By far one of the best meals I have ever had…. Only outdone by the amazing service from Angelo. We were a group of ten from Canada here for a wedding. The Tan Yard was recommended by our taxi driver and from start to finish...it was spectacular. We enjoyed various dishes from the menu and all of it was perfect. The atmosphere coupled with the fantastic service made a night to remember. I have travelled many places around the globe and this meal ranks in the top. Highly recommend !More

I was recommended the Tan Yard by a friend and it did not disappoint from the second we stepped foot in the door the host David treated us like we were the only people in the building and went through the menu thoroughly with us...and was very knowledgeable about the menu and made our decisions easy. The manager Angelo came down to check our food and drinks were okay for us and we had a little chat about football and other things made it feel like I was chatting to an old friend. Would really recommend the Tan Yard and will definitely be back.More

We didn't realize that the restaurant is in the Killarney Plaza Hotel, and we felt under-dressed. However, the staff treated everyone equally, and we were well cared for during our meal. We decided to splurge and split the Tomahawk steak, and with this, we could...choose two sides. I was in heaven with my sugar snap peas with bacon and hazelnuts, while my husband enjoyed the broccoli. Our steak was prepared correctly, and was sliced off the bone for us. Unfortunately, it was fairly tough throughout, although the flavor was good. We both really liked the chimichurri sauce. Overall, a nice meal.More

Hi Siobhan, it's a good idea to book on our busier nights but it's not necessary - there may be a small wait on some nights and you can enjoy a drink downstairs in Café du Parc while you wait a short time if that is the case.
