite often it is one or the other.
A few of the diners were clearly regulars.
Prawn starter, steak main, a dessert and a glass or wine of that quality for under €40 is great value for money.
