I had dined many times at La Vie En Rose in Melville Road and this was my first visit to KCC. I was very disappointed. My small piece Norwegan Salmon was served skin side up? with a salad which was served in a small ramekin. The salad consisted of 6 Soggy rocket leaves. 6 garden peas and 3 thin slices... More

I did book a table, but when I arrived at La Vie en Rose, I was told I could sit anywhere. I chose to sit outside but when it started raining, asked to be moved inside. We were put away in the corner despite my booking, and told they were fully booked for a function. The writing on the menu... More

We celebrated a birthday lunch at La Vie en Rose in Sunday. Sitting under the lovely trees on a gorgeous day enjoying great food, is definitely the way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Our waitress Bianca was extremely helpful and efficient, nothing was to much for her. The food portion were very generous and very tasty. The menu has some... More

La Vie and Rose is a lovely and refreshingly simple venue with excellent service and the most delicious food. One small glitch was a bowl of cold chips. The desserts are legendary!

Attended a farewell, lunch time function during the week. Located on the premises of the Killarney country it really is a very attractive garden setting. Had a meeting on the lawns prior to the luncheon and the beverage service was very attentive. Lunch was a buffet with served snacks prior to the buffet mains. Again the service was friendly and...

An evening spent with a fine choice from the cellar, great food and good service. The chef was able to accommodate gluten free requirements. The party was able to have conversations without being constantly disturbed and yet the waiters were attentive. I would suggest some training for pouring wine as were put in the uncomfortable position of telling the waiter... More

We popped past for a birthday afternoon tea. Service was great but rest was a let down. Scones were pathetic - cupcake like things with a tiny squirt of cream. To top is all off they had no tea - seriously, no tea bags for black tea. I mean please!

Hi Mathew, Thanks for taking the time to write this review, we believe we can only grow as a business when we get constructive criticism, so thank you! With regards to our scones, they are homemade and our version of the classic scone, a lot of our clients love them but I am truly sorry that you didn't, maybe the... More
