Had dinner here last year a number of times , the fish dishes and the steaks are very good, it's a husband and wife team. Front of house wife is excellent. However as there is only one person serving and one cooking there can be a wait for food if there are a few tables full

Fantastic atmosphere and located right in the middle of the town centre. We went to Mareena's Simply Food on two occasions during our four night stay in Killarney. The lamb was perfectly cooked and the chocolate cake was the best I have ever had. We will be back

We ate here one night while in Killarney. The food was excellent. Well presented and good menu. Very tasty food and the Eve's pudding for dessert was delicious. There are so many restaurants in Killarney but mareenas is definitely worth a visit.

We had dinner here one evening this month. There was lots to love about this restaurant. It's pretty small and seemed to be run with a lady front of house and a man in the kitchen. The food was delicious with special shout outs for the scallops and the turbot - both excellent. The wine list was interesting if a... More

This restaurant is an example of how excellent food combined with friendly service is available at reasonable prices. The prawn cocktail used plump, juicy tiger prawns whilst the lamb was so tender, cutting through it was as easy as cutting through butter. The dessert of Baileys chocolate ice cream meringue was refreshing and addictive. A memorable place with warm service.

I don't think anyone at our table of six ordered the same dish and everyone was pleased with their choices! The short ribs were a particular favorite! I was also very impressed by the service. For one woman to handle all of those tables efficiently while providing friendly service is worth note. I would definitely return if we were ever... More

My husband and I ate at this restaurant after reading the positive reviews in TripAdvisor. We were thrilled with the experience. We had no reservation but went to eat early at 6 PM and learned we would be unable to eat anytime after 6:15 because of heavy booking. The restaurant is only open from 6 to 9 PM 6 days... More

A small intimate restaurant run by just two people therefore booking is advised as all food is freshly prepared. The food was amazing - prawn cocktail and crab cakes to start followed by sea bass and monk fish with prawns. Everything was beautifully presented and of excellent quality and the service was attentive and welcoming. It is so refreshing to... More
