This is a lovely restaurant in the middle of Killarney - even though it's a seafood restaurant, they do have lamb and steak and chicken on the menu. Many of the group I was with had the rack of lamb and they all raved about both the quality and the quantity of the lamb. I had scallops which were... read more

We had a delicious meal at Gaby's which was recommended by our driver on the way into Kiillarney from the Shannon airport. I had black sole and my husband had rack of lamb. Both were very fresh. The only thing that was disappointing was that for a seafood restaurant they were out of most of their shellfish. There were limited... More

The reception was really friendly and offered a drink while waiting for a table. The wait was reasonable and amenized by the fantastic bar-keeper. Food was really good. The only little complaint (I must admit the Restaurant was crowded) was the servicing staff. They did no pay attention to the drink orders, actually we had not even been asked. If... More

Having eaten at Gaby's on more than one occasion with my friend who was visiting from overseas, we were very disappointed with the lack of choice on the Menu. We appreciate Gaby's do not provide an extensive menu, as what they do serve is normally of an excellent standard. However, to be missing Lobster from the Main Course Menu (for... More

We were treated well, with a wonderful selection of menu items. I had the scallops, which were awesome. Our friends had the salmon, which prove to be delicious also. Service was excellent. Close walking to our Hotel, the Killarney Plaza!!

Almost left before we started because the restaurant had a foul musty smell. However we stuck it out, and, although the service was slightly sporadic, it was basically friendly and helpful. And the food, with the John Dory special, was really good, though not cheap

Gaby's was recommended by our boat driver at Ross Castle. It sounded wonderful so we gave it a try. We were just the second table of people in the restaurant. The table next to us got their orders promptly, but we waited over fifteen minutes for our wine right at the beginning. My husband had to go and find the... More
