Review on O'Connor's Seafood Restaurant & Bar

Opened as a 'bar and grill' way back in 1914, this redoubtable seafood restaurant holds pride of place on Wolfe Tone Square and remains the focus of Bantry's gastronomic scene. The owner of this popular restaurant is Patrick Kiely who was a former head chef.

A tank of live lobsters and oysters sets the tone, the interior is suitably nautical and the menu focuses on fish. Bantry Bay mussels and prawns are collected direct from the boats on the pier; otherwise the main attraction is the list of specials, which might range from sesame seed-crusted John Dory to a duo of sea bass and brill baked with basil hollandaise.

The kitchen also keeps meat fans happy with - say - stuffed pork tenderloin or roast Skeaghanore duck breast with blackberry and red wine vinegar sauce. The informal lunch menu offers soup and sandwiches plus a few simple blackboard specials like fishcakes with chilli dip, roast leg of lamb and grilled salmon.
