We arrived, without a reservation after we had walked from Killarney to Kenmare on the Kerry Way walking route. We were made most welcome. The house cooked brown bread and olive garlic tapenade really tasty. We had the fillet steak and cod main dishes, both were cooked to perfection. The accompanying vegetables of sugar snap peas, pureed carrot and crocket... More

Booked table of seven for our nieces 17th birthday. Everything was perfect, from the service at the bar to the excellent food and fast and brilliant service. The restaurant was full at the time but you would not have known it, very relaxed but very efficient. Everyone enjoyed every aspect of the food and a great time was had by... More

Delicious, creative, beautifully presented food in a relaxing, sophisticated environment. Loved it. You'd be silly to go elsewhere.

Dinner for two, post Christmas so wanted something light and simple. Skipped starters and chose fillet steaks. An inspired choice as they were done to perfection. Slightly stingy on the veg, but it felt just right on this occasion. Followed up with Passion Fruit soufflé and ice-cream which were also perfect. Good selection of wines on the menu so we... More

great drinks and food. Service was pretty speedy and the meals are moderately priced. Two cocktails, a couple of starts and a split meal for less than 50. Staff was warm and friendly and pleased to answer our questions about the menu.

Not as good as it was. We were in this restaurant 2 yrs ago and the food was truly amazing. On our visit to Kenmare we heard it wasn't as good but decided to try it ourselves. It's not. Staff are wonderful. Lovely ambience!

Wonderful restaurant that all the family enjoyed. Great food and great choice. Service was excellent. Catered for gluten-free options etc. You have to be prepared to pay more than average prices, but the food and experience is worth it.

We both decided on fish. Amuse Bouche was a lovely touch to get the meal started..lovely warm bread and crushed olives. Scallops were really sweet and nicely cooked. Black sole with brown butter was good, but the flood of melted butter? on the plate was rather tasteless and made everything float in liquid. The fish itself was lovely, desserts were... More
