About Restaurant Chestnut
Restaurant Chestnut is an intimate 18 seater Restaurant led by award winning Irish Chef, Rob Krawczyk.
Born in County Cork, Rob grew up in a home in Schull that revolved around the kitchen, influenced by his parent's strong culinary and artistic heritage.
After living away, West Corks' spectacular rich larder is what has drawn Rob home to open up a Restaurant in the heart of this beautiful area. Restaurant Chestnut is an intimate 18 seater Restaurant set in a former character filled pub in Ballydehob.
Restaurant Chestnut's menu, inspired by nature, will be an ever evolving menu designed around the best of the seasons ingredients.

I treated my Mum and Dad to this beautiful restaurant . They loved it! my dad said his duck dish was perfect. I had the vegan menu and couldn’t get over the creamy almost meaty flavors you can get from chargrilled cauliflower & puréed vegetables. It was visually awakening and a true taste sensation yet true to the flavours and tapestry of vegetation that can be grown nearby. My garden salad was nearly to pretty to eat so fresh and yum and the craic we had with the rubarb palette cleanser ...you need to try it to know why !! Elaine was so informed about the menu, attentive and gentle.... just the nicest approachable mix I would expect from a classy place. Everyone feels at home there
Wonderful experience in a beautiful set up. We'll be back
Brillant tasting menu. well done Rob Krawczyk and team. Eric Pearce
Sorry that because we live in Dublin a return visit is difficult to plan. But we enjoyed it very much
5 stars across the board says it all.
Amazing food! Lovely restaurant not to posh and done up it makes you feel comfortable while eating good food
The food is really exciting and delicious and the presentation is amazing
Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and service was excellent. Certainly recommend the Restaurant to our friends.
This is Michelin star food at affordable prices, we started with Scallops which were done perfect followed by brill again cooked to perfection , the home made bread was divine. Great addition to the restaurant scene in West Cork. Shows how to convert a traditional bar into a good restaurant with a great atmosphere.
An excellent meal, quality ingredients prepared with excellent technique and sensitivity. Cannot thank them enough for the wonderful hospitality and assistance given to my mother in law who doesnt run around quite so fast these days. Go, but dont book the place out so I cant....
My friend and I love our food but dislike pretension which we feared we might experience at Chestnut. But not a bit of it. We found every dish we had tasty, innovative and exciting and we tried them all as we shared every dish that was on offer. The flavours were many and ranged from delicate to rich and intense. The smoked butter,, the delicate fish, the plump scallops, the red but tender duck, the compressed rhubarb, the perfectly ripe and intense strawberries, the sabayon... And just to make sure that we missed nothing after sharing two deserts we shared a cheese plate of three carefully chosen cheeses and a large Parmesan cracker. I normally can only manage a tiny amount of blue cheese but I could not resist the soft airy, crumbly blue goats cheese which I had accompanied my an Irish apple port. The unrefined, unfiltered tempranillo went down pleasingly too. We had a perfect night and only fear that too soon we will not be able to get a booking when we want one.
Already booked next visit! Great addition to Ballydehob and West Cork
Wonderful food, wonderful service - we’ll definitely be back!
Thoroughly enjoyed the evening from start to finish! Service was excellent. Food both tasted and looked sublime. The tasting menu was excellent value and I look forward to returning again very soon! Thank you Rob & Elaine x
