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 �

    positive review  Pleased to visit The Fish Basket in these premises. A step up from a car park by the N71. Have been looking forward to coming here on our holiday in Ireland. The fish tacos were excellent. Friendly service. The cakes were really good as well.

    Had the sharing box. Two large pieces of hake, scampi, mushy peas and chips. Plenty for 2 and only €15. Fish was so tasty and fresh! Amazing view as well !

    positive review  Loved everything. The atmosphere Very friendly and efficient staff The quality of the fish and chips. Coffee, hot chocolate and cakes. All against the backdrop of the majestic wild Atlantic hitting Long Strand. Hats off for taking on the challenge and an example of build it (well) and they will come.

  • Fish was beautiful, cod, I don't eat cod, but person who had it said it was very good. Shame the chips were the frozen variety. Have to have fresh chips for a good "fish and chips" . I had a burger, which itself was lovely. Unfortunately, it was saturated with some kind of sauce and cheese added, which I did not ask for or want. I will be back there and be more specific when I order. Fresh chips please.

  • Absolutely gorgeous food. Well worth a visit. Kids loved the hens, pigs + sand area. Selection of fish + chips just delicious. We ate here twice in our few days in Clonakilty. It was just that good we had to go back!
