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.

We had a very nice dinner at Stonechat. There was a large group of us. I recommend reservations especially during the busy months. The food and service were equally as good. The lamb shank was a big hit ! It's a very cosy restaurant. Highly recommend.

Our B&B hostess highly recommended this resturuant, so we were excited to check it out. I loved the quirky design, with little private areas created from old windows, under booth lit floors. The food was good and portions seemed large, or maybe we just ordered way too much. The service was great. Just a nice place to have a couples... More

I'm a local in Killarney and stonechat is my favourite restaurant with amazing food and staff. The goats cheese is to die for and the steak or tagatelli for main course just WOW and don't forget to finish off with the chocolate cake served with ice cream and cream! Please don't miss out when visiting Killarney!

Lovely little restaurant, hidden in a small side street. We ate there 3 times with different people during our stay in Killarney - each time was great. Friendly staff with a great sense of humour.

In kilarney for a night away and found a great place for tasty food and good irish hospitality. The lady manager (Wednesday night) had a delightful way about her and all the staff followed her lead. The duck spring rolls were ok but the burgers were very tasty and juicy with a nice Argentina wine.

10/10 for everything at this restaurant. From the greeting we got when we landed, to the decor, to the waiters, to the menu, to the food, to the wine, and the goodbye. An absolutely fantastic spot that I had just forgotten about. Really cosy spot and I'm really looking forward to going back.

Thoroughly enjoyed eating here last weekend. This is obviously a favourite of locals (earwigging on some great engagement between diners). Food was excellent, cooked and presented in an effortless and friendly manner. Great staff engagement. This would be my new favourite local if I lived close enough - having said that, I will be back. Séamus
