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.

Service Amazing.... 5 star. Mussels great starter option and we had salmon and duck dishes. Ambience and overall buzz was great. Special thanks to Gabin who was great. Have eaten here many times and always top class.

The restaurant bar looks grubby. The brass needs a proper clean. The walls are stumble and marble. Both finishes need cleaning. The visible wine cellar needs to be tidy instead of random boxes on the floor. The food is adequate. Not top notch. Too much...lettuce frisée with my crab. Scallops slightly over done. Asparagus ends not shaved so they were tough. The thin cut chips were a mix of perfect and overcooked. The lemon meringue roulade was excellent. Needs a good shake up.More

A group of 8 of us visited La Marine recently to celebrate my father in law's birthday. It was superb from start to finish! We enjoyed a pre-dinner drink in the bar before hand and were served by the very professional and friendly Patrick. There...is a cocktail list which we perused, but who can pass up the selection of delicious wines, especially when you can see right into the cellar! Paul led us to our table and himself and Breda looked after us all evening. We enjoyed a mixture of dishes from the Early Bird Menu (Excellent Value!!) and the A La Carte menu. All 8 of us tried something different from Steak, Hake to Spatchcock chicken, with no complaints from anyone! A birthday cake arrived for the Birthday Boy and a great fuss was made! This is not my first time to La Marine, and it won't be the last! It truly is A Jewel In the Crown" and a great asses to Rosslare and Wexford.More

Went for lunch as was given it as a voucher as a Christmas present. Sat promptly. It was very cold in the restaurant ,I did ask the waitress and she said it was from the opening and closing of the door .We were not sitting...near the door but I accepted it and kept my coat on . A young man was being trained in and we were his first table to practice.Ok I told them I had been in the business for 27 years and opened fine dining restaurants so I understood that one has to start somewhere. Starters, each mussel was separated in a dish one would get with when serving les escargots. Unnecessary as we are by the sea so look forward to getting "hands in the bowl" ..but I image it's a space issue on the table . Partner had deep fried chicken... grizzle in chicken which is unpleasant to pick out of your mouth ,bland , nasty,really unpleasant.If the chef is tasting this it would not of been served. Hake main , uncomplicated, seasoned,fine . Duck main ,cooked well, uncomplicated fine . Dessert. Cheese board .....bland , unripened cheese ,cold ,cut thick. ..nasty and pointless... Partner . almond tart ...she enjoyed it . Got wrong forgotten coffees but that's fine as training in place . Restaurant manager ,fine ,look after customers ,need to wear actually mask over nose . This experience was soo average... No thank you ,service good ,food BLAND..More

Had a fabulous lunch in La Marine Bistro today. The atmosphere was fabulous and the staff were incredible. Here is an example of a restaurant (and hotel) that knows the value of service. I will be highly recommending to friends & family! And the food!!...Well done to the Chef, crafting an actual tasty and nutritious plant-based menu (yes more than 1 option!). I was so impressed, thank you to all of the staff for a beautiful afternoon in Rosslare. Will be back soon!More

As a party of 4, we travelled to Kelly's Rosslare from Dublin on Monday last, 6 Sept. It was my first time and I had heard great things. The first impression was that the outside dining area was grubby and needed attention. Within less than...5 minutes of ordering, our food arrived- I was wary but hey, this was Kellys, right? Wrong. Two of us ordered the chichen on bruschetta with avacado salsa and wedges, my mum ordered the chowder and my sister ordered the duck confit. Everything on my plate was cold, brown and awful! I've honestly never seen anything like it. The chicken was presented in 2 thin over cooked slivers, the wedges were reheated, cold and tasted like the old fat. The avacado salsa was anything but fresh and was tasteless with a brown tinge. My husband was horrified and felt quite ill afterwards. The chowder was inedible according to my mum and I watched as she pulled a large bone from her mouth with the first spoonful. My sister said the duck confit was good but the salad and old and saturated wedges were disgraceful. Nobody came to ask how our food was and in the end, we just called for the bill and left. This was lazy, indifferent and arrogant cheffing.More

Delighted to return to this restaurant. Covid regulations in place and well spaced out tables. Amazing food, wine and service. Would highly recommend the monkfish and rack of lamb for mains. Homemade desserts were excellent. We had our table for two hours which was adequate...as service was prompt. The menu selection was impressive. Book early to avoid disappointment as this restaurant is busy at weekends. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit.More

La Marine Bistro is part of the Kelly's Hotel operation. If you are a guest in the hotel you may dine indoors. If you are a passing tourist you are welcome to dine outdoors - at a table under the sun or under a marquee...that is heated. It is a popular spot and it may be wise to book a table in advance to avoid disappointment. The staff are warm and welcoming and very efficient. There is a good variety of food options on the menu, and the food itself is very tasty. Not overly expensive, but in the mid-price range. There is a lovely holiday feel to the outdoors area. Recommended.More
