Kamila and Harry lay the focus firmly on flavour in MOMO. The restaurant is unconventional in terms of its menu, and the fact that there is no primary emphasis on any one style of cooking. Instead, the desire is to make every plate of food as primal as it can be, whether that is something elegant like smoked cod risotto with bacon and maple syrup, or something gutsy like slow cooked beef ribs with roasted parsnips and garlic purée. There is confident panache right across the board, from Dungarvan Ale brined chicken supreme with sausage stuffing to a perfectly poised Catalan fish stew, whilst their excellent menu for children has deservedly been hoovering up awards. Service and value are excellent, and on a busy night the room fizzes with atmosphere.”


We offer a very wide range of dishes including lots of vegetarian/vegan and coeliac (gluten intolerant) options as well as delicious meat and fish dishes. All our sauces, soups, condiments and dressings are freshly made from scratch in our kitchen. We are open every day except Mondays.


For lunch we have daily super salads, healthy & delicious sandwiches and soups as well as some old favourites like our delicious chicken burger and our famous meaty hash salad (trust us, you really wanna try this one!). We know lunch breaks are short and sweet, so we won’t keep you waiting!

In the evenings, we like to lower the lights, slow down the music and light up the candles and bring out the evening menus featuring some truly decadent slow cooked meat dishes, luxurious desserts and of course our wide range of vegetarian, vegan and dairy-free dishes.

We offer a wide selection of slow cooked meats including our famous slow cooked beef short ribs (melt in the mouth!), cured chicken, pork and lamb. Look our for our daily specials which include some mouthwatering creations, all cooked with love and care.

We pick and choose from the finest locally caught fish for our menu every day. We’re blessed to have an abundance of fishing villages within a few minutes drive of the restaurant, so we say fresh, we mean fresh!

We understand how difficult in can be to enjoy a meal with friends if you have dietary needs, which is why our menu includes a wide range of dairy-free and gluten free options. Most of our dishes can be adapted to suit any dietary requirements, please don’t hesitate to ask!


Our vegetarian options are more than just an afterthought. Each dish has been planned with care and attention to ensure the herbivores can enjoy a satisfying and delicious dining experience. Most of our dishes can be tweaked for vegans too. And don’t worry, when we say vegetarian, we mean it! You won’t find chicken stock in our vegetable soup!
