Their food is always great. A very nice wine selection. I would have given it excellent but it is a little pricey. Not exorbitant but a little high for what you get.

As a local, born-and-bred nearby, it is a joy to see and experience this reincarnation of Val Manning's foodie haven. While we would feast on ice-pops and sweets as youngsters, we now get stuck into the fantastic meats, cheeses and other fine fare. Manning's showcases the best of local products like Gubbeen meats, Durras cheese and Lorge chocolates. Stop in... More

Lovely place to drink coffee & eat home made cakes! Some lovely food including tapas at the weekend washed down by a lovely bottle of Sancerre! Great attentive staff.

Beautiful layout with mostly locally produced food and good imported wines. It is located near the beautiful resort town of Glengariff and a few miles from Bantry on the Wild Atlantic Way drive and on route to Killarney. It has the feel of a continental roadside café. One can imagine an accordion player just entertaining the patrons!

I was passing at 8am and noticed their special - coffee and sausage roll for €6. But what a roll! Served on a round brioche, it must have been 20cm long, rolled up in a spiral on the bun and garnished with a delicious chutney. Great taste and very good value.

The soup was also better than anything I have tasted in Ireland. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who apreciates good food, well prepared. Also they have a... More

Good food. Good wine and a bit more. Well worth a stop. Loved the gluten free chocolate Seville cake. Nice little choc crunch. Perfect

A couple of weeks ago I was in Ireland attending my Clan Gathering. On Saturday we took a coach tour of Cork and stopped at this place for lunch. They did a nice job of serving a very large group of people that were on a tight time schedule. The service was good and the food was wonderful. This place... More

Went here on the last night of our holiday (camping nearby in Eagle Point) as the evening tapas menu had been recommended to us. Not a huge selection but the plates we ordered were delicious...especially the chorizo. It was a mild evening so we sat outside. There were a couple of guys on the guitar which created a lovely atmosphere.... More
