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.

Uncorked bottle of wine given at meal. Zero customer service. Extremely expensive (Dublin cheaper), food just blah and zero atmosphere. Ran by teenagers.

My friend & myself stayed here for 2 nights. The accommodation is of a very high standard. We had a beautiful room very tastefully decorated & spotlessly clean. The breakfast in the room was a great idea, with tasty pastries, fresh fruit, smoke salmon local...cheese & so much more. We were nibbling all day. Our room had a patio which we sat out on for breakfast. There was a gorgeous garden to browse around. Highly recommend a visit. MichèleMore

We were staying on Valentia Island and decided to take the ferry accross to Cahersiveen one evening around 4pm. to explore the place and get something to eat. We noticed QC's and popped in at 5pm to see if we could get a table. We...were very lucky, we got a table for 5.30pm (best to book in advance, it is a busy spot). The restaurant was beautifully designed, modern and it had a lovely space behind the restaurand for outdoor dining! The seafood was delicious and the dessert was divine! The restaurant got very busy around 6.30pm. Some of the staff were a little inexperienced however overall we felt it was excellent and we would go back again!More

While staying at the affiliated (and poorly run) hotel we thought that eating onsite would be to our relaxation advantage, unfortunately we dealt with slow and disorganized service. The food was fine, but certainly not memorable. Sadly, I think giving the entire town a miss...would be to every tourists advantage.More

Food very good but I am allergic to garlic so I was very limited. Staff were not very experienced. Restaurant was very busy. Desert was very good.

QCs know how it's done!. Their accommodation is top class and uniquely quirky. We dined twice in the restaurant and enjoyed beautifully prepared locally sourced seafood and steaks. On a personal note we would like to sincerely thank Kate for her very kind gesture. Don't...pass through Cahersiveen without calling to QCs !!! Claire and John Mccarthy Ennis.More

We are at QCs last night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The bisque was bursting with flavour and the calamari was so soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. The steak was just perfect and the prawns fat and juicy. Lovely atmosphere, especially...for a wednesday night in October. If you are in South Kerry you must visit this restaurant. Thanks.More

Dissapointing this year. Good food let down by poor and inattentive service. Management pre-occupied and uninvolved. Worryingly...we had to offer our covid certs to the manager for verification...
