A great Chef - A great Restaurant

This is a great restaurant. We arrived early to make a reservation and had a great discussion with the chef (from Belgium ancestry) Gert Maes. While the prices are a bit high, the food and service are both fantastic. The walls are decorated with the many awards that the chef has received in... read more

We had a great night out at gabys. The food was excellent quality and the servings were very good size. The service was good. The wine list was reasonably priced. Would highly recommend.

The food was incredible, I had the Black Sole Meniere and it was perfectly prepared, so were all the other dishes we ordered. Everyone was very nice but it was challenging for our patience, they took very long to take our order, the starters came very quickly but then the main course and the bill, took much longer than expected....

Black (Dover) sole was fabulous so were starters and dessert . Service was attentive . If you like to eat good fish this is definitely a place to visit when in Killarney.

Fantastic restaurant that we visited around the 4th July. Service was second to none. Food was beautiful. Great choice of wines. Lovely selection of deserts although I would recommend the cheeseboard as they feature regional choice. They also serve an excellent steak and I found the cost reasonable considering the standard.

If you want seafood, go here! Make a reservation, as the place is always packed. Great variety in the menu offerings, but all appears to be fresh, local seafood. Ok wine list with some nice choices. Only issue was getting our check in a timely manner after dinner, but flagged down someone and it was taken care of immediately.

A wonderful restaurant - it is very beautiful. I had the seafood platter (hot) and it was amazing. My husband had the lamb and raved about it. The side of potatoes, veges, etc was also perfect. We also had the Creme Brulee which was delicious as were our drinks. Bartender was fun, really took care of us and when he... More

Have visited this establishment about 15 times since 2002. Same professional and friendly staff. Always a real pleasure and truly friendly (Tourism Ireland would be proud!). Welcoming fire in the evening and great bar for pre dinner drinks with exceptional selection of whiskeys and other drinks. Barman (Leo) is part of what makes this a welcoming restaurant.

After reading a few reviews we decided to give Gaby's a try and we were not disappointed. We had the seafood cocktail and salmon pate for starters. Both were excellent. The cocktail included prawns, salmon, crab and mussels. We then had monkfish in tempura batter and the salmon platter. Again both dishes were of the very best quality. As for... More

This restaurant was recommended by some people we met on the street in Killarney who had just eaten there, as well as by our hotel staff. Our meals were superb! Be sure to ask your waitperson which fish s/he recommends. We asked Murphy and he suggested the john Dory. We wisely took his recommendation, and were not disappointed. The food... More
