Visit this restaurant once a year in December when I am in Killarney. The standard continues at the same high level. A full bar licence adds to the evening giving you an alternative to wine or bottled beer. Cosy atmosphere here with a number of nooks and crannies. Service is excellent also. Prices... read more

My husband and I had a very delicious meal here 2 weeks ago on our anniversary. It was a horrible wet evening but we enjoyed our time in the restaurant. Food was very good, my husband had a wonderful steak and we shared a fab chocolate cake for dessert. We will definitely come again.

Regular visitor to this restaurant when in Killarney. Love their stir fries and fish specials. Great homely cooking and friendly staff. Only suggestion would be it would be nice if the menu changed occasionally.

Went here as part of a group for a bit of a get together on Saturday night. We were late arriving and the staff and owner were so accommodating. It was my 1st time here and had heard mixed reviews but to be fair I cannot complain. Love the decor, a glass floor looking in to a cool basement type... More

As many have said, we stumbled upon this while we were trawling the Main Street for a suitable place for our family dinner. Must say we didn't go straight in, but came back to it and chanced that even though we didn't notice any 'kids menu' (not usually an indication of healthy food options however) that we'd get something suitable...

Easy to miss as its down an ally off a major street. In July 2013, five of us stumbled on it in the late afternoon. The atmosphere was warm, but rustic to a degree with wooded accents. The owner welcomed us even though there were a few minutes to opening. The servers were so attentive, and the food was delicious.... More

A waitress even danced for us! If I had to say anything negative it would be that it was quite dark in there but other then that it... More
