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 �

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.

This is a hidden gem. On our way to Skibbereen we made a special detour to here. Our 1st visit and we were not disappointed. On the strand with fab views we were able to walk off our dinner. The decor is quirky and fun. At peak times you may have to wait for table but so worth it. All the staff were very pleasant and friendly. We had 1 of the sharing platter the nicest and freshest fish I think I've ever tasted. very reasonably priced. Home made chips were yum. will definitely be going here again.

On Sunday 16th July, a group of ~35 of us rocked up, impromptu, to the Fish Basket. We were several nationalities visiting from the International Space University. The staff responded wonderfully, and with the best attitude. They took our orders patiently, as some of us had little English. Food was delivered efficiently and was beautifully fresh, crispy batter on the fish and perfectly cooked chips, followed by a slice of divine chocolate cake. The location was perfect, beautiful view over rosscarbery, bathroom facilities, and even coffee! For some it was their first experience of fish and chips, others were fish and chip veterans, but everyone agreed the food was excellent! Thanks to everyone at the fish basket for their amazing hospitality and for making us all feel so welcome, oh and the full tummies! ��

We are so delighted to have the Fish Basket so close by . We had a fabulous lunch today: Scampi and chips And crab claws and mussels . Both dishes were amazing. So fresh , just as fish should be. And real chips: not from a frozen bag... Great addition to local food scene. Well done all there!!!

1 star for fresh fish - avoid "platter - enough for 2" - ?? 2 toddlers perhaps - minus 4 stars for poor value

We were directed to The Fish Basket a couple of years ago when you were in the van and we were very impressed with the scampi and chips! Rediscovered you yesterday at Long Strand and it was as impressive. Portions were very generous and the food was gorgeous. Congratulations on the new location and best wishes for 2019.

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!
