Diva Cafe, Ballinspittle. Review by John McKenna

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

No one makes a taco like Shannen Keane. No one makes a wrap like Ms Keane. And no one makes a Reuben like the Diva Reuben you can enjoy here, in the newly-reopened Diva, in little Ballinspittle. You might say its Ms Keane’s American heritage – she’s from Seattle – that helps her glide with such ease over these dishes, but it’s more than that: she shows respect to things others believe don’t need to be taken seriously. She knows that making a great taco – with flank steak, with Korean seasoning – is a matter of balance, restraint, experience – and the result is one of the best tacos. It’s the same with the Reuben – the sauerkraut just right – and with a vegetable wrap sharpened with blue cheese. And that’s before you dive into her superlative baking. Diva is just lovely, and it’s a new iconic destination for West Cork.
