We dropped in unexpectedly in a group of 9. Eileen made us very welcome as seated us all, we had home made soup and soda and lots of pots of tea. Excellent service and great food too. Will definately come back again.

We were part of a bus group visiting the visitor's center, gift shop, and museum. Everyone seemed to enjoy their lunch there. I heard no complaints. I enjoyed the chowder which was loaded with fish. The brown bread was tasty, I could have eaten the whole loaf. There were sandwiches, different hot meals. Usual cafe food but it seemed freshly... More

A very disappointing experience. service was very slow for quite average food. Prices were largely inflated thanks to the proximity to boats for Skellig Islands. Credit cards not accepted, I had to get some charge back at the nearby deli (which of course requires at least 10€ worth of purchases).

The owner, who I gather is an accomplished and trained chef, was lovely and quick. The prices are low and the food was fresh and home made. Very few options in PM and a refreshing break from overpriced pub food.

This little cafe is on the waterfront and on a good day has outdoor seating, but even when it is cooler there ia a glassed in room where you can enjoy the scenery while you eat. The meal was thoroughly enjoyable, staff friendly and we were served in a timely fashion. You do have to order at the counter though

We were starving by the time we finished our Skellig Michael trip and headed straight for lunch as soon as we got off the boat. It's a cute little place and the food was really good. The only negative is the ordering process was very slow and disorganized.

My wife and I stopped to get something to eat on a rainy day in Ireland, I know you find that hard to believe that it rains in Ireland. A bus had just stopped down the street so we figured we'd better look for another place to eat and saw this Cafe'. The building is painted pink and we went... More

Stopped by for lunch after the tour. It was very good. Everything tasted fresh and they make their own bread. Would recommend.

Stopped here, family of four, part way through a Ring Tour, in late afternoon. We had a selection of drinks, cakes and ice-cream sundaes - all of which were tasty and reasonably priced, we thought. A small courtyard garden / terrace to the rear (walk out through back of premises) gives a view out over the channel to Valancia Island,... More
