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.

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.

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.

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.
