MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Having travelled the world, locally-born Rob Krawczyk (son of famous charcutier Frank) returned to his roots and, along with his partner Elaine, transformed this run-down old pub in the heart of West Cork into a sweet, intimate restaurant with an elegant style and a relaxed feel. It’s a small place, seating just 18, and the bar counter at the front still hints at its past as a pub. Rob has a great understanding of textures and flavours and his dishes are skilfully prepared yet pleasingly understated, with a focus on pure, natural flavours. The constantly evolving tasting menu champions County Cork and from the turf-smoked butter right through to desserts, his dishes really reflect the local region. The chatty, amiable service – led by Elaine – fits perfectly with the food.
