We had an amazing meal, with starters of humus and duck spring rolls to start which were excellent. Filltet steak was cooked to perfection with beautiful roasted veg. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Cannot fault the atmosphere, food and overall experience.

The food is really good and well presented. If you want to eat before 8pm in the evening I would advise booking as we arrived at 7pm on a Monday evening and had to wait about 15 minutes. We nearly walked out as the staff were so busy serving customers it was as if we did not exist when we... More

Amazing atmosphere, service and food. This place is truly unique with the glass view dungeon floor to all the stone work. The service was great and when I asked for advice in choosing a meal, I got more than "this is always popular". I got, this dish goes well if you're wanting comfort of home etc. It was the perfect...

Best kept secret in Killarney. It's off the beaten path in town down a little alley. Had it not been for Jason at the Aron wool outlet we never would have known to go there. Hands down best food I have had in Ireland up to this point in our trip. I had the hake and it was fabulous. Husband... More

Just off the main road (High Street) where most of the restaurants get filled fast, there's the small Fleming's Lane with this restaurant. This is worth recommending, because the food is really excellent. Service is great, the wines were terrific and the interieur is very nice and original. Every party sits in a kind of closed area. Very cosy!

My brother and I had just finished a long day of biking and hiking when we came across this little establishment. We had the best service, and our meal was perfect. I had the fish and chips, and my brother had the Irish stew. The restaurant itself is cozy and inviting and the food was to die for. If I... More

Totally charming spot off the main (tourist) street. Delicious food, lovingly presented. Went back several times. The girls working the bar and tables greeted me warmly, remembered where I liked to sit and what cocktail I enjoyed. The female owner or manager was very gracious. Large parties of locals going on in back room at least two of the times... More

We were there in Friday night for my birthday! From starters to main course were excellent! I had the bruschetta with mozzarella to start and fillet steak, both were Devine but I had the best chocolate brownie I've ever had in my life. Our group tried an array of different things which they all agreed were excellent. Great service, great... More

The only reason I'm giving this a 4 star is because there was a large group of us & we were told at 630pm when we arrived that they had a booking at 8pm & we had to be gone so we could only have main courses which was very disappointing, I don't think a restaurant should take a booking... More

Came for dinner on a Saturday evening, wonderful atmosphere, staff were extremely friendly and the food was absolutely delicious, the nicest meal we have had out in a long time. The hazelnut cheesecake for dessert was absolutely delicious! Couldn't recommend higher.
