“food OK, but not more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

it's sad, that such a nice hotel at such a marvelous place does not care for a good chef de cuisine. food was OK, nothing to complain about, but also nothing to write home about. service also was mediocre. one thing took my attention: when somebody ordered a bottle of wine (starting at about 25€) the wine was served in a nice glass, as it should be. we (and others) ordered a wine by the glass (at around 6€). this wine was served in a absolut cheap (1€) glass.
that's to *cheap* for such a hotel. by the way, the wine by the glass was a good one.
i would not eat there anymore. there are for sure better restaurants in town.

“Service lacks hospitality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely shocking service from the kitchen. Idea was too eat at 6 be back in the room for 7,got the starter at 6.25 which I might add was chowder and fantastic,got main course at 8.30. Ruined our hotel experience. One apology offered by a waiter who was not even the waiter who served us.

“The best meal in years; the restaurant has changed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Due to a fiasco with Molly Darcy's; necessity took us to the Lake Hotel restaurant - 'at the last minute'. Four years ago we'd had a poor meal and hadn't been back since. Living locally, we regularly drink in the hotel bar as the outlook is wonderful. Anyway, last night we had the best meal in Killarney for years. The service was also the best I've enjoyed in many years. The staff are second to none.
