“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Ate here last Friday night on the last night of our holidays having booked earlier in the week on the advice of locals, and we were not disappointed. The service was efficient and friendly, and the food was superb. I would recommend the food to anyone. If you wish to take some good food away from here, try the fish shop downstairs which is owned by the same family and is well supplied with fresh produce.

“Good restaurant.........But!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Arrived without prior booking on a wet May Tuesday, and had to wait for a free table ! That is the sign of a healthy restaurant, filled mainly withlocals. Starters were oysters and apple &celery soup, the latter was truly excellent. Mains were a seafood platter, with crab claw, langoustines and prawns, plus mussels in a delicate and fragrant wine sauce. Servicewas swift and courteous, a selection of micro brewery beers was superb. Overall, an enjoyable meal. Some negatives, however: the oysters tasted as though thay had been a good while in a tank; the dressed crab had a watery flavour, as though defrosted. Mussels although excellent, were clearly out of season, as the meats were tiny in relation to the size of the shells.
All in all, an enjoyable meal, I have given a four because of the pleasant atmosphere and the delightful service. Were I not a grumpy married old man, I would hasten back and marry both of the colleens!

“Fabulous Fish!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

The freshest seafood cooked to perfection. Being local to the area I eat here often enough and it is consistently excellent. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, good wine choices, lunch and dinner menu. Very reasonably priced. I'd highly recommend the Fish Kitchen in Bantry.

“Good food”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

This restaurant is upstairs next to a fish shop and definitely serves fresh fish. I had hake and my friend had swordfish and both were excellent. The waiter was very knowable about the dishes and ensured that we got exactly what we wanted to eat.
