    Had the most beautiful fish dish which was one of the specials on the menu on 1st January. It was cod fillets with scallops cooked to perfection! Love the fact you can make a reservation online for the bar or restaurant! We ate in the bar! Staff lovely as always!

    Steak cooked to perfection. Area we were seated was behind bar, the snug, perfect for an intimate family meal especially of your kids are restless, you don’t feel like you’re disturbing anyone else. The service is good. Very enjoyable experience.

    Cramped environment but with great view of the sea. Only one choice of fish which was scampi. Draft beer was v nice and staff were friendly but a bit disorganised.

    I got the vegetarian dish, the vegetable cassoulet. It was tasteless. I ate it because I was starving but would not order it again.

    Service really let this place down. Food and drink were nice but we were sat at our booking time, given menus then were not approached for orders for 30 minutes. When we were eventually approached the waitress asked what we would like then as soon as we started to order she rudely turned away from our table to walk over to ask the table next to us for their dessert order before then returning to us. Serving team seemed very disconjointed as we also received a call 15 minutes into our session of waiting to order asking if we would make our booking from another waitress who came and apologised once the realisation had been made.

    The nicest pub grub we've ever had, staff were attentive and pleasant, food was just delicious and big portions. Please book in advance as we saw a lot of people being turned away, it is quite small inside, looking forward to our return already.

    Food was just perfect, way better than we expected it in a bar. Cosy athmosphere, without beeing too „high-classy“. We enjoyed our evening there.

    The menu here was very disappointing. Main courses had options of 2 burgers, curry and steak... fish special was finished (7.45pm?) so cod was the alternative. This is what you would expect in a pub. Food was fine nothing special. Staff were very pleasant and efficient. The uniforms they were wearing were in bad shape.. awful waistcoats that looked like they had better days. If you go to the trouble of providing a uniform make it a clean and neat one and comfortable for the staff that have to wear it

    We were traveling abroad from the US staying in Kilkee. We loved dining at this restaurant.  The atmosphere was eclectic and cozy. We went at an earlier time, so it was a bit quiet, which we enjoyed. The service was excellent. We all really enjoyed our meal as well. We have since recommended this restaurant to others that have travel to Ireland.

    This was without doubt one of the finest dining experiences I ever enjoyed. The restaurant was part of the Bay View hotel, in which my partner and I also stayed, itself another first class experience. The food was excellent, the table at which we were sat had a great view of the bay affording us a mesmerising view of the sunset, even though the hotel itself is not strictly by the bay. The staff were very capable and hard working. If I were to offer a tiny criticism it would only be to say that the menu at the restaurant differed slightly from online but still a top quality affair!
