Had a great time here. My friend and I had a voucher to use amd decided to yo this evening. Mary was very helpful when booking on the phone. Yuri greeted us at the desk, explained the menu and took our order promptly. Our servers, Karol and another girl whose name we didn't get were lovely, attentive and helpful throughout the evening. After dinner we decided to have a drink in the bar, which is lovely and cosy, and Todd was approachable and chatty. My friend and myself work in the hospitality industry and we thought the overall experience was sublime.

We were looking forward to dining here based on reviews. The menu looked good so I was excited to try the food but unfortunately it did not live up to expectations. The food was presented beautifully but the flavours were not there. I have eaten in many fine dining places and this just didn’t match up. Usually all the sauces and that on the plate pack a punch of flavour but everything was quite bland. One of our party ordered the chicken for mains not realising it was cooked in a way that it was steamed/poached as it did not mention this on the menu. The texture was not good but on telling a staff member our disappointment we were kindly given a complimentary dessert and glass of wine. The portions are also more suited to a tasting menu and not for a 3 course meal. €11 for dessert is also extremely expensive. Also for €28 I would expect more then 2 slices of beef. The staff were good but we felt a bit ignored after airing our disappointment with the food and had to ask twice for coffee even though the table near us ordered after us. We’ve tried it at least but will not be returning.

Dear Gillian S,

Thank you for your review which we were very disappointed to read. You had obviously read all the other glowing reviews we have received and we are very sorry that you did not enjoy your experience in the Herbert Restaurant.
Our table d'hote menu is a 4 course menu plus tea/coffee. We also serve an breads and an amuse bouche to all diners. We take on board your comments about having a more descriptive menu particularly on the way dishes are cooked.
We appreciate your kind compliments on the staff and apologise that you had to request your coffee, this should of course be in the natural order of service.

We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay at Cahernane house and thank you for your visit,

Kind regards
Emer & all the team.

The food is some of the best I have ever tasted!!! The tastes just jump out at you!!! So elegant and flavorful!!! We had the five course dinners and each and every bite was exquisite!!!

From the time you sit down until you have completed your meal you are pampered!!! It is very hard to impress me and this restaurant does exactly that. I wish we had stopped in years ago!!! What a find!!! Do yourself a favor and book a special occasion with someone special!!!

My husband and I had a meal in this wonderful restaurant in September and I'm only getting round to write this review now. Well from start to finish it was just fantastic. The starters were so delicious and the main course of fillet steak was melt in the mouth. Not forgetting the gin and tonic sorbet. It's a meal we would rate up there in the top restaurants we have visited. The maitre'd was very attentive and the waitresses very knowledgeable about all the dishes. As each dish was brought out with cloches a waiter or waitress took them off at the same time, attention to detail all round. This restaurant has a wonderful chef who should be highly praised. Can't wait to go back to Killarney next year and go back to this restaurant again
