“Good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Thoroughly recommend this restaurant, up a side street from Killarney's main street. Lovely ambiance to the restaurant, and very helpful and polite staff. Food was great, I had enchilada with mexican hot spices. It was good and spicy- just the way I like it. My wife had the chilli con carne, it was lovely too. All in all a very pleasant experience. Recommended.

“Great but there is better!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Had to try this place. Very tasty. Not the best Mexican I've ever had but well worth a try. The waitress was fantastic, very chatty acomadating and knowledgeable. The craft beer was delish. I will have to try hotter next time tho!

“Brilliant ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Found this wonder by chance. Atmosphere excellent once it filled up (we were very early). Staff very helpful, welcoming and efficient. Food is tops. Fillet steak was out of this world. Chili con crane was spot on. I chose medium hot and it suited me. Nice kick. They do a lot hotter but they were more than happy to guide you depending on your taste. It's off the street and somewhat shabby location ( it was pelting rain when we found it) but looks authentic, and inside is spotless and I would say cosy. Even a few benches outside to smoke or possibly eat if the weather was good . Found prices to be reasonable. Portions did not look huge that was something of an illusion as we came away well satisfied. Definitely have to revisit when I am next in killarney.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Found this by accident while loking for a short cut and even though we liked the look of the menu we were reluctant to go in as it did not seem inviting
We got lucky though and decided to give it a try
It is a wonder
Fantastic food--only tried the tapas this time but would go back to Kllarney especially to eat here again.
