Dined as a group of 9 on a Friday. The food was excellent and I would highly recommend the Irish beef, produce in Ireland in rarely imported meaning everything is fresh and you can taste the difference. The Friday entertainment of Piano and singing was a great nights entertainment, they even took requests!. I would highly recommend this venue for an evening of good food and company. Be back soon!.

By chance we ran into a female soloist doing a wedding in our hotel. She is the regular performer with Billy Crosby at this location. We had our most enjoyable meal at this location on our Kinsale,stay. Carel is the owner and was just fantastic along with her fine waitstaff. The mussels and halibut were out of this world . They have a first rate wine list to enhance the experience. The icing on the night was 4 front row bar seats to hear Billy and Margaret sing your favorite tunes or give you the mike to sing your own. Everyone in our party ranked this #1 for the week. Enjoy.

We have been touring Italy, France and Ireland for three weeks and this has been one of the best meals we've had. Mussels are excellent! Better than PEI!

Michael from Desmond House made reservations for us here since we were arriving in Kinsale on a Saturday evening. What a great place! The menu is enticing and very different from much of the fare offered elsewhere on our Ireland trip. The dishes range from traditional to inventive and all were delicious. Warning...they don't serve Guinness here...but not to worry, I learned here that I liked Murphy's even better!!! Try this restaurant...you will love it!

Okay i booked this restaurant on Bank Holiday Monday on the recommendation of the owner of Max's Wine Bar and thanks to her our party of six were really delighted with our gorgeous evening meal. We were there for the early bird menu which was outstanding for the price we paid. No one could fault any of our food throughout the meal. Gorgeous starters even better mains and deserts. The value was exceptional. Don't hesitate about booking a meal here just go. You won't be disappointed. Lovely waiting staff and a nice ambience relaxed and friendly. It's on my list of best restaurants for sure.
