The food is excellent quality with a slightly quirky menu. The service is great - friendly and efficient. Been there multiple times and plan to go back.

Relaxed friendly restaurant serving great choice of meat, vegetarian & seafood dishes. Very generous portions & very reasonable prices. A busy lately little gem in the heart of town.

Small intimate place with such great food. The place is busy and tables are close together but not a problem at all. Service is so friendly and efficient. They also have art on the wall from local artists for purchase. They have a nice wine list and the lamb shank is to die for. Also the goat cheese salad is... More

Most of the street is a overly touristy and congested. The Quay Street Kitchen is a welcome relief from the chaos. It is a little cramped inside but still sort of homey. The decor could use an edit or two and the service could slow down a bit but over all it is a friendly and inviting place. The food... More

Chowder, fried fish stuffed into a soup. Beef salad, flanchet and lettuce only. No taste to either dishes. Dishes and cutlery removed from our table as soon as the last mouthful was taken. Food poor quality and slapped up, service eat up and get out. Will never return.

Loved the meal here. Ribs, stew, fish stew, bruschetta and desert, the only so-so was the calamari appetizer tasted frozen. Nice staff, great ambiance and we managed to walk right in at 5 PM- beat the rush.

Visited mid week and we had to wait an hour for a table, it is that popular. They take your phone number or tell you to go to a neighbouring pub and come and find you! Interesting if limited menu and sadly had run out of lamb stew when we sat down, but we ate excellent crab pate and beef... More

I had a quick, simple and delicious meal here and I'd definitely go back. There was a nice menu, including some good seafood choices, and all quite reasonably priced. I had grilled sea bass, which was really delicious and a very generous portion (€14.95). It also came with a lovely selection of vegetables and a delicious red pesto. Other choices... More

We dropped in here on Good Friday for something to eat before going home. It was full but they took our number and said it would be maybe a half hour, which it was. This is a small place, maybe 30 seats but the food was great. There were three of us. We had two vegetable and one tomato and... More
