BEST MEAL IN IRELAND!!

The waitress deserves a big payrise. She ran about all night efficiently dealing with everyone and staying smiling and cheerful. Another restaurant should make her an offer, she'd be a great asset to any team. The chef/owner on the otherhand turned up late so everyone had to wait for main courses. We both had the beef ravioli in butter and... More

Quiet on arrival, but got busier as the night progressed. This was not a cheap meal, but was certainly one of the best of our 15 day trip around southern Ireland. My black sole (E29.50)was absolutely superb. The chef's attention to detail was exemplary. Wine, as ever on this trip, was pricey.

Delicious food, wonderful menu, great service. Daniele and his team were the perfect hosts and we relish the chance to come back again. A must for anyone visiting Kerry........

Food was high quality but portions were tiny. Appeared to be under staffed. The waitress was clearly very rushed.

I had the great pleasure of visiting Giovannelli's for the 2nd time in a few months this weekend. Words fail to describe the bliss experienced on both my palate and wider senses courtesy of Daniel and his small team. The restaurant is utterly unassuming, the food is extraordinary (which really takes a lot for me to say), staff are very... More

The food was very good, as was the service and the ambiance. Would be lovely for a romantic meal. We weren't sure which wine to choose, so they offered to let us try a few before deciding, a very nice touch indeed. Good value for money

What a find of a restaurant in a very small town in Ireland. Lovely food, clearly the Chef/owner is inspired of what is in season and then he cooks with what is fresh or what he grows himself. My dinner was just lovely, service was just as it should be, smart and smiling and attentive. I overheard another diner ordering... More

We didn't actually go in as it was expensive but it also looked very nice, maybe another time we would go in and try it, the food around these parts is always good no matter where you go :)

You get the personal attention of the owner / chef and his food is really good. Suggest you book early as he has limited space and as the food is so good he is very popular
