Fishy Fishy is probably the best-known restaurant in Kinsale, catering for hundreds of diners every day during the Summer season. For lunch and dinner.
Always atmospheric, this family-owned (Marie & Martin ..... with Jack deciding to follow in his parent's footsteps), always offers an excellent range of excellently prepared fresh food.
I particularly like the fish dishes - with a love of the salmon (which is a 'core' dish). Unfortunately this year there was none of the crabmeat sandwiches/dishes that are usually my favourite. So some of the starter options were limited or overpriced. But we loved the prawn alternatives.
My sweet tooth was more than satisfied by the trifle dessert. Unfortunately no fresh strawberries this year
Wine choice had as always, something for everybody. We particularly like the own label Pinot Noir and the Sauvignon Blanc.
Despite the enormous staffing pressures triggered by Covid, the staff were brilliant and always seemed to have time to make everybody feel special.
Fishy Fishy will always be our most 'regular' restaurant when we go to Kinsale. If they did breakfast .............. we would use it for that meal as well !!

I reserved a table for 2 last April for last week. The restaurant was closed due to a Covid case but we weren’t informed & only learned of it when we came to the restaurant. It was virtually impossible to get another booking on a Thursday night in Kinsale at such last minute.
I sent an email & the response I received from Marie Shanahan was appalling- casually written & a very ‘not bothered’ tone to the email. It was very clear that customer service is low on the list. Definitely wouldn’t be returning based on that experience alone.

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Kinsale and as usual it didn't fault. We had to queue for about 30 mins but this was OK as I knew it was worth the wait. Had the monkfish on both nights. Definitely do not miss this if your in kinsale

We queued for a table as was the normal practice for outdoor dining but it was worth the wait of 40 mins. The gentleman who was dealing with the queue was friendly and fun and the lady who gave us our table brought us a cushion each and a rug as it was starting to get chilly. Our food was delicious and the general ambience in the restaurant was lively and friendly with plenty of chat with other diners. We really enjoyed our evening here and will definitely be back on our next visit.
