Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

Can't fault this place at all, great value, real fresh food and lovely staff! The restaurant itself is lovely for a fish and chip shop but to a much higher standard than what you would expect! A wide selection of fish and seasonal options too. Definitely recommend the crab claws!

“Simply Amazing Fresh Food”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Myself and my other half love fish and this is the place we visit the most often to eat in Killarney. The fish is so beautiful, the accompaniments are also great. The fish goujons for kids are outstanding. The atmosphere and staff are very welcome. It's a must visit if you're in Killarney and like fish, you will leave excited about the next time you will be visiting.

Thank you GMcGuire
for such a great review and taking the time to post all your positive comments and for visiting us so often.
We use all ultra fresh local fish for every thing on the menu and the goujons are great for
children who want to get a taste for real fish and maybe the next time they
could try some brill, john dory or plaice when they are available.
We look forward to seeing you again.

“Always tasty and fresh”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Have had a good few take aways from here as it is impossible to get a seat as it is always so busy. Chips not a bit greasy and fish so fresh and tasty. Mushy peas are divine. Defo recommend this place and will be returning.

“Quinian’s For Seafood”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

As we toured the west coast of Ireland we stopped in here one night. Located right in the touristy downtown area, it’s a small restaurant with about 12 or so tables. I believe most items on the menu were seafood, mainly fish. We each got the fried fish and chips, Cod and Hake. Both were very good and all the food we saw had a very nice presentation. I liked the fact that you could also get the healthier grill/baked fish instead of the fried. The portions were good and the price fair. The place looked very clean and service was friendly. We would definitely visit again if we’re in the area.
