“Great food, seating needs improvement”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Had a lovely dinner here; starters and main were very tasty. Dessert is unusual in that you're given a choice of bottle jars with various mousse/panacottas -not the usual crumble & cheesecake. Service was efficient though we got the feeling it was for the purpose of moving us out more than anything. Only real downside for me was that we were seated in a 'diner style' seat which was not long enough for the table for 2 normal sized people so the edge of the seat was sticking into my back & I found it very uncomfortable. Unfortunately the restaurant doesn't take bookings so you might be stuck with the seating.

“Quirky Quality”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Excellent burgers served on wooden board, very tasty meals and very good service, could improve the desert selection but overall very modern and quirky and a break away from the touristy 'oirish' cuisine available in most places in Killarney

“Second Visit and still lovely food !!!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

There was a group of us this time, 6 drunken blokes with a mighty hunger and this restaurant did not fail to deliver.
Thank you to the lovely waitress who put up with us, the banter was excellent and so was the food. My only criticism, the crab claws should be served in a bucket and not a on a plate :-) yes I liked them that much!!!!
I don't go back to a restaurant twice unless I think it is worth it as there are dozens of places to eat in Killarney, however you can never have too much of a good thing!!#

Oh yea, Cheers for paying for us all Dave!!! What a result that was :-)

“A gem of a find!!!!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Myself and my partner were on a last minutr break in Killarney and so hadn't really researched anywhere to go for dinner. We were dropped by taxi on the main rd and decided to walk along and see what took our fancy.

We were very impressed by the menu on display it had steaks pork chicken lamb etc. so we decided to try it.

Inside was busy and there was a lovely atmosphere. We were greeted straight away and led to our table.

In addition to the menu there was also a special board which feature more delicious options should as duck.

We found the service extremely prompt and the food was EXCELLENT.

We were delighted with our gem of a find!!!
