Fabulous fresh and uncomplicated seafood with a wonderful atmosphere. The quality of the seafood is amazing something almost unobtainable in the big cities. But you need to pick your time as they don't take bookings

Good, fresh seafood. Was super quiet when we were there, near the end of the season. Car ferry to Valentia is in the same area. Its a cosy restaurant and the owners are super friendly.
