Reviewed By Maurizio A

We chose this restaurant since it was one that specifically was listed as being kid friendly. Having a two year old with us made this imperative. We were definitely not disappointed. The restaurant is situated in a very narrow road in Dingle so parking might be a little bit of a problem but do not be discouraged because it is worth the trouble of finding a parking spot. Food was excellent as was the atmosphere which is very relaxed and laid back. We got plain pasta for our daughter which she devoured. Great chowder and fantastic mains. The waiter recommended me a craft beer to accompany my main which was to die for. Reasonably priced as well. Not to be missed if in Dingle but make sure you make a reservation in order to avoid disappointment.

Dined here twice it was so nice whilst on our three night stay on the Dingle Peninsula. The service is excellent, we had a lovely friendly young red headed waitress. The food is very fresh, tasty and hearty. Both days I had fish and it was so fresh and beautifully cooked. My husband had chicken burger the first day which he enjoyed and a steak the second time which was he claimed the best steak he had in a long time. Highly recommend

The Chart House

Reviewed By G4458ORstevea

We have been traveling in Ireland for a week now, and we continue to be pleasantly surprised and delighted by the wonderful dining experiences we have enjoyed. The Chart House was another great dining experience; one of the best! I had the pork belly and my wife had the chicken. We each had cauliflower and blue cheese soup. We both really enjoyed our dishes. They have a terrific selection of wines and we were able to get our favourite Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.The service excellent! The Chart House is very deserving of its high Trip Advisor rating.

As you do, you try to find a place for brunch on a Sunday in Gastro town Dingle.Was it not for the added complication its the Sunday after the main sports event in Dingle " The Marathon" . We circled around Dingle we found the Pantri. There was a bit of queue as the place is compact shall we say, but on arrival we got offered a table outside .. Now Sundays weather was not like the day before, it was Irish Mist. For those that don't know what that is its mist that falls down as very fine rain (only in Ireland) We were not deterred, under the umbrella outside we went , my sons concluded we will not die of a bit of rain and we will be okay. ( 10 & 12 ,hardy men)The food is gorgeous, I had the black pudding on sour dough and my wife had the eggs Benedict.. the lads were happy with a hot chocolate. We were impressed with the food and the taste, we will be back for sure before the next marathon . PS. Dress for the weather and the occasion , its was worth sitting under the umbrella in the mist.. Do visit the pantri cafe..

Land To Sea

Local cuisine, influenced by the finesse of European cookery but rooted in Irish traditions, our take on food is based in the belief that everyone should be afforded the opportunity to experience foods grown, raised, caught, and foraged by their neighbour

After days of eating deep fried fish in pubs, it was a pleasure to have a high quality fresh monk fish dinner. Everything from the wine to the appetizer to the main dish to the dessert equaled or surpassed seafood restaurants in major cities. Recommend the early bird dinner for a cost effective meal

We were hungry around 9:30 pm, and most places don’t serve food that late. We were very happy to be able to order nosh. The 9” arugula (rocket), chicken, pesto pizza was not only appreciated, but it was DELICIOUS too! Perfect size for two people in need of a late-evening snack. The harbor-front location is nice, too.

The Fish Box / Flannery's Seafood Bar

Reviewed By Elizabeth G

Everybody here is so nice. The place is super clean. The portion were massive - like 3 serving per plate for most people. Everything was tasty. The soups were spiced to perfection and the fish really good. I didn’t realize all the fish is served fried, which isn’t my favorite but it still was all really good and so fresh.

1st visit with a group of friends. Food left a lot to be desired. Meat quality very very poor and small portions for the price charged. Had ran out of the chowder and a mains choice,fairly poor for a bank holiday weekend. Guinness was lovely and location great.

The Stonehouse Restaurant

Reviewed By sennockred

This is a popular stop on the Sea Head Drive so don't be surprised if its really busy and there's a bit of a wait. Its worth it for the freshly prepared food.The open crab sandwich and the open smoked salmon sandwich are both superb and large enough to get you through the rest of the day even if you are exercising and building up an appetite.
