Very nice and friendly owner/server. Nice choice on menu. Killarney prices. Lovely bottle of merlot to wash it down. I would go back. My husband enjoyed his birthday dinner.

Hi BettyBoopClaire,
Thank you for posting this great review, we are really grateful. I'm delighted your husband enjoyed his birthday dinner. I'm afraid the photo you posted is not from our restaurant but that's easy happen when you go to different places.
Thanks again and hope to see you soon.
Best wishes Mary.

Starting with meeting the lovely hostess whose husband is the chef, everything was uphill from there! We had read reviews in TripAdvisor and stopped by to see it. We did have reservations, but earlier times seem not to be as busy. The food was just wonderful and Mareena gave us good advise on the wine. The monk fish was divine and the warm cashel blue cheese salad was worth the trip to Ireland! Don't miss this lovely, cozy local place.

Hi Holly H
We are delighted you joined us for dinner and thank you for posting this great review.
I would always advise people to make a reservation as we have only 8 tables and can fill up quickly.
I'm glad you enjoyed everything.
Thanks again,
Mary.

My wife & I had our last meal in Killarney here. This is a great restaurant with great food and charming service. Mary was very nice and pleasant. We also met some lovely Brits here as well that recommended a good bottle of wine. We hope to visit again soon and recommend anyone visiting Killarney to try them out. You won't be disappointed.

Beautiful presentation in this small, quiet restaurant. Excellent meals cooked by the owner, with his wife serving and making gracious recommendations. Reservations are a must!
