Culinary alchemy at its best! 10/10
This was our second visit and now we are living here we intend to visit more often. Fabulous food a real treat so close to home.Simple menu expertly delivered, the whiskey sour a light creamy sensation! We are appreciated the relaxed attitude and lack of stuffiness...please don't change! P.S. There's a typo on this page declaring you're closed from Jan 18 which should be jan 19.
The food was absolutely delicious. The setting was cosy and the staff were excellent. A great experience all around. We will definitely be back.
We had a very pleasant meal thank you.
A wonderful night from start to finish. The relaxed ambience , decor and service all serve to highlight the amazing artistry that you receive on your plate and explodes in your mouth. How lucky we are,thank you.
Everything was perfect, the food was delicious, the service friendly and professional, and the atmosphere was ideal for a long meal with some wine.
Food sublime flavors, prepared to perfection. Timing spot on.
Our Atmosphere rating was more about the layout than the friendliness. No doubt the desire to maintain the ‘pub’ design meant that things were a little functional. The food was amazingly good and for the price outstanding. Will definitely come again
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening in your restaurant. Lovely décor and atmosphere and we really liked the music that was playing. Our waitress from Ballydehob was superb - professional yet friendly - thank you. Just one point - with alcohol restrictions when driving, its nice to really savour a glass or two of wine - our waitress kindly let us taste a few wines however we had to try a couple before we found ones we really liked - so you might have another look at your wine by the glass list. Thank you again for a wonderful evening
Wanted to try this place from the minute it opened. Was not disappointed. Food was exceptional. Definitely recommend the taster menu. Can’t wait to go back
Fantastic dining experience at incredible value for money. Staff so friendly yet professional in a lovely setting. Could not fault our evening.
This was our third time dining at Chesnut. It seems to be getting better each time. Service is excellent - food wonderful and we will be back.
Excellent as always.
Everything was excellent, thanks for a lovely evening!
Nice, intimate, friendly place. All the food was very good and beautifully cooked without ever having the 'wow' factor. Too many tiny blobs of of things for my taste and I left hungry. It was all a little bit precious and some carbohydrates would have been welcome. I thought the cod and potato 'snack' was excellent as was the deliciously pink and succulent venison. The wine we ordered was very good but probably overpriced. I can see that with so few covers and cooking of this standard they are probably not making a lot of money at this price point so I hope they make a go of it. It's a welcome addition to the West Cork culinary scene and we enjoyed the experience. We won't be rushing back but probably will go again sometime.
An excellent evening. We enjoyed everything - food, drink and the service was friendly and personal. The cod and venison stood out...
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed it very much. Will be back soon.
delightful evening. lovely ambiance and food to match. look forward to visiting again.
Truly lovely evening; the venue is charming especially the room at the front, the food was exceptional and the service attentive without being intrusive. The fact that my husband doesn't eat seafood was not a problem. The evening lived up to expectation and, indeed, exceeded it. We will be back.
Charming and attentive staff. Superb food.
Good to have such a class restaurant within easy drive. Will be back,often.
Fabulous meal and service. 10/10.
The tasting menu was such a wonderful experience ...enjoyed every bite ...everything was explained in detail and adjusted according to any dietary requirements ...it was such a special night one to remember ...our waitress Therese was very informative and we had the honour in chatting to Elaine who was so humble on receiving their Mitchelin star ...i wish them every sucess
Fantastic food and excellent service.
