We are serving fresh fish & chips locally sourced from West Cork.

Cooking is an art and patience a virtue. Careful shopping, fresh ingredients and an unhurried approach are nearly all you need.
There is one more thing - love. Love for food and love for those you invite to your table.
With a combination of these things, you can be an artist.

They all our food

Just a few of many positive comments about our food!

    Unbeatable value, the fish and chips was really lovely, just as the coffee. Prices are very friendly, and the location is just great. Highly recommended �

    Myself,husband and two boys went there tonight! The food was wonderful and the coffee very good . Staff was very friendly and helpful. We also was very impressed with location and the play pit for the lads. Toilet was very clean and I was surprised how chilled out the place was. We will be back as this is local to us and the fresh cod was the best we have had in some time. Great place well done x

    positive review  Friendly attentive staff in beautiful surroundings and that’s before my delicious food even arrived. I got the fish tacos. They were so fresh and tasty I had them devoured in minutes. I’ll definitely be returning. Highly recommend stopping here.

    positive review  Enjoyed a fabulous lunch in the Fish Basket yesterday, sandwiched in between 2 walks on the spotless, wild & wonderful beach. Helena was very welcoming & I enjoyed the Special of the day - HUGE prawns & crab claws in garlic butter with chips! I was in Heaven - Looking forward to going back!

    positive review  What a great place. Front of house lady is very friendly and welcoming. It was mad busy but we got a nice little table for two; waited about thirty minutes for out food but it was well worth the wait; no fuss, no frills just honest, simple and tasty food in a fab location. An absolute cracker of a business.
