A superb choice for dinner with a fantastic vegetarian menu in addition to the a la carte. Extensive wine list also and a selection of local craft beers. The food here is amazing. Locally sourced, beautifully presented and full of flavour. Friendly service and a...relaxed atmosphere. We will be back again.More

With my wife, son and I we had a wonderful meal there last Sunday night. The presentation and taste was first class. The staff were very pleasant and efficient. Each course came on time. We enjoyed every mouthful. We will be back.

We had our temperatures checked on arrival and were brought to a covered outdoor space that had been set up for dining. The service was fantastic - very friendly, attentive and helpful. The menu, though not extensive, covers a wide range of tastes and I...love the focus on locally sourced produce. Everything was cooked to perfection, the scallops were juicy, the duck was crisp, the lobster was moreish and the chocolate fondants were oozing (yum!).More

We ate here twice this week when holidaying in Tralee. Wonderful, wonderful. The food is amazing. Everything sourced locally so freshness and fresh flavours are guaranteed. All of our party loved it. Noel the chef and owner and his staff made us feel welcomed into...their establishment. We also have Noels brown bread receipe that he kindly shared. Would love to come back for dinner tonight but we are currently travelling towards home. Next time.More

Outdoor dining , if you’re in the area it’s a must. Food is delish, vegan options available. Depends what you order portion sizes differ. My vegan starter wasn’t big but perfectly enough for my liking, main vegan meal was huge. My hubby has had mussels...for a starter - portion was huge and a steak for main which was huge size as well. Everything beautifully served. Book a table in advance. Staff extremely friendly and helpful.More

I mean it, I had the most unbelievable steak here in croi. We are a family of four and were made feel most welcome by the friendliest staff ever. The menu is fantastic the minute I started reading it my mouth was salabating. We had...prawns and mozzarella to start and the steak cooked to perfection was a real party in the mouth. This restaurant is top class one of the best I've ever been in, food was so fresh I can't wait to return. I wish you the best of luck with it.More

Party of 4 for dinner on a Tuesday evening. Restaurant was busy but not over crowded, a nice buzz around! Great to see all Covid protocol are being adhered to, temp checks and contact tracing! Unfortunately that is all I can say that is positive....The food was okay, it was tasty and the presentation was beautiful but the steak was over cooked, lamb was quite dry and we waited untill or meal arrived to get out drinks. Also the outdoor seating is not quite what we expected, and in fact we were very disappointed. We were guided out the back through the alley to the kitchen and sat adjacent to the bins, which thankfully the wind changed direction before our meal arrived. I am very aware that this last year has been hard for all industries but I did expect so much more from Croí.More

To be honest, I can't remember, but I can't remember it being overly expensive. It was a lovely restaurant.
