Stonechat is worth the visit

Wonderful evening. Food was fresh, staff were amazing. Our server gave us great recommendations for traveling the Ring of Kerry. I had the sole which was cooked to perfection and non of us had any complaints. The Guinness was flowing.

Had dinner here with some friends the other night. A little off the main drag in Killarney, but a super nice eclectic restaurant. The staff was super friendly and service a quick. We ordered the Hummus and calamari appetizers which were delicious. Main courses were delicious also. Would recommend....nice to get off the crowded main street...

I arrived with my parents and my 2.5 year old daughter and was a bit worried that she wouldn't behave. I needn't have worried as the staff took our order quickly ( I asked that they would so we would not be too long waiting)and couldn't have been more welcoming to my little girl. She behaved! The food was fabulous.... More

We stayed in Killarney for only a couple of nights. We ate at the Stonechat Café both nights. The staff worked hard to make sure everything was perfect, they were super friendly and the food was awesome. The Calamari was a great starter as were the soups. I had the Lamb the first night and prime rib the second. My... More

I ate here recently with some friends, the food was very good and staff are all very friendly. I had calamari to start, and it's probably the best I've had. If done badly, it can be disappointing, but this was just gorgeous. It was in a lovely butter batter, really crispy and tasty and the calamari was cooked perfectly. I... More

I was really looking forward to dining in Stonechat as I used to go there regularly for lunch when it first opened. However, our experience was very disappointing. The staff were very inexperienced! The waitress had very little English, which resulted in our meals being incorrect. Avoid the burger at any cost, it was pathetic. The waiter even looked embarrassed... More

Our host was charming very helpful. Our party of 8 had plenty of variety to choose from and everyone's meal was very good. The decor was charming, a bit eclectic.
