The fish and seafood at Fishy Fishy are as fresh as can be. Excellent service and perfectly chosen wine list. Take a table in the alfresco area on a warm day. A very pleasant dining experience.

This was our first dinner of the trip, and probably the best. Fishy Fishy is a small, cozy restaurant with incredible food. The seafood chowder was the best of the trip (I believe I had chowder 4 or 5 times during the week). The staff is great

I have eaten here twice, the first time before they renovated the dining room, which I believe has taken away some of it's charm. Nevertheless, the food is outstanding and the service is warm and friendly. Yes, it is expensive but worth it.

Much enjoyed our very tasty lunch and excellent Irish hospitality. I had what was like a mac and cheese but with fish instead, and a beer. Very good way to enjoy lunch.

Exceeded expectations. Really good food, good value and great service. It is also a nice environment. Great experience. I write infrequently...only if really good or irritatingly bad in some way. This was happily very good!

I think this was the best seafood restaurant I've been so far. The service, the quality of the food, the taste, everything was outstanding. Prices are not low, however, the food is certainly worth it.

We spent three days in Kinsale and had breakfast, lunch and dinner out each day. On the last evening we went to Fishy Fishy as the restaurant we had previously eaten in closed at 5pm on a Sunday. I can honestly say we were extremely disappointed. Not only was it the worst meal of our trip but the service was... More

This was recommended by our hotel and it didn't disappoint. We didn't book but it was not busy on a Saturday lunchtime. Staff were really welcoming, the place was modern, clean and bright. I had the fish chowder and my wife the fish (cottage?) pie. Both were excellent.
