We ordered spicy calamaris, chicken and Eaton mess. All very tasty and well served. The restaurant was very busy on Saturday evening which is a good sign. Decor is pleasant and we liked the piano play in the background. The prices are like in Dublin though.

Visited on 19th August for the last meal of our holiday. How we wished we had gone earlier in the holiday! Service couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. The food was superb and all the time accompanied by lovely relaxing piano music played live. Will be back next time we're in Killorglin. Thank you.

We were 5. 3 of the group German and 2 Irish. The lamb was commented on by our foreign friends as being fantastic, we had fish... it was fresh, beautifully served and so tasty. Five stars. The only negative was that we were a bit cramped to the next table... this didn't bother us too much, but our neighbour table... More

Enjoyed a meal on the Sunday night after the Puck Fair. The meal was good and the guys serving were humorous and professional. The food was good but the portion of mussels was small and a bit expensive. The décor etc was fun and stylish. All in all a good place to eat.

Hi Louise, Thank you for taking time to write a review about your visit to Nicks. You had lunch with us during Puck Fair and I know this because there are only 3 days in the whole year that Nicks is open for lunch and that is during Puck when thousands of people descend on the town. I really do... More

We visited on a bank holiday weekend, and got amazing service and stunning food. The chowder was out of this world, and the seafood platter was generous and well put together. We reluctantly rolled out without eating dessert as we just couldn't finish it. We'll be back. Thankyou.

Well what can we say.... Staff very friendly and attentive including the owner. Decor fun stylish and warm. Food wonderful. They have a pianist play music in the back ground which also helped with the atmosphere. We were in Kiloglin for two nights and after the first evening we booked again for the 2nd night. It was not just the... More

This was my absolute favourite restaurant last year but I feel that in the past year the high standard has slipped which is very disappointing. I truly hope that the standard picks up once again as it really was such a lovely restaurant. The food is not as nice and some of the best meals are either not the same... More

The piano greets you on arrival and John is waiting to welcome you. Lovely warm atmosphere with a lively bar. I was with two friends, three "ladies" of a certain age! The menu is a little old fashioned but very tasty and filling. The fish is fresh and the burger was good. Perhaps a little tweak and less on the... More

Second visit in two months, this busy restaurant serves wonderful food. The prawns are divine, and the rack of lamb superb, cooked to perfection, neither course travelled far before arriving on the plate. The best of local produce in a friendly Irish atmosphere, the piano player was great, lovely selection of traditional Irish and classic popular songs. Keep it up... More
