Fabulous experience. Great food, ambience, friendly, attentive (but not intrusive) and professional staff. A wonderful asset for Ballydehob. Our only reservation about recommending to friends is that we wouldn't want to make it too popular and not to be able to get a reservation

Had an amazing evening in Restaurant Chestnut. It was everything we had hoped for an more. The only issue we had was that when we went to pay there was no option for adding a tip. We had no cash and went to the local garage to take out money but it was closed. Would have loved to have tipped our amazing waitress Katie.

A lovely dinner. The highlights were the raw prawn, the duck's heart and the grapefruit and clove sorbet.

We were absolutely delighted with our recent evening at Restaurant Chestnut. The food was superb, everything from the bread and smoked butter to start to the many delicious courses that followed were truly memorable in both ingredient excellence and presentation. We felt the whole menu flowed really well and the timing of the dishes being brought to table was excellent. An excellent wine list. Friendly and efficient service topped off a great night. We hope to return very soon.

We really enjoyed ourselves at Chestnut and the menu offered a great range of well considered and presented servings along with wine choices. The staff were really friendly and informed on the menu. We were really looking forward to eating in Chestnut and it didn't disappoint. The music is well selected and subtle, perfect for the room we were in and a relaxed environment. I couldn't select a favourite as all servings played an impressive part in the experience. The tasting menu and wine pairing were perfect and I look forward to returning

Both of us still hungry after leaving restaurant and we eat at Michelin restaurants often. Favorite course mussels in tapioca, whiskey and Marmalade and fish dish. Least favourite choc and rubard dessert

The bread and smoked turf butter....divine. Quiet restaurant, excellent helpful but non intrusive service. Great food, the Chou beef was probably the least interesting, the duck and cod the best and the shrimp a bit different. Enjoyed it and very happy to return.

We had a fantastic evening at Restaurant Chestnut. I have, as my wife puts it, "vegan tendencies". We were lucky enough to get a cancellation. So, just the day before the resulting booking, I told the restaurant that any adjustments that they could make would be much appreciated. They provided a menu that was completely vegetarian and that included only small amounts of egg and dairy. Both my wife and I had a wonderful meal, with beautiful creativity and taste. The service was excellent and the staff are fully deserving of their numerous awards. We look forward to visiting again in the future!

Dinner last Friday exceeded all expectations. It was a culinary experience that will be remembered for a long time. The tasting menu was like a symphony orchestra, you were led organically from the starting course of home made bread accompanied by wonderful turf smoked butter through each course culminating in the wonderful cheese finishing dish. Already planning a return visit.
