Work dinner that I won't forget in a hurry! The food was first class and the service very friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable. Very busy, so definitely book. Not for dining on a budget, but you 100% get what you pay for and more. FANTASTIC........

We went to Jacques as a group of four to celebrate a friend's 30th birthday and we were stunned by both the quality of food and value for money. We were greeted with warmth - the service is lovely - but it was the food that stole the show. A gnocchi with goats cheese starter, closer to gyoza than pasta,... More

Visited for dinner with a group of colleagues. Service is efficient and friendly, the menu has some really interesting offers, including some excellent local artisan beer (Kinsale Dark IPA recommended!). Lots of seafood on offer, as you'd expect, the mussels were excellent and my everyone else seemed happy. It's not a large place, but has a great atmosphere. I'll certainly... More

Very disappointed to find that chicken used in sandwiches at lunch is leg and thigh meat - brown and with cartilage thrown in for good measure. Appalling treatment of customers to be then charged for the sandwich having pointed it out to the waitress who then told the owner. When charged 8€ for a basic chicken mayo sandwich It's fair...

Hi Tracy . We roast whole chickens for our sandwiches as we believe they are far superior in taste to just breast which is not cooked on the bone . We will continue to do so . Jacque More
