The old type charm of the place stands out.

Excellent food,friendly staff BUT slow service.Great if you are not in a hurry but if you are I suggest you phone in your order or use some method to ensure you are not waiting for half an hour,not much use if you are on a standard lunch time and away from your place of work!

Don't believe the negative reviews - this is a little treasure! We turned up unbooked on a busy Thursday night & this place has an excellent system - they take your number & call when the table's ready. We chose to sit at the bar & wait. You need to be aware it's recently become a BYOB restaurant, but they... More

Dropped by here on a busy week night, they had no space available but took my number to ring us back when a table became available. 20 mins later we had a table upstairs. Love the decor and cozy feeling in the place. We ordered two main courses, and they were promptly served. My fillet steak was very nice and... More

Although we did not dine here, I wanted to go back. This is a bring your own place but they just happened to have a glass of wine for weary shoppers. Quint and unique decor.

Another recommendation that proved to be brilliant. No need to book, loads of room. Good staff, great menu and you can bring your own beer/wine with corkage charged per bottle. However, house drinks are not expensive, so personally I wouldn't bother. My wife had the steak and I had the blackened salmon which was amazing. Highly recommended.

I have eaten here once before, some time last year and enjoyed my meal. We were having a family dinner so I recommended it for the occasion. 4 of us ordered the rib eye steak off the bone. 3 were pretty much consisting of only fat, no meat. Passive as we are we should of said it there and then... More

Had lunch here with my wife while visiting Killarney on a busy Sunday. We were seated straight away, there was a nice selection of options on the menu and service was prompt. The food we were served can only be described as top class, and that's coming from a very fussy eater😀. All this and priced very well. Will certainly... More

My friend lives in Killarney and she recommended we meet for lunch here. From the moment I walked in, I felt pampered and cared for. They offered coffee, which tasted wonderful and came with tiny biscuits. I ordered the fishcakes which actually had quite a lot of tasty fish in them. The usual mashed potato and crumbled topping tasted utterly... More

We got excited when we found a steak place in Ireland as the places we have looked at are mostly Irish food. The steak was so tough I couldn't finish it. My dad got the same cut and he said his was fine. My mom and sister got the sea bass and said the flavor was great but every other... More
