Ate here after a roadtrip around the west of Ireland. Recommended by a friend to visit so tried ringing to book a reservation but don't take bookings, wasn't a downfall at all. Was a Thursday night in Killarney so was taking the risk to get a table. Arrived at 8.15pm and we got a nice cosy table for 2, atmosphere... More

The food was great as well as the presentation. I would highly recommend the grilled goat cheese appetizer.

The food is excellent and creative overall. Interior is interesting, decorated in antiques in many areas. Cozy and intimate. We were seated in upstairs dining room that had a settee on one side of the table and the springs or cushioning was worn out, making you drop partly to the floor. Very uncomfortable, took away from what was a great... More

I chose to go here as the menu looked good and I like steak. I made no booking and the girl on the door took my name and number and said she would call within 20 minutes. After 35 minutes I walked back up as I was worried she had forgotten about us and she took me to the bar... More

Casual atmosphere with great food at competitive price. I have been several times sampling breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast menu had a tasteful selection and I enjoyed it. For dinner the steak was amazing!! Cooked rare and great quality! The place is cosy, maybe a little but squashed considering the table next to us had an unhappy baby and cried... More

We went here on recommendation of the hostess at the place we were staying just out of Killarney. Our waitress was really friendly on a busy night but we waited a long time for service and in between courses. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice but it could be great.

Now.. first off I have been here many times, but recently the past couple of visits seem to have not been as good as before. The staff have become quite forgetful of orders and don't seem to write the orders down anymore.. and each time a different waitress seems to come to the table asking what we would like to... More

A warm welcome and friendly waitress was all that was good at this busy main street Killarney Restaurant. We ordered a white Spanish Sauvignon Blanc. Not only did a Bordeaux arrive but it was too warm. The waitress said she'd get an ice bucket. This didn't arrive for ages which meant the wine got warmer. She did swap it for... More

We wandered into this place when nearby restaurants had a long wait, and were seated nearly immediately. A very nice wine list and eclectic atmosphere made this meal more romantic than we would have expected. I had the lamb, which was well cooked and very filling. Try getting a seat on the outdoor portion of the second floor!
