Have been here three times and have enjoyed every experience. The selection of specials is always impressive and food is always incredibly tasty. Visited here on NYE and found the place to be very welcoming. I got the chowder, which was delicious. Some places put lots of cream into chowder and I found the one I got was delicious and... More

My mother booked this restaurant for 2 separate special occasions at the beginning of this year (as she used to like this restaurant but how things have changed!). On both occasions we were phoned last minute the morning of each only to be cancelled due to not enough bookings for these days !! No excuse. It was utter disappointment. Only... More

We had to close one day this year in January as there was a dead in the family. So I don't know what restaurant you are ringing as it is not ours. As for the hair on the plate we did apologise and on closer inspection we saw that the hair was blonde and nobody in the kitchen or on... More

This was our first visit to Bantry and we eat at O'Connor's on our first night in town. Next time we travel to Bantry it will be an essential to visit. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. I began with the Seafood Chowder ... served piping hot with an equal mix of vegetables and chunks of fish. Lovely. I chose... More

A really lovely meal, a genuine seafood chowder broth, with delicate natural flavours. A main course of Hake with an unusual fish topping aded interest but did not spoil a really lovely Hake flavour on the plate. Service was friendly and chatty despite the busy workload, a real treat.

My daughter is a coeliac. A lot of places claim to know about gluten free, few really understand the full requirement. My frustration is when people think that it's a fad rather than a medical condition. This restaurant had loads of gluten free options, including wonderful tasting bread ( if your gluten intolerant, you know what I mean). They were... More

Nobody at the table could fault any part of the meal it was all presented in an excellent manner and cooked to perfection. You can clearly tell how this restaurant had been nominated so many awards. Portions and price were both excellent, we will all definitely be returning 👍

I went for the 'Early Bird' dinner (2 courses for 20E). I ordered Seafood Chowder followed by Fish & Chips in beer batter plus a glass of house Chardonnay. The bread offered was a slice of soda bread or a slice of white bread with sun dried tomatoes & cheese. I chose the latter, which was good & came with... More
