The over all experience was positive apart from the red meat alternatives for my partner - wagyu beef was replaced with diced beetroot, ham fat for - nothing and the most disappointing of all, wild deer for a two inch piece of roasted cauliflower. very disappointing from her side considering the price and and status of the restaurant.
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.
It was an excellent experience . We all really enjoyed it. Every dish was excellent.
Great experience! Would definitely go again!

Great dining experience
Fabulous evening out, not rushed , let to enjoy the food . Would definitely recommend a visit .
A wonderful culinary experience. Knowledgeable staff who explained in detail each course. Very relaxed atmosphere. This was a birthday treat for my wife and we both loved the evening. Thank you.
The best dining experience I had ever had. Really enjoyed every part of the whole evening
We love this restaurant. The atmosphere is relaxing. The staff are very attentive without being intrusive. The food really lives up to its Michelin star - intense flavours burst from every mouthful and at the end of the meal you feel immensely satisfied without being bloated. Can't recommend it highly enough.
Excellent evening with amazing food and delightful staff.
The two young ladies serving us deserve al the stars in the sky. They made the evening to a very pleasant experience. The quality of the food was outstanding but all too small portions to enjoy the tastes, hardly more than a spoonful each time. There was a lot of nearly nothing.... Even though the quality and presentation could not be faulted, there were no tastes that I will remember. Also value for money at 130 Euros per person for food and wine is much more expensive than some of the top restaurants I visited. Having said all this, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish
A gem that makes a weekend gateway well worth it. Unbelievably tasty food, complimented by perfectly understated service. Well done!
An incredible experience! Would highly recommend. The creativity and attention to detail is like nothing we have experienced.
Really interesting and delicious menu. Very comfortable environment and plenty of table space allocated for each person. Prompt service without being overly fussy. A nice relaxing meal experience.
Great as always
