Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This was the second time we were visiting the restaurant. We requested them a table near the window but the manager told us that we would not be able to sit on that table as it is for four and we were two. We understood...and took a table for two. However, during the whole experience I noticed that the best tables were given to the people who were friends or known to the manager. Even at one point she gave a table of four to one person. Observing all this it was a bit upsetting and could not avoid the feeling of being discriminated. The food is great though. The lamb shank was very good and my wife enjoyed the three course menu which was great as well. However, the whole experience from the start went to the downhill because of observing above stated facts.More

For the prices this place charge for their food, you’d at least be expecting half decent service. The ladies here look so miserable and only seemed to give proper attention to their regular customers/people they knew. €7 for a bowl of soup during lunch time...is practically dublin prices. Food was nice but completely overpriced. Decor is outdated and old, no atmosphere, just a bit awkward in my opinion. The place has definitely gone downhill since CovidMore

Had mains of fish , which was nice. The sides are a set piece and go with all meals - a mix of tired vegetables mash and chips. At €16.95 ,approx, I would say overpriced. My big mistake was dessert, which was a Roulade ,...possibly taken from frozen section of Llydl with a generous scoop of ice cream @ €6.95 , totally overpriced for a gloopy excuse for Roulade. Really horrible. Service was functional, but unpleasant . Overall : its food , nothing special . It is overpriced The Restaurant is totally outdated and institutionalised .More

We have visited this restaurant on many occasions down through the years but it has gone down hill a little bit at a time each year, except when they were closed due to Covid. I felt like the place was a little outdated and seemed...kind of grubby looking. The food sadly tasted cheap and tasteless, the service was appalling and the waitress was snappy, rude and disinterested. No staff member came near us once to ask how was the food etc. The food was way over priced too and unfortunately the rashers looked like they hadn't even been cooked. Will never be returning here again as the service wasn't worth it.More

On a recent trip to Killarney, we visited this restaurant after a friend told us it was good. Well we would say brilliant from the welcome at the door, to the amazing food and service. The fact it was full of locals says a lot,...simple well cooked food at a reasonable price. Don’t pass this restaurant by.More
