Rozzers Restaurant at Killeen House Hotel is known far and wide as a destination restaurant and it has a fabulous reputation for providing its diners with a fantastic food & drink experience that will leave you wanting more. Over the years Rozzers has received many accolades, the most recent of which is ‘Best Dining Restaurant in Ireland’ as voted by TripAdvisor customers.
Executive Head Chef Paul O’Gorman leads a talented team of chefs in the kitchen, all of which are dedicated to providing quality food in a delightful way. This quality is matched with the hospitality service paid to customers from the moment they arrive.
Rozzers’ setting also lends to its magic. The restaurant is set within views of the hotel’s stunning gardens along with views of the nearby Macgillycuddy Reeks, Ireland’s highest mountain range.
Rozzers Restaurant also has that timeless classical atmosphere that is so amazing. Tables are dressed with crisp white linens while each place setting is marked with a restaurant cover plate. Glimmering wine glasses are set and waiting for that first sip of wine as you anticipate your meal. The whole offering sets a classy tone that is a prelude to the dining experience to come.
During our visit to Rozzers Restaurant, we had the pleasure of chatting with Executive Chef Paul who had just received a delivery of fresh fish, this of course influenced what we would sample from the menu when dining later on that day.
Michelle Rosney was kind enough to guide us through that menu and suggested the house speciality – Open Ravioli with Seared Scallops and Prawns, served with a delicate Leek, Courgette and Garlic Cream Sauce. This was a showstopper of a dish, presented as a deconstructed Ravioli, with an excellent flavour that matched its beautiful presentation.
For the main, we decided to try out their Medallions of Monkfish served with a shellfish Paella, and once again we were blown away by the taste. The cooking skills and knowledge of the menu on show were exceptional in every way.
It comes as no surprise that Rozzers Restaurant has gained so many top accolades.
