Number 35

This restaurant in the centre of Kenmare is in common ownership with the nearby Brook Lane Hotel and even in a town that has earned such renown for the quality of its food and hospitality, it has a lot going for it, especially in terms of atmosphere - on two floors with lots of wood and open stone in view, it has a warm and welcoming feeling even on a wet night.


The tables are quite close - but not too close for comfort, and friendly, well-briefed waiting staff work well to make a visit here a real pleasure.


Menus offer a wide range of dishes, including pasta and pizza sections where most dishes are around €14.95 or under. A sharing platter of starters for two or more is a sociable way to start the meal and overall you’ll find plenty of treats, based mainly on local ingredients. While there's a leaning towards local seafood, lamb is from the local Ring of Kerry Lamb Producer Group (try it in a slow-cooked Kerry lamb stew, perhaps) and fresh produce comes from local grower Billy Clifford’s organic farm.


Farmhouse cheeses are offered and desserts are homemade - strawberries and cream may be theme of the house pavlova in season, perhaps - and locally made ice cream is available too.


Prices are very fair, and the carefully selected wine list is a good match for the food. Good cooking, lovely service and a great atmosphere make this restaurant stand out – everybody loves it.


The Back Room is available for small private parties and the special group menu offers plenty of choice together with good value.

Seats 40 (private room, 16). D only Wed-Mon, 6-10. A la carte; also early value 2/3 course D €24.95/29.95 daily except Sat; group menu €30. House wine from €19. Children welcome (high chair, childrens menu). Closed Mon & Tue; call ahead to check opening times off season. MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
