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.

For parties of more than 6 guests and for private functions, please phone us directly to discuss.

Hello Robbie and Staff, You were ALL brilliant! We've told our friends too! I loved the food as it reminded me of Japanese clean style, presentation as well...simple, elegant. Next time would love to try the main course menu and hopefully before you close in January. Great having your place on our doorstep. All the best.

I really enjoyed the taster menu, every dish a taste sensation, beautifully presented and served with a smile. The wine was delicious.

We have eaten here 3 times since it opened - twice in the evening and once for Sunday lunch. Each meal has been superb for both vegetarians and non- vegetarians. Look forward to our next visit.

One of the best meals I have eaten in Ireland. Superb food, sophisticated menu but not stuffy, friendly, relaxed atmosphere and impeccable service. And on our doorstep! Can’t wait to come back - though I’m almost afraid to recommend the Chestnut in case we never get a table again.

Our 2nd time to dine there and again it was delicious. Many thanks for the birthday bubbles for my husband's birthday, that was a lovely touch.

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
