I can only say good things about Lobster Pot. Service. Extremely friendly and efficient. Food. Faultless. Have the black pudding mouse! Chowder very authentic...none of the stodgy nonsense found in most places. Very clean and well presented. One tip, Mr and Mrs Lobster Pot...lose the diddly-aye musak! Looking forward to my next trip.

So disappointed with our visit here today. Place was almost empty which I thought unusual for a sunny Saturday evening in July. There were two of us, we both had deep fried Brie to start, priced at €9.25 we thought it would be a good serving but 4 cubes not much bigger than an oxo cube arrived with a little salad to garnish. I had a very tasteless crab and shrimp salad, which I am sure was made using frozen fish. My other half had the crab mornay which he said was just ok. There was no fresh fish on the menu or any meat option. Service was very fast, too fast for my liking. Staff were polite but not friendly. It is a lovely place to visit for a drink but not worth wasting your money on the food.

Been here many times but not for dinner in the last few years. We were part of a group of 5 couples 'celebrating' the end of summer and we had a fantastic night. We started with a couple of drinks outside before being brought in the back to a great table. The atmosphere, food and service were all excellent, but the prices are almost embarrassingly high given the location and the economic times. These prices will definitely ensure that such visits remain a special 'treat' rather than a regular event. On the plus side, I had the crab mornay to start - never had better and there was lots of it. Had the monkfish as a main, gorgeous, but could have done with a bit more fish, particularly given that it was about €27. Great food and great night, everyone in our group had a good experience, but can only imagine that the prices are putting people off. The Guinness was excellent, for those interested in pints.

A memorable visit, first impressions, clean and well run. Menu is overpriced through all courses with no value offers. Fish starters were saturated in sauces, underripe tomatoes. Very defiant when feedback was offered. Will not return.

Having been to the Lobster Pot many times, this old favourite was very disappointing on a recent visit. Stopping in for a trusted bowl of seafood chowder four of us were sorely let down by the distinct lack of any seafood or shellfish in any of our bowls. Subsidising our soup with a side order of some under-cooked potato wedges did little to improve our glum impressions. Perhaps the restaurant (rather than bar) presents a more favourable offering but for the price we paid, we could have had a hearty main course in one of the many high calibre restaurants in nearby towns.

On recommendation went for sunday lunch/brunch. Were given seats in dark back area and extortionately priced menu. We decided as we were here and had travelled a long way to stay put that food had to be good if they were charging these HIGH prices. Food was average..... and definitely OVER PRICED. What was also annoying was we were not asked if we wanted lunch from a la carte menu or something from bar/sandwich menu. Also we were not told about specials on "board" it felt like outsiders give them the big menu. It would have been nice to have been offered a choice as the table next to us were by their waitress. Definitely won't be back or would not recommend. Definitely overpriced.

Went well out of our way to try this place having consulted Sally & John's guide and have to say was thoroughly disappointed. We were beetling down to Ferns for an antiques auction and side tracked to try out their recommendation. Ok so it does have a certain amount of charm on arrival... the place is adorned with traditional Irish tat and pokey rooms lead into more pokey rooms but the food and service leave a lot to be desired. Having read the extortionately priced lunch menu we decided to share a starter... seafood chowder at almost 9 Euro a bowl was boring... while packed with seafood and thankfully lacking the filler potato, it was under seasoned and way too hot rendering the shellfish rubbery and the salmon mealy. I ordered a starter as a main, shrimp and crab salad. Very under whelming but grand and well overpriced at almost 13 euro. Himself went for lobster which was completely over cooked. Having spent 40 euro on the lobster it's a disgrace to have it overcooked. Initial service was great but our waiter changed and was cold to the point of being snooty. Side dish of red cabbage was over done in the microwave rendering it dried out on the top but quite nice underneath and chips which were the only highlight! We were expecting perfectly cooked seafood but came away having had a good bowl of chips! none of the staff attended to us during the meal ... even to ask if we were enjoying the food .. which is surprising since we were the only people in the restaurant. I would suggest they need less staff...way too many and they looked like golf club staff! The only thing that makes this memorable is that it's the first time Sally and Peter's guide let us down.

The Lobster Pot is situated in a lovely place, near Carne Beach. It looks lovely on the outside, old worldly and with lots of flowers and it is equally as atmospheric on the inside. The menu reads very well with lots of fish dished but it is very expensive. We both had the Crab Mornay. It is listed on the Starters menu ( price €13.95) but it comes with a brown scone so it was substantial enough for a light lunch. It was really lovely, creamy and cheesy and with lots of crab meat. If I were marking on the Crab Mornay alone I would mark the food 5 out of 5, but we have eaten there before.

Mu husband and I went for dinner to this restaurant last Tuesday night. As usual the food was delicious and the service very good. We have been many times before, but not recently and all is still great. I had the crab mornay and my husband had the scallops and smoked haddock- both excellent. We will be back.

Delicious food and really cosy atmosphere and vibe. Enjoyed a dinner of Turbot washed down with a pint of Guinness. The fish was really fresh and cooked perfectly with a lemon butter sauce. The waiting staff were very attentive. I will be back many times!!

Was in the pot for dinner. Have eaten here a few times before both for lunch and dinner. It is not a particularly friendly place. The service is brisk and businesslike and they like tables that turnover quick and customers that pay even quicker and leave. That aside the food is very good in general. As it is classic bistro food it is evident to those familar with classic dishes that they occasionally cut corners to keep costs low (don't look for white wine vinegar in the french onion soup). The fish is excellent and provide the best of local. The dining area is not great but the pot has plenty of character. I don't have kids but I have to say that I really dislike restaurants that have a stated policy against children. It can always be managed sensitively and it just sends out a terrible message in my opinion to families and tourists. It is a good spot and it is worth eating in but while the food is good don't expect to be made to feel special.

Had lunch here recently, probably the only complaint is that the lunch menu is much more limited than the evening menu, and it's not possible to go in the evening with an 8 year old, even one who loves fish! We had the following: Oysters Chowder Whitebait Crab Mornay Shrimp and Crab Cocktail The Oysters were excellent, meaty and very tasty, raw naturally, although they can be grilled, if you prefer. The Chowder is also excellent and a meal in itself. Whitebait are delicious, recommended even though I know not to most peoples taste. Crab Mornay is outstanding. Shrimp and Crab cocktail, good but not great, heavy on the marie rose sauce and lettuce, and not so heavy on the fish. Excellent brown scones on the side also. Briefly, the food is generally excellent, although pretty pricy. But as with most things in life, I guess you get what you pay for.......!

This restaurant is in the middle of the countryside and does not take bookings so you have to have a lot of patience on a saturday night to hold on for a table. We found it worth the wait. The food was beautiful but a little pricey - between the 4 of us, we had cod , scollops, monkfish and salmon. The side order of red cabbage alone was worth the visit and there was a good choice of wines. Have to mention the barman who tried to get us a taxi but failed so drove us home! Now that's good service.
