I recently came to this restaurant with a friend and it was quite late but nevertheless we were told 'no problem - come in and relax'. And that's exactly what we did. I had duck with beautiful butternut and my friend has the seafood platter which was exquisite. It took us longer to eat our food as we tried to... More

So - I am a mother of two grown boys that went to restaurants all their lives - so yes I do feel guilty cutting Lord Kenmare's from a 5 to a 4 based on their guests vs. their food or service - but alas I have. Ok - so this restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. It... More

We were a group of 20 having set menu €35 day after wedding. It was fantastic. Everyone thought it was so delicious and excellent value for money. Many choices within the set menu with no supplement for steak. Highly recommended this for excellent quality food & service

The only good thing about this place is the service. We went to Trip Advisor searching for a seafood restaurant and this came up as #11. The menu for seafood was minimal offering sole and hake as fish choices and paella. I ordered the sole, received a generous portion but it was dry as sand despite being cooked in a... More

My opinion may have been influenced by the crowd that night. We sat next to a Girls Night Out party of 20 and close to a large party of 30-40 celebrating something. I ordered the Muscovy duck which was fine. My companions ordered rack of lamb and a seafood assortment. The lamb was ordered medium rare and came out bloody.... More
