This family operated restaurant is in heart of Castletownbere. We ate there several times, the proprietor was extraordinarily helpful when we asked about relatives in the area. The food was remarkably fresh and well prepared, great flavor. Do not skip dessert!

Driving the Ring of Beara was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland! This was a perfect stop for a late lunch after snacking along the way. Yummy chowder, vegetable soup and brown bread! Quaint little restaurant with good service.
