Bistros originated in Paris and are defined as ‘’small restaurants serving moderately priced simple meals in a modest setting’. Previously know as ‘Auntie May’s’, the bistro now offers range of foods from local water buffalo burgers through seasonal game and fresh locally landed fish. Vegan dishes are a specialty, as are the breads, baked each morning in the bistro kitchen.
The walls display rarely seen early works by, among others, local artists Tim Goulding, Cormac Boydell, Maurice Henderson and John Kingerly of Allihies as well as the primitive painter the late Michael Sheehan of Eyeries, some of whose works are available in limited edition prints. Large scale photographs printed on canvas of local land and seascapes and of the area’s antiquities are also for sale at moderate prices, posted to a visitor’s home.
We strive to source all our food from local and artisan sources, preferably using Fair Trade, organic or free range products.
‘Be welcome – eat well’. With traditional Irish cuisine , seafood and vegetarian/vegan options it offers a welcoming setting catering for all.
