“Great once again!!!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I ate here last weekend and it was fantastic. It's right in the center of Kinsale so it's a perfect location if you plan on strolling around or going for a few drinks in town after! It's a cosy little restaurant with a great atmosphere. I've been here a few times now and it's because it's so good! The food is great and is very reasonably priced for what you get. I had the Quesadilla filled with different beans and cheese and it was great! My sister had the enchilada (we both usually always have that because it is excellent) My mother always goes for fish and she has yet to be disappointed here! Last Saturday was no exception. The service was good too. If you are looking for good food at a not-so-expensive price in Kinsale town I would really recommend here!

“Outstanding and Very Pleasant :-)”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

My wife and I had dinner here and we were absolutely delighted with the quality of the food, service, hospitality and a lovely smiling staff.

This restaurant is family owner and run. The father is the Chef and his wife and daughter look after the tables. The restaurant opened its doors at 18:30 +/- and very quickly the place was packed to the gunnel's.

Even under pressure the Mom and daughter team looked after everyone with a cheery smile.

Fantastic all-round.

“Home cooking”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

It was a very basic restaurant. Food was fine. It was highly recommended on Trip Advisor so we went. There are many more places in Kinsale that you will get a better meal for the same cost.

“Great food keep it up!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

I've eaten here a few times and decided its time to write a review at last as I have had good experiences on each occasion.

What I love is the simplicity of the menu. While it may appear limited it manages to offer something for everyone...be it pasta, steak,Mexican or fresh fish!

The desserts are awesome as well so leave room for these!

One point worth noting is that this restaurant offers good VALUE for money which is very rare in kinsale. Please don't change this as I have seen happen in so many nice restaurants where the portions dwindle and the prices rise.
