Had and excellent meal in Fishy Fishy. High end food, without the pretentiousness. Bright and airy dining room. Had starters and mains, both of which were delicious and of wonderful quality. Locally sourced produce and great pride taken in their locality via produce and art pieces in the restaurant. Great meal all round, and good value for the high quality... More

My boyfriend and I went for dinner in Fishy Fishy over the weekend and found the food absolutely delicious, we could not fault it at all. Best fish we ever had! However we did find that the service was not up to scratch. We had to flag down a waitress to have our main course plates removed after they were... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here. The seafood was incredibly fresh. We shared the smoked salmon plate and the seared scallops. Everything was DELICIOUS! If we didn't live in the states we'd go here all the time. Service was great and prices were reasonable. The village of Kinsale is adorable and totally worth visiting.

My wife and I were told by friends not to miss Fishy Fishy. We were not disappointed, and my wife's dish was the best by a long shot, making it fabulous because mine was great. She had the Thai Prawn meal which was out of this world. A great location, and a great casual atmosphere. Make sure to make reservations.

We dined as a family of 5 recently. We all enjoyed a delicious meal. My girls 7, 8, and 10 all enjoyed the kids menu. The Mussels are delicious, at a minimum have the appetizer so you don't miss them. Be sure to book a table. They fill up and you would be hard pressed to get a table. oh... More

Stopped by here for lunch with my daughter's. Front of house and waitresses were very good. A good variety on the menu and the bowl of seafood chowder was delicious. Not particularly cheap but still highly recommended due to the quality of the food.

Excellent fish and a very welcoming staff on both our visits. It was hard to decide among the many enticing selections. Even the house wine selections were outstanding. Would love to return when we can sit outside but the interior is bright and comfortable.

Thank ODO80
