Description: The stylish Cellar One Restaurant is at the heart of The Ross with truly individual design features. Leading from the Pink Lounge down the elegant stairs into Cellar One Restaurant is impressive, and from here on your evening will continue in this same vein. Chef Ian McMonagle has beautifully combined local produce with international influences which will fall nothing short of offering gastric delight. As well as great creative flair there is a clear understanding of food & flavours evident all the way through this menu. From the Cromane Mussels steamed in coconut milk with lime and ginger to the Roast Peppered Breast of Skeghanore Duck served with braised red cabbage, baked apple, honey & orange sauce the creative flair and clear understanding of food is evident all the way through this menu.

“Good food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

I took my boyfriend to Cellar One for his birthday. I was incredibly impressed with the use of space in this basement restaurant. The place was full of happy diners, and the relaxed lighting and pianist in the corner added to the ambiance without being overbearing.
I ordered Clonakilty black pudding with a blue cheese sorbet for starter, while my boyfriend ordered scallops. Both dishes were exceptional. Mains were also practically faultless. I ordered parmesan crusted plaice with crab claws and wilted spinach, which was good, but there definitely wasn't enough spinach. My boyfriend had the vension, which gave me serious food envy. It was a huge hunk of meat, cooked exactly as he asked. Potoes and vegetables also arrived with the mains.
Dessert was outstanding. On recommendation from the hotel's charming receptionist we ordered the chocloate fondue to share. Amazing!
The staff were attentive, cordial and chatty, as well as highly professional. Despite the place being full, we never felt rushed, and they knew to bring our after dinner drinks after dessert, which a lot of places don't think of!
I cannot recommend it highly enough, certainly one of the best restaurants in Killarney.

Had dinner in Cellar one on Saturday night. There were 16 of us on a hen. It was really really nice. There was something on the menu to suit everyone. All the girls was raving about the food afterwards.
