Lovely meal, lovely evening

Sometimes a venue gets things just right, and this is one. The food and service, and the ambience as well were excellent. Scallops to start and steak to follow. Excellent meal!

It's always busy but don't let that put you off. This place provides great food and good entertainment, with live piano playing. We both had squid to start and these were very fresh and tasty. Plaice followed and it was excellent. There's nothing hugely fancy here. They just prepare very fresh ingredients and cook them perfectly. The choice of wines... More

We just wandered in whilst at the Puck Fair as they had seats and the pubs were full to bursting. They said the vegetarian option was tagliatelle which didn't fill me with much hope as normally it is really boring with stodgy pasta. This, however, was a delight. Light with a tasty pesto sauce - delicious. Our friends also loved... More

My nephew from San Francisco decided to have his stag in Killorglin with many of his friends & myself. We played golf on Saturday & we arrived at Nicks for dinner afterwards. The meal was a wonderful experience. The staff were amazing & the food was superb. I had never been there before & I was really impressed with the... More

Wonderful fresh seafood, great ambience. We enjoyed a starter, main and desert with a couple of drinks. Quite pricey but the food was really good. Staff were lovely and friendly. Would definitely recommend but it is on the pricey side.

Ate in nicks recently.... The food was absolutely fabulous, the quality was really exceptional, steak was cooked to perfection, portions were large. Especially for an early bird! Unfortunately the service was extremely poor despite there being plenty staff. Ordered fries but they didn't come out with our Main course, the waiting staff seemed to disappear and didn't check on us,... More

We ate at Nicks on 28th July and the food was of the best quality! Choosing a rack of lamb and a seafood platter between us, both mains were divine. The staff are highly professional and friendly making for a relaxed atmosphere. One of best dining experiences I have had this year!!

This place was very busy and we had to wait for a seat but we were offered drinks and menus at the bar while we waited. Good service and interesting piano music! Not cheap.

Located in the center of Killorglin, this restaurant is a great piano bar as well. The musicians were very talented, performing a variety of music. The food was delicious! Be sure to have the mussels as a starter! There is public parking a short walk from the restaurant as well.
