Had the Prawns, Scallops and Calamari skewers and it was really tasty. Plenty of food without need for extras. Will return!

The White Lady was recommended for dinner by our hotel and we were not disappointed! The staff was very friendly and welcoming and we felt like we were having dinner at a friends house. My husband and I both opted for Asian dishes, which I don't think I would have typically order in Ireland...but they were amazing! I had the... More

The White Lady is a lovely restaurant with excellent food. Based in the 'main street?' within easy walking distance of the local cobbled streets and shops.

Literally, it was so warm in the restaurant I asked to have the window open and fortunately the waitress accommodated me. The food was good, the wine selection was good, we enjoyed our dinner here.

A fantastic weekend of laughter, singing, great food and wonderful entertainment from Anthony, Roman and all the staff for The White Lady Cup 2016. The Old Head of Kinsale is a magical place but it is made even more special by the care and attention shown to us by Anthony and the boys & girls. It doesn't matter if it... More

Hats off to Anthony here, so friendly & welcoming. Gave us great advice for our stay in Kinsale, advising us to go to some places which just can't be missed. Offers amazing fresh fish & steak from specialised Asian chefs. We were stuck for accommodation for our second night stay and Anthony went out of his way to find us... More

I had Brill for the first time here and it was lovely. It was not covered in a lot of creamy sauce like happens so many times with fish. It had a little lemon butter on it. My husband had a lovely beef in black bean sauce

Place was busy and it was a Tuesday night. Service was OK and the food was very good. Had scallops to start (on the small side but tasty) and a grilled brill which was excellent.
