When entering this restaurant, we got held up by a beautiful black cat sitting in the entry area, very insistent to be petted and with a very funny "mean" look once you stopped. This was already the first highlight of our visit here. It got better when we tried the seafood chowder, which was beyond amazing and one of the best we had during our Ireland trip.
the bar is also very nice for some after-dinner drinks and also sometimes offers live music.

After a disappointing visit last year we decided to check out the West End Bar. The bar on Sunday lunch time was pleasant but one had to listen to the golf on the TV which no one was watching. The owner ( I believe) was very friendly. Unfortunately my wife could not eat a main course as there was no vegetarian option. Given the option of eating a starter is not really up to date. The far restaurant room is very well decorated. After having the soup I visited the toilet and wish I hadn’t.

We made our excuses and left. I do much wanted to have a good meal here as for generations my family lived in Fenit. Sea food is a great offer but vegetarians should not be ignored.
Try again next year.

We stopped here for a late lunch, expecting just a limited menu, but they were still on full service. The service was prompt, friendly and attentive and the food was very good. The only disappointment was the coffee - a common enough feature.

We went for a business dinner with several colleagues and really enjoyed the evening. The staff was friendly and very kind, always asking whether everything was ok or if we needed something else... We ordered as starters oysters and soup and fish and meat. The day’s special was sole an it was really nice. It came with some salad and lovely fries (ey guys, what’s your secret for the fries?) and potatoes. For desserts we had apple pie, ferrero roche cheesecake and pavlovas. Really nice dinner! Well done.
