The restaurant is in Macdonald hotel with absolutely brilliant view from the window. Chef knows his job. The food is delicious but service is not the best.

Service was decent, albeit late eve. For a hotel food place it was quite good. Dinner was better than the buffet breakfast. Lack of WiFi a drawback.

Was staying at the Mc Donald hotel in Kinsale and had dinner for one evening included. Was very poor menu with a poor selection to choose from. My partner had the prawn cocktail. Wow, is all I can say! And not in a good way. The prawns were like maggots on the plate, tipicially the cheap frozen little ones that u can buy in the supermarket. There was about 8 or nine tiny tiny things scattered around the plate and a few greens in the middle. The poorest prawn cocktail I have ever seen. I had the duck pate , flavourless, and the bread toasts were obviously pretoasted and stored in the fridge, they were so cold and rock solid! Crack a tooth solid! The mains were just as disappointing. Couldn't eat the patato bake so I asked for a substitute. 20 minutes later........ I had finished my tiny dinner and the girl had cleared the plate, before the subustute spuds arrived. Not four star food or service. I had a look at the other menu offered. Very over priced and nothing exciting. Breakfast in the hotel and the same restaurant was also poor, warm buffet food.
Wouldn't recommend eating here. If ur staying in kinsale and looking for food, Man Fridays in Kinsale, absolutely superb, top class, and cheaper than the so called four star restaurant , the rock pool!!

I was staying at the hotel and decided to have dinner here that night as it was raining and, out of laziness, I couldn't be bothered to go into town.

The food here is fantastic and the servers very friendly. The guys in the bar also know how to pour a good pint of Guinness!!
