    Absolutely Outstanding. Fine dining at its best. A testament to the owners The Hickeys to have a chef of this standard. All the food sourced locally supporting local businesses and their families.

    We've been many times before and have loved it but the chef surpassed themselves on Saturday night. The food was absolutely amazing. I think it's the nicest meal we've had there even though they have all been beautiful. I have to commend the chef and of course the front of house staff too Always so welcoming and courteous. CNt wait to see what I'll have the next time I'm there

    We visit each Aug when we are in Kilkee and always look forward to it. Service very good as usual, lovely young man , with good knowledge about the menu. Menu same as last year , short but with nice variety. Specials up on a blackboard on the wall, you had to leave your seat to read them, not a big deal for people with good eyesight and mobility. Not ideal though. Will return next year

    Food was good but delivery was too fast. Amuse bouche, breads, starters and main courses completed in 50 mins which is unacceptable. Wagu beef that was advertised on the menu did not taste like melt in the mouth beef.

    Best in the general location of kilkee and surrounding towns/villages On a par with menu prices but far exceeds value and quality. Space is limited and tables very close together. For some this may create an intimate feel and for others not so much so. All in all by far the best food experience around

Could not recommend pollock and porter enough. Its a hidden gem and deserves 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ when in kilkee make sure to make this restaurant top of your list ❤️
