Thank you cdbil81 for your review.
We are also rather annoyed with your review, I have checked our cctv and your visit was after 8 that evening and we were closing in line with the hours for that day. We appreciate that you looking forward to our very popular fish and chips and i can only say in future that you should call beforehand on 064 6620666 and we will have your order ready for you.
I would appreciate if you could revise or remove you review and have a chat with a member of staff the next time you in about our take out service.

Best regards and hope to see you soon

“Hake fish & chips gets 10 stars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

Can I give this place 10 stars?? OMG the BEST fish and chips we have ever had. I don't think I will be able to eat others after this. It ruined me. We had it for a snack on day 1 and went back for the full dinner day 2. Fish is caught that morning (I heard from a local). So light and flaky. Not greasey, doesn't weigh you down. Chips are yummy.
Crab claws are soooo garlicy and delicious.

Would love to go back today but I live in the states. YUUUM

Thank you Christina v for your great review of our hake and chips.
Yes I agree when you have real ultra fresh fish it is not easy to go back to average fish.! Our chips are also prepared daily and the crabs claws are from the sustainable stocks of County Kerry.

“It's only fish and chips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor I really wanted to visit this place. I must say the food was delicious but considering we only got a take away I found it very expensive for what is basically just fish and chips.

Thanks you blaa_in_exile for the review.
Our aim in establishing the seafood bar was to provide Killarney (and now tralee) with a eating venue where customers could enjoy the very best and the freshest Kerry seafood in a casual sit down environment at great value prices.
We continually improve on this aim and hope to see you again soon.

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.

Best regards
