Had dinner as a family group of six adults and three toddlers. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Quality of our food, while good, was average. For us the smoked salmon starter was very bland and the texture of beef burger was soft and mushy. Others however in the group loved the chicken skewers, goats cheese and chowder. The... More

A lovely relaxing resaturant just outside the beautiful Kenmare. The price was a bit on the expensive side but well worth it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The view was awesome on a fine September evening.

A rel find just outside Kenmare. Lovely food served with a smile, and great service. We sat outside and enjoyed the evening sun. The children had a lovely walk and also used the playground. Will return when next in Kenmare for sure.

Beautiful restaurant in a wonderful sunshine with outdoor seating. Only drawback was that they only served full meals, no scones etc so wound up getting chips which I did not really want (but were yummy). Would definitely go back again for a full meal when we are hungry.

Wow! This place has amazing views especially in the summer sunshine. The food is great and you can sit outside to eat it. It is a little expensive for dessert (7.50) but felt we deserved it on vacation. They also do camping here and pony treking as well as boat trips.
