This is a jewel for Killarney fantastic food ,great price,and usually great service.the wine list is very nice not fancy but good value for 20€.the service the first night was unreal,silver service standard.Happy to tip .the second night the food wine etc was excellent,unlucky for us the waitress had changed,she was brutal,she forgot a complete main course,not a penny off the bill was 45minates waiting for service to start with,seemed obsessed with couple beside us ,they were american so she smelled a big tip.Dad tipped the waitress €20 the first night we felt ripped off even paying the second night.

Reviewed August 22, 2013

Wow I am surprised reading such bad comments about the service as this is one of the best service I've had in Ireland! I wish I had the name of the waitress who served us because she was gold.
We were a group of 10 and she went above and beyond to make sure our group was well received. We did not have a reservation and there was no place for a group right away but she asked a couple if they would be willing to change place to allow our group to sit together...
She also took care to do 10 individual receipt as we were all paying seperately, which is really rare in Europe!! She even split the charge of the cheese cake that we shared!
Food was really good but the menu was not really original and didn't have much choice...
They have a seafood chowder that is AMAZING, one of the best I've tried!
I would definitely go back! :)

“Great food shocking service”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

All popped in for lunch, food was great, some of the staff were so rude it became comical, we were convinced that there were hidden cameras for a tv show.

Owners would do well to mystery shop their staff, it has to be seen to be believed.

“Rudest staff I've ever seen”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Have visited this restaurant for a good few years and found the service much better in 2011-2012 when we'd be down on holidays. Staff were a lot nicer years ago, change in staff hasn't done the place any good. Ordered the bacon and cabbage, don't know which was saltier! Nice enough selection on the menu but has gotten pricey for the Quality of the food. On this occasion I was less than impressed, have never seen such rude staff. Got smart comments from the waitress when ordering of the menu and inquiring about a particular dish. Everything was basically thrown onto the table with an attitude, would it have been to much trouble asking her to smile? Observed some elderly lady come into the restaurant to order a meal and was asked loudly whether she had money or not, whether she had little or no money the waitress shouldn't have made a big deal out of it in front of customers, observed some of the staff being very unprofessional towards the lady and behind her back. If some of them are unhappy in their job then give it up, why should the customers have to suffer. Will not be returning to the restaurant and will not recommend it on what I've seen on this occasion.
