I had been here before and absolutely loved it. The staff was nice, the food was delicious and we were charmed. That is why we chose it as the location to have our pre-wedding family meal ( we booked it for 13 people 6 months in advance). I was told that a certain time was best for them, I confirmed this by email and by phone and even in person as we walked by that day. When we arrived, we were told no it was actually 30 minutes later and the woman in the front was so rude about it. We would have been fine waiting but her reaction and showing how it was written down and needing to prove she was right was a bit ridiculous. I showed her the several emails I had regarding the agreed upon time and so they tried to accommodate us at the correct time, but insisted on putting us in 2 separate tables on other sides of the restaurant. Why would a pre-wedding meal, of 13 people, want to be sitting apart? We were not happy about that, as it could simply be done by putting two tables together. We found out that they took an extra table of guests before our reservation, and that they were hoping they would be done before us, but when they weren't tried to make it look like we we wrong with the time, and we never expected to sit together. It really seemed like the wrong thing to do, just for a couple of extra bucks. PLUS the food was not that good this time. I actually felt bad for choosing it because no one liked it. We had ok fish, but then we all had like 10 random vegetable/salads on our plates with strong different flavors that didn't make sense to have. It was not like that the last time we went. They were nice to us the rest of the time, but it felt like if we didn't speak up, they would have been happy to get us in and out quickly and didn't care that this was a special night or us where we wanted to be together. I was very dissapointed. We come to Dingle often, and we will not be back.
