Fantastic dinner out as a family of 5. Children were warmly welcomed and offered a wonderful kids menu with colouring & crayons to settle them in. Stunning decor - very simple yet homely and cosy. Love the boat frame light fixture at the largest dining table and the subtle hints of South West Ireland displayed throughout the spacious restaurant. We had great meals - everyone was happy (recommend the lamb burger, the meatballs, the fish pie and the kids mini burgers (they get one of each - chicken and beef - nice touch!)) the milk shakes were a huge hit and the drinks list covers all! 10/10 Kinsale and staff - oh and great tunes too! we loved it!

Overall the ambience was nice but the food was just ok. Not sure if our waiter was overconfident or lacks attentiveness. He only took a mental note of our order and made a mistake with it twice. We ordered lemon tea, he gave us lipton tea so we told him so but still had to ask twice, first for the syrup then the lemon. For dessert, instead of bringing our order of the butterscotch pudding, he brought us apple crumble. By then it was past 9pm so we didn't want to say anything otherwise we had to wait so my husband had the crumble all to himself. It was the saving grace to his underwhelming Angus beef burger and the pork terrine which was way too salty. I did like my seafood pie though. We have never tried Irish food and I wanted to love it. Also, the music was a bit too loud for my liking.

Atmosphere & restaurant setting are really nice. Staff are lovely & service is attentive but not intrusive. Unfortunately the food was average. Husband ordered beef burger & fries which he had eaten on a previous visit but this time it arrived lukewarm & the quality of the meat was not of the same standard. I ordered the spring chicken - totally flavourless, no seasoning at all, a bit of potato, few carrot sticks, 5 green beans, an undercooked onion & very small pot of gravy, very underwhelming. Must say the quinoa salad is amazing - if only all the food were this flavourful! It's a real shame as other dishes I had eaten here previously were really good.

Food was ok but staff need to be more alert and attentive - we tried to order drinks under the "Happy Hour Specials" menu only to be told that those were only for weekends (nowhere was this specified on the menu) and that the weekday HH promo was 30% off any drinks on the menu. So we tried to order cocktails and were then told that the 30% off only applied to house spirits and wine. All this back-and-forth (3 exchanges and we had to wait for the staff to notice us each time) could have been avoided if they had simply stated everything clearly on the menu.

Good food and service. Not really reataurant's fault but there was a birthday party on in the bar area so it was impossible to have a conversation with everyone at the table, we were only 5 people so we should have been able to do this! It would have been good if they could have let us know when I made the booking.

Great food, huge portions which we had been warned about. Lovely atmosphere (quiet). Only complaint was that we were directly under the air conditioning which seemed to get turned on half way through our meal. Asked the waitress if they could turn it back down, which they did. All around very happy.

I visited Kinsale with high expectations due to the excellent reviews from media. The food was cooked well but none of the dishes stood out. I would have given a higher rating if not for our waitress persistence for last orders. My group decided to skip dessert and went to another restaurant a few doors down for dessert and a night cap.

One of the main courses we received was not what we ordered. It was supposed to be pork chop with mash potato sand vegetables, we got pork chop and chips, nothing else. When we asked we were told they had sold out of mash potato. With desert they had sold out of all ice team except chocolate, I hate chocolate ice cream. The food was overpriced and servic was slow. We would not go back.

Food tasted ok but everything came out too quickly without any break in between courses. It made the entire meal feel cheap like aeroplane dinner. A couple enjoying 3 course dinner plus coffee is not meant to be finished in 30 minutes! Fantastic dessert - butterscotch self saucing pudding.

Food and ambiance was lovely, but even though the restaurant was pretty quiet last night, we had to keep looking around for waitstaff. It is always a good experience at Kinsale and I will be/am becoming a regular.

Tables are too small for any group bigger than one person. With water, wine, bread, butter, and more than a couple of dishes on each table, iit was very cramped and not very enjoyable. The lamb burger was rare when it should have been medium. My friend was too hungry to complain. Also, it was more bun than meat. Disappointing.

overall great experience, nice food, portion are big, great happy hour deal. Very accommodating to special birthday requests. Only downside is one staff was a little bit inexperienced but that's not a problem at all.

Good food and friendly service. Ambiance is nice and so is the decor. Parking can be a bit troublesome to find nearby though. Would definitely come back for desserts and try their Brunch.

Nice relaxing ambience which is further enahnced by the proximity to the beach. Good place to chill out with friends. Love the calamari, lava cake and the bread is out of this world!!

Burger was good, pork chop was tough and dry. Kids menu is good and uses great ingredients. They also serve the kids first which is nice. Service is excellent and ambiance is nice. Too bad the food is hit and miss.

Delicious food, lovely friendly service and an excellent casual quiet atmosphere. Huge portions, but what's not to love about that? Really enjoy that neighbourhood, definitely a favourite of mine.

Great atmosphere and hip looking restaurant with tasty, fresh food. The crab cakes were especially good and the mac and cheese was delicious. I'd definitely recommend it.

I expected the venue to be more spacious and originally we were located opposite the kitchen. The table was cramped and the food over priced. I probably won't be going back. I had higher expectations of someone from Cork.

Good location if you are driving there. Food quaility is fair, but base on the price they offer, i think it is a fair deal.

Food portion is comparatively large. Taste good. Service standard need to improve. We raise hand for more than 5 mins until some staff came. All food serve at the same time.

I was very disappointed in my brunch, the eggs were too runny and bread was horrible I sent it back and the meal was a little better but not to the quality I would expect. I have being before and meal was fine but this time it was very poor quality and I will most likely not return.
