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.

Called here evening of the 13th June having seen their website describing the outdoor dining area, their website states “Our inviting Terrace & Pergola – offers diners an outdoor dining experience whatever the weather” we had drinks while sitting outside on a lovely summer evening,...I then went inside to get menus to be told by a member of staff “we are not serving food outside” I queried this and made the point that we would prefer to dine outside, the member of staff reiterated that if we wanted food we would have to dine inside, I pressed the point saying again we would prefer to dine outside, I was then asked by the staff member “do you have a dog with you or what?”, she then handed me 2 menus and said “I’ll see what I can do for you”. I returned outside and when another staff member approached us apparently to take an order we declined and dined elsewhere.More

Went to this restaurant by default as our hotel didn't have evening dining!! What a gem of a place. We didn't have a booking on a very busy Sat night but our lovely waitress led us to a quiet table. Service excellent and food delicious.... Recommend the coconut and lime cheesecake with Mango sorbet. The best I have ever tasted, compliments to the chef!! Really enjoyed the whole evening. Thank you for accommodating us!More

From the first contact via email to reserve a table for two on the Saturday night before the Kerry v Tyrone NFL game, to the final thank you for coming, the standard of customer care and the food presented was of an exceptional standard. We...arrived just before our 7.30 booking to be warmly greeted and shown to our table in the brassiere. Drinks and meals were ordered in very quick time and given that the number of people eating at that time, we were amazed at how quick the various courses were presented to our table. That is not to say this speed took away from the quality of the food which was delicious to say the least, with all the courses being given a big thumbs up. Fully recommend the spicy chicken drumsticks - the chicken just fell off the bone and thanks also for the considerate wipe to clean sticky hands. Main meals of pizza, and Chicken Maryland has large portions served with a delicious side salad (dressing was something else). Two great desserts and coffees later both of us were completely satisfied with our meals. The bill when it was presented made our meals even more delicious as we were both surprised how competitively priced it was.. Full marks to the staff at Kayne's and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who is looking for great well cooked and presented food, great service and great prices.More

We chanced our arm getting a table in this restaurant as we had decided to be flexible in eating times and we were lucky to get a lovely table last Saturday night. The lady on duty at the door was efficient in checking availability without...making us feel silly for not booking ahead. The place was busy but they have outdoor covered seating too so this gives other options for guests. We got drinks first and then ordered chicken curry and roast chicken and both were very good. The lovely waitress serving made us feel great and she was the same with all the guests at the tables around us. We were so glad we ate here.More

Apologies John, I think you may have pushed the wrong button, as am a regular customer and not in fact affiliated with the hotel. I suggest looking online on hotel broker forums for the best rates available.
