“Okay for a family”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Not terrible, but pretty basic fare. I had trout with prawns and my wife had their grilled salmon, both of which seemed to come with the same butter/cream sauce. Not much imagination.

“Steak out”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

We ordered four steaks,my friend Gerry's had grizzel down the middle , my steak was ok until I got to the last quarter when it became uneadable, before that we ordered a bottle of wine which took 15 minutes to arrive to our table even though we could see on the counter behind us. Steaks were warm not hot , do not often write about food but I feel people should be warned.

“Best meal in a long time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Have just had a fabulous meal I Kettler's. Having finished a tiring day of rain and thunder on the golf course we were looking forward to our dinner. We tried out Kettler's and were not dissapointed. I mentioned that I was coeliac and was instantly reassured that this was not a problem. I had the most amazing black sole with a beurre blanc. Still licking my lips. My husband had the cod special which was just as delicious. My father in law had the most moist and tasty chicken on spinach and is still talking about the LARGE bowl of strawberries and cream that he had for dessert. A couple of very nice espressos finished off a very nice meal. The service was professional and attentive at all times. Would highly recommend Kettler's and will definitively be back.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Service was extremely slow, food didn't come for nearly and hour even though we had a 4 day old baby with us and asked it to be a bit hurried, when the food finally came the chowder was horrendous with uncooked fish in it, the margarita pizza which cost €14 tasted like an under-cooked frozen pizza and was tiny..and the lamb was mediocre. The waitress was apologetic, but I would never eat here again.
