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 a laid-back feel. It’s a small place, seating just 18, with the bar counter at the front hinting at its past, and shelves laden with wine, mead and all manner of jars, inside which produce which is marinating, curing or fermenting.
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 the desserts, dishes reflect the local region. Chatty, amiable service – led by Elaine – fits perfectly with the food.
