We spent the bank holiday weekend in Schull and having eaten in the Harbour Hotel on the Saturday night we wanted something different on the Sunday. We had passed by the Haven a few times but it really didn't appeal on appearance. However finding nothing else open on an October Sunday evening we tried the Haven and were much surprised.... More

Friendly, efficient staff and a welcome from the french owner. Busy, busy in summer time but you can have a drink at the bar which serves wine, beer and spirits. The decor is a bit... More

The New Haven was recommended to us and I would certainly, now recommend it to anybody else! What a warm and friendly welcome we received from the French owner chef and Ciara. The food was cooked and presented beautifully. The steak was cooked just as requested and the roast lamb was delicious. The salad dressing was made in house and... More

We had a lovely meal. Staff were very friendly. Busy but good atmosphere. As it was busy we shared a table with a lovely couple - great stories - you never know who you will meet. Recommended.

A restaurant that in many ways feels more like a big café. It didn't have the ambience that the menu suggested it should. I liked that the menu was not super extensive as this suggested fresh and well prepared food to order, and our experience seemed to bear this out. However, I wouldn't necessarily describe it as romantic. It felt... More

The staff here are friendly and the service is good. The place has a laid back atmosphere and suits casual dining. I shared a pizza with my wife and it was tasty. The tomato sauce was great. The chips however were a bit soggy. Definitely a good spot to grab a bite.
