This restaurant in the village was where we ate dinner and also breakfast (included in the Moorings Guesthouse room) the next morning. It offered many choices and the food was good. There are few places for dinner in town.

Unbelievable value and quality in this restaurant. Book well in advance as they fill up so quickly. I had 3 types of fish all really nice. The seafood risotto was out of this world. Could only recommend this place as the best on Portmagee
