Restaurant Chestnut is found in our beautiful home of West Cork.

Restaurant Chestnut is a small intimate restaurant located in a character filled former pub in Ballydehob. Inspired by nature and the landscape that surrounds us, our menu is designed around the finest ingredients that are seasonally best. Grown, raised and gathered from West Cork's spectacular rich larder and from the island of Ireland. We constantly strive to work with nature and to have a minimal waste approach.

Rob grew up just a few miles down the road from our Restaurant. Rob learned his skills of curing, smoking and fermenting from his Father, Frank Krawczyk. His father's Polish heritage, his family's culinary history along with his mother's artistry, have influenced his cooking. 

Our story is one rooted in tradition, creativity and family.
