Everything was perfect, cozy, comfy bench seating with a view to the Sea, attentive service and WOW, the food! Enjoyed the calamari salad - dee-lish , and the mussels (best ever)!!! Fresh/Delicious Broth/Healthy Portion. Locals and tourists alike enjoy this homey gem. Absolute perfection!

Lovely atmosphere, great food and service with beautiful views across the bay to Kinsale. A perfect lunch on a sunny March Monday with a walk up to the castle close by afterwards.

We stop here every time we go to Kinsale for its delicious food (seafood chowder, lobster, fish&chips...) or just for a pint. On top of that, the view is lovely.
