Very Tasty

Posted on 01 / 15 / 2015

I thought Cul Gairdin was cute and delicious. My boyfriend and I got the E18.50 three-course dinner special. I had split pea soup, a garlicky cheese crepe, and a chocolate biscuit cake, while he had the soup, a honey walnut goat cheese crepe, and the apple rhubarb crumble. The food was awesome and we got way more than we could eat. I liked how even the desserts were marked as vegan or not, and they source all their produce from local farms. I would definitely eat here again.

We went to this place because we had found a flyer at the internet cafe advertising it. We really liked the atmosphere and African style interior and music that was on when we were there.
The staff seemed to be quite new, for she didn't know much about what was vegan and what wasn't and had to go and ask for the information a couple of times plus she wasn't too friendly either.
Unfortunately, there weren't many vegan options. Out of the main courses just one dish - an Asian style noodle and veggie stir fry which was tasty.
There was also a range of freshly squeezed juices - very nice!
As for desert I got vegan apple crumble - tasty and the only vegan choice.

So the place is actually quite nice, especially since it's the only one of its kind in Dingle, if it weren't for the following reasons why I am only giving three cows:

a) There were two fish dishes on the menu. Out of about ten to twelve main courses in total. In a place called "vegetarian cafe" the least thing I want to see on the menu is dead animals. And having more non-veggie than vegan options is just strange in a "veggie" cafe. The flyer had advertised "vegan and gluten free optionS (plural) available daily"
b) The prices. I know that Ireland is an expensive country but paying 38€ for two people is quite a bit.

Anyway, if you're in Dingle, why not give it a try if you feel like spending money.

Pros: fresh and healthy food, nice atmosphere
Cons: fish on the menu, few vegan options
