Our ethos is to serve an eclectic mix of good food, in modern surroundings combined with a friendly atmosphere. We offer tapas, seafood, steaks & a wide variety of contemporary dishes. The Franciscan Friary is just up the street from our restaurant and it has been a landmark in the town of Killarney since its construction in the early 1860’s. However the Franciscans that built the Friary were Belgian Friars. The Belgian Franciscan Provincial that agreed to send some friars to Ireland was Fr. Archangelus Vendricks! Thus we decided to name our restaurant after this visionary Friar and we actually opened our restaurant on the 7th of December 2018 – The 150th Anniversary of the Opening of the Friary

We were in Killarney for my friend’s hen party this weekend and we had dinner in Vendricks Restaurant on Saturday night. The food was great, the restaurant is beautifully decorated and the staff were excellent. We had a big group and the staff were extremely...accommodating. I couldn’t recommend this restaurant more for a large group.More

My husband and I had an excellent meal. We had a selection of tapas, 5 in all and all were very well presented and very tasty. We also had a fad desert of apple and rúbarb crumble. Would highly recommend.

On our fourth evening of Ireland travel the four of us decided to take a break from Pub Fare and seek out a dining experience accompanied by a nice bottle of wine. Killarney offered a few options and we selected Vendricks based on its inviting...entry and pleasant ambiance upon entering. Although not extensive, the wine list is varied and offered a great selection. The menu also offered interesting options which allowed us an opportunity to explore both “small plates” and full portions of various meat and fish alternatives. Two of our party decided on baked cod which was served in a very delicate cream base herb sauce. With a side of mashed potatoes the offering was outstanding. Our other two diners opted for a small plate. One was a delicately prepared plate of grilled scallops accompanied by a small salad and puréed fennel. The second small plate of bacon wrapped prawns were wonderfully and tasty prepared. We felt welcomed unhurried, and enjoyed the evening immensely. A highly recommended dining experience.More

Went to this restaurant recently the service was good with attentive waiters but the food we ate was terrible I had fish starter and main and my partner had meatballs and steak all dishes were rubbery and bland. I couldn’t finish my meal. The decor...was lovely however the food was not worth the moneyMore
