A delightful local restaurant with a sophisticated atmosphere. Food was good and a respite from the typical pub fare. Prices are a bit high for what you get, but food was delightful and the service was professional.

We dined here last night and it was one of the tastiest meals we have had in a long time, the bread was not long out of the oven and went well with the delicious deep fried mushrooms we had as our starter, they were very generous in size and the baby leaf salad with them was perfectly dressed with...

This cosy little restaurant has great ambience and to-die-for food. I had the lobster bisque that somehow managed to become more delicious with every bite! They had a special of pan fried John Dory, which I never had the pleasure of eating before. This was beautifully prepared, so light and delicious. Others had fish and chips, and remarked how fresh...

My wife and I decided to go a little further afield and try Murphy Black's in Kilkee. It was very easy to get to, basically on your right as you're coming into Kilkee with parking up front. It had a very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, and we really appreciated the service, especially in accommodating me as a vegan. We both... More
