The food was absolutely fantastic... good flavors, great presentation, the staff was very attentive and offered good advice in wine. Bit pricy though... but a wonderful place to have a special dinner.

The food was excellent and service was prompt. The starters were delicious and the beef short ribs were tender and full of flavour. However, I was disappointed in the size of the portions. It is a good thing that we did have starters, or we would have been still hungry with just the main meal. When you eat delicious food,... More

Mary made us feel incredibly welcome as soon as we arrived. The menu is concise but offers a great selection of meat and fish dishes to please any palate. We ordered a lovely Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon, Kerry Lamb, Sirloin Steak and Grilled Sea Bass. The mains were presented beautifully and tasted divine. We each had the Baileys Gelato for dessert...

The food was amazing here! The menu offered fresh locally caught fish to local beef, lamb, pasta and veggie dishes, plus specials of the night. The meals were beautifully plated, delicious, and delivered piping hot to the table. Mary, our hostess was friendly, charming, and efficient.

We had a really tasty meal here on Saturday night. Firstly the lady who served us was very friendly and was nice to all her customers. The restaurant is small but that's ok once you book! The restaurant is nicely decorated and was cosy on a cold October night. The food was great-especially the prawns and monkfish with rice. It... More

Had dinner here last year a number of times , the fish dishes and the steaks are very good, it's a husband and wife team. Front of house wife is excellent. However as there is only one person serving and one cooking there can be a wait for food if there are a few tables full

Fantastic atmosphere and located right in the middle of the town centre. We went to Mareena's Simply Food on two occasions during our four night stay in Killarney. The lamb was perfectly cooked and the chocolate cake was the best I have ever had. We will be back
