Man Friday Review
Yes, the name refers to Kinsale's alleged connection with the original Robinson Crusoe, Alexander Selkirk, for the town was reputedly his last port of call before shipwreck. Set about 1 km (½ mile) outside town, next to the Spaniard Inn on a hilltop overlooking the harbor, the restaurant focuses at dinner on steaks and seafood, prepared in an unpretentious Continental style. A rustic downhill walkway leads to a series of intimate interconnected rooms and a terrace. The €26.50 early-bird menu (weekdays from 5:30 to 7:30, Saturday to 6:30, and Sunday all evening) is booked out most nights by savvy locals. The generous portions and the warm atmosphere make this the sort of place you'll want to revisit.
