Outstanding food. What magical combinations of ingredients and flavours. So different to the normal restaurant experience. The presentation of each dish were real works of art. Deeply satisfying food without feeling stuffed. The staff were all so friendly and down to earth. It was lovely that Rob and other kitchen staff served dishes and explained what they were. Felt very safe and relaxed with appropriate Covid precautions. Very good value when you consider the quality of ingredients, the details of each dish and the brilliant service. What a wonderful experience. I feel so fortunate to have this in West Cork. Wishing Rob, Elaine and team many more years of success.
A well worth while experience, food combinations were perfect. If your looking for a treat look no further.
A superb meal A chef at the very top of his craft Long may it prosper
Fabulous, our second visit and a highlight of our holiday in west cork. Elaine and Rob are fastidious in their attention to detail and it all results in beautiful dining experience and a welcoming environment.5 star review on every aspect.
Fantastic dinner at Chestnut last Saturday night. Rob, Elaine and their team doing amazing things in Ballydehob. Highly recommended. #staycation #supportlocal #westcorkfoodisthebest #thechestnutwestcork
What a lovely experience. An amazing tasting menu. Light, delicious tastes. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Overall, a very nice experience.
Absolutely fabulous food and such a creative tasting menu. Our original reservation for March had to be cancelled because of COVID 19 so we delighted to be able to reschedule and make the trip from Dublin for dinner. Restaurant Chestnut is something special.
Lovely and local, more natural light in the room would be better. Face masks on staff unfortunate but necessary. Wine pairing was very helpful. An excellent experience.
wonderful night out - superb food, lovely staff, great wine list, highly recommend
We had a fantastic private dining experience in the Chestnut. Elaine and Rob were extremely attentive, friendly and so lovely to all of our guests.
The staff were very friendly, it was such a lovely relaxed environment, the food was exquisite. Definitely, one of the best dining experiences we have had.
Unforgettable. Every single bite and sip was perfect. I want to do it all again!
The meal was incredible, our second time visiting and the service was excellent by all the staff. Great to meet Rob Krawczyk on the night.
Restaurant was busy on a Saturday. Very nice releaxed atmosphere. Elaine and her team couldn't be more helpful and it was nice to to see the chefs out and about. Rob's food was, as always, spectacular. We will be going back very soon.
Always a great experience eating at the Chestnut. Rob, Elaine and the team are great hosts and the food is superb with a focus on local ingredients.
Astounding experience and so well worth the wait though the final course (the "Sweet") was just one course too much for me. Elaine at front of house was quietly excellent . However the stand out feature for me was that the lady who was announcing our courses noticed before the whiskey and lemon verbena sorbet course arrived, that one of our party was not drinking and she offered him a non alcoholic sorbet. Such attention to detail is rare in the extreme. We will be back...if we can get a reservation.
Highly recommend the tasting menu in this stunning little restaurant in West Cork! Achieves a great balance between contemporary and traditional. We love the style and feel of this little place and the food is fantastic!
Fantastic food and service - hope to be back
An absolute treat and a delight with tastes and flavours of the sea and the land, a real gem. A wonderfully attentive and friendly team who shared their knowledge of each dish and wine pairing with so well. Thank you so much.
