Best dinner in Ireland - had large steamed mussels in a light cream broth (cannot recall spices but was super delicious - a tad spicy and full of flavor) that were perfectly cooked; my friend had the fish special (Hake I believe) and she said it was one of the best fish dishes she had ever eaten; 2 breads served...

I'd seen good reviews so I had high expectations. Those were definitely met. The service and the food are absolutely worth it.

Had a really nice dinner here a few nights ago. Some nice classic dishes such as Cod Provencal, well cooked. Had a nice surprising starter, a potato pancake that was very delicately made and presented. Never had this anywhere else. The prices are not cheap but the food is good quality.

A group of us went to Pakie's for dinner on a busy weekend in October & it was a great experience. There was a wonderful atmosphere & the food was as you would expect for such a restaurant in this location. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pakie's for fish but one of our party had lamb & was... More

We had a supetb meal here everything absolutely terrific and flavoursome. Having eaten in most Kenmare restaurants I would rate Packies at the top of the list. We found the potato souffle starters absolutely to die for and also highly recommend the fish. Atmosphere great albeit a little packed but a great experience. We will be back.

Food excellent,beautiiiful mini pancakes to start with,main course of Halibut cooked to... More
