I had lunch with my friends in this restaurant. The staff was so nice and helpful. I ordered a Silician pizza, it was big enough and good. For dessert I ordered tiramisu and it was not so good, it tasted not like the real tiramisu, it is the only think that I didn't enjoy.

Walked in looking for a table for 6 on a Wednesday at 7:30pm when other restaurants in Bantry were closed. Restaurant was full, we were put on a waiting list with possible waiting time of 45 minutes but were seated within 40 minutes. The staff even though they were extremely busy were friendly and attentive. A wide range of meals... More

It was a Good Friday and everything was closed. We took in to have a bite. Well, the place is ok but I can't say "wow". My husband ate pizza and I took a salad. Personal was absolutely friendly. Food was ok.

Walked in without an appointment and three very hungry children. We were offered a table for an hour which was perfect. Our order was taken quickly and the waiting staff couldn't have been more helpful with drink changes and special requests. The food was fresh but quick to the table and it even though we all opted for basic dishes,... More

We had a meal with friends here and it was lovely. It is a bit more expensive than some other restaurants. There could be a little more choice on the menu for plain food I.e a roast chicken/port etc and perhaps more fish choice as being on the bay you'd hope to have more fresh fish on the menu. Otherwise... More

loved this place. Food was excellent and did not reflect the lower prices. The fish and chips was a real winner for me and it was only €12 which was amazing for what you got. other dishes were super as well. basic surroundings but you wont be disappointed.

Seldom do we get all three starters and all three mains to be of an exceptional standard - but The Brick Oven's fare was just that. Delicious soups, Gorgeous mussels and prawns with basmati rice, a delicious tomatoey penne and a terrific smoked chicken quesadilla were all bursting with flavour and fragrance. Holds West Cork's end up as a culinary... More

Great atmosphere in here. We all had Pizzas and they were fab. Tried to tip the staff and they would have none of it. Great banter and food.

We were in Ireland for a wedding as a family we arrived as a large group and thy were able to accommodate us. Some as split groups but nonetheless. I had the mussels which were fab and the seafood gratin which was very tasty. My other half had the pizza. It was packed with toppings and very well cooked in... More

Just popped in on a Sunday for a quick bite of lunch, was full but they found me a table really quickly, the Seafood Chowder was delicious, service friendly and unassuming.
