Great Michelin experience for vegetarians. The Chef is an artist & service was wonderful. Wine pairing is a must.
Very pleased. Wonderful creative food. Excellent service. Only pity we were driving so couldn't have wine pairing!
Our visit was a complete escape from all the COVID craziness, everything was so safe but also very relaxed and easygoing. We couldn't say enough about the food, every single morsel was amazing but the star of the show for us was the spiced beef and young buck, so delicious. Thanks for a really lovely experience.
This was our first experience of fine dining at this level and it couldn't have been more positive. We are vegetarian and were blown away by the special tasting menu that was created for us. Local ingredients never tasted so exotic, with flavours distilled, intensified and combined to bring out their natural essence. Processes and pairings are explained with warmth and pride and not a hint of pomposity. The welcome was relaxed and genuine, the decor classy and understated, retaining a sense of cosiness in what was once a pub; the perfect destination for the wet and chilly Autumn evening on which we visited.
Absolutely loved our evening at Chestnut. The food really was outstandingly good. And it’s great to experience this bright light in the culinary scene in west cork . Service attentive but not intrusive and staff well informed on the food, it’s sources etc
The tasting menu was an amazing experience. Possibly one of the nicest meals I’ve ever had. The service was exceptional too. We will definitely be back again when we’re in West Cork. Thanks for a lovely evening!
Outstanding meal as expected. Never disappoints.
We were a party of four and we LOVED The Chestnut Tree. We felt very safe regarding Covid 19 and we all loved all the courses except "mussels with caviar and dill" which we all thought was a bit too oily. We thought the smoked butter was a revelation and we were all fascinated by "brambles with meadowsweet and sabayon! We found the wine list a bit unusual and there was no rose available. And we felt the toilets could do with a bit of updating. Please accept these comments as feedback and not as criticisms! We will be returning very soon and would give the Chestnut Tree five stars - especially for people who like trying new ingredients and who are adventurous eaters.
Superb experience. The best lamb I have ever tasted. Very high quality dishes and cooking talent along with simple and elegant decor. Friendly, able but still relaxed staff as well. Looking forward to going back.
We had a wonderful dining experience. Such a treat. All the food was amazing. I particularly liked the fish course and the whiskey granita. The service is impeccable and it is a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Nothing is rushed. And spacing due to covid restrictions is excellent. Would highly recommend as a treat
The chestnut was an amazing experience, up there with the best I've tasted
Incredible food with a fantastic atmosphere. Only slight annoyance is that you couldn't put tip on the card. It had to be cash only. The staff lost out a bit because of this,
Wonderful evening again. Fully compliant with Vivid restrictions, and retained its lovely friendly atmosphere. Food was wonderful. A great experience
Great experience! Will be back, again!
A most enjoyable evening with friends. Divine cuisine, faultless service and wonderful ambiance.

Most enjoyable dining experience! Couldn’t fault anything...warm welcome, lovely ambience, Chef Rob taking time out of the kitchen to tell us about the food and answer our questions, not to mention the journey through a variety of taste explosions.... such a memorable evening.
The food was amazing Thankyou so much. Oh how I wish that I could cook like that! & all the staff were so nice & a lovely friendly atmosphere. We really enjoyed it & we will definitely be back again. Thanks so much again.
As always a very special night.
Thoroughly enjoyable meal. Fantastic food, service and ambiance. Would highly recommend. One thing to note Is that it is not possible to leave a tip on a credit card, and the shop in the village that has an atm closes at 10pm, so bring cash !
Amazing food! The whole evening was an incredible experience.
