Fantastic location, great choice and really tasty food!! Toddler was covered in bolognese by the time he got through lunch, but not a scrap left in the bowl. Staff were really friendly and even shared tasty curry cooking tips. Located close to Fota Island resort and lodges this is a handy stop

Have been here a few times now and we have never been disappointed. I have had a number of different fish dishes and each one has been top class. We have tried on occasion the burger which is very filling and our daughter always enjoys her baby bowl.

A lovely café/deli style restaurant just off the main road with great home style baking and treats. Popped in for a late breakfast/brunch recently and had a lovely Eggs Benedict (they serve with ham hock but I asked if I could have bacon instead and it was not problem). Efficient and friendly service. A very good experience.

I have visited the restaurant several times before and have always have found it a great stop/passing-by Restaurant. Because of the location, I would never consider it to be something to take me outside of the City for an organised dinner/night. However, on this occasion, I was invited by someone else and my opinion of the restaurant have drastically changed.... More

I have been here many times before but today I felt my meal.was a little bit flat! The presentation was not up to par. But the desert was to die for.

Staff are great no doubt, very customer focused but the food is very disappointing, pancakes are not made fresh they are reheated and quite crispy on the outside probably microwave ? (it doesn't take long to made fresh pancakes once the mix is done every morning :) ) . They also should be served with fruit or something as you... More

Nice place for a quick bite when traveling to Killarney. Better than most pubs but not a luxury place. Get a sandwich and a beer. Save room for dessert!!!!

Stopped by on the way to Fota. Messiest burger I've ever had with caramelised onions instead of onion ring and undercooked chips. "Thai" green curry was tasteless. Coffee and staff are great. Desserts looked delicious as well.

We had booked a late lunch here recently upon a friend's recommendation and were sorely disappointed. We asked for a starter as a main course but it just came on a larger plate! I don't normally have fish and chips but did on this occasion, I was surprised that it was bland and not tasty as I had anticipated. The... More
