“Outstanding”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

The best meal we had on our tour of Loop Head. The chap who owns it recommended a few specials. I had the Monkfish Prawn tails. The restaurant is very busy and booking is a must.
Try and get the window table and watch life go by in this lovely seaside town.

“Excellent food and staff”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Was in Kilkee last weekend - 9th August - to celebrate a friends birthday - 4 women. Booked Murphy Blacks - it was just excellent - we went for the early bird - not a fault to be found with it. Excellent starter and main course and a very generous glass of beautiful red house wine. Congts. You deserve to be promoted. Excellent meal, excellent service and excellent price.

“Wow oh wow! ”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is located in Kilkee town. They have two settings per night. We arrived in time for the early bird seating. We had a choice of menus (early bird and a la carte) there was no real difference between the two....until we were told the specials. Oh boy! Mouth watering choice after choice. The food arrived and each dish was better than the last. We were constantly sampling each other's dishes. The best had to be the crab hot pot and the sampling plate for starters followed by the surf and turf kebab and seared scallops for main. We skipped the dessert. Expect to pay €35/person approx. fabulous fabulous fabulous!

“Great food lovely people”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We enjoyed a family meal here during our week in Kilkee. It was one of the best meals we've had. The chef should be complimented for the fantastic fish dishes. All four of us had fish starters and mains. The fish was superbly fresh and properly treated in the kitchen. The wine list is good. We had really nice service from friendly staff and the manager engages diners in conversation also. I thoroughly recommend it. As someone else said its not cheap but it is good value!

“satisfaction by the sea”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I had a wonderful meal in this restaurant with 2 others. The choice was very good and I opted for the daily fish special. It was excellently presented and a joy on the taste buds. While not cheap it was very good fare. All 3 of us were very impressed with the service choice and the friendliness and knowledge of the staff. A place to be visited again.
