Ate here last night and really enjoyed it. An elegantly decorated restaurant, very warm and inviting. Was busy enough and there was a happy armosphere. Our waitress was lovely, very friendly and attentive. Had lovely bread with pesto to begin with. For starters I had the warm beef salad which was really nice. Then for mains I had the paella...

Really nice meal and good service. Was not impressed with the three smokers in the doorway and the stink of smoking on the way in! The prawn and avocado starter was amazing but had to look for the avocado. Dover sole was delicious too. Bit too quick to remove plates before we were finished.

My wife and I and our children have being coming to Killarney for many years and have had many good meals - some not so good- during the 30 odd years we've visited here.

Came here with the missus on a whim when having a mid-week break in Killarney, it is just brilliant. The food, wine and atmosphere are perfect and they are only topped by the amazing staff. Would highly recommend

My last visit here was back in April 2013 and I knew then that I'd be coming back. I absolutely love this restaurant..the way it's set out is perfect. There's no one sitting on top of you like most places I visit so you have a nice bit of privacy. The food is not cheap but is worth every penny... More
