We were told this was a good seafood restaurant. Aside of outdated decor, main grid was very overpriced food. 7 small crab claws in garlic cream sauce at 15 euro. My daughter had a very small (adult portion?) chicken breast with fries and stalk of broccoli, spoon of carrot at 22euro, we had small portion of fish (John dory) with same vegetables and potatoes at 28euro per head. Overall service was fine but this felt like a restaurant that was living off long past rewards, with a higher opinion of itself than its prices justify

Stopped in here last minute for dinner and the fish and seafood are truly exceptional. The waitstaff was very attentive and while the prices are a bit more than some of the others in town the quality of food more than makes up for it. Highly recommend it.

Recommended as the best restaurant in Killarney by the lady in the bar across the road, it probably is. Friendly and welcoming staff, perfect service, delicious sea food and reasonable wine list, would go there again.

Had eaten here about 20 years ago - the food was only average, the decor and table ware were poor for the prices being asked. The side salad was increadible bad.
I had expected more from the reviews I had read before I went - would not return again

Once again we had a most wonderful evening in Gaby's. Fabulously fresh Irish fish, carefully cooked and served in a wonderful atmosphere. The hosts are first class restauranteurs. No visit to Killarney would be complete without a visit to Gaby's
