Fodor's Review

Although only minutes by foot from the main road and Goleen's village center, this harborside retreat is a peaceable kingdom—expect to see herons outside the window. "Fresh fish and wine on the harbour" is the motto here. The restaurant, in Sue Hill's modern house (she also offers bed and breakfast) is well run and extremely civilized. In summer, fresh local seafood stars on the menu, including John Dory pan fried with balsamic butter, and scallops with smoked bacon

cream sauce. Lobster is another specialty. Instead of a wine list, you choose a bottle from the annotated racks along the wall. Off-season (November–March) dinner must be booked in advance.
