Review on Treyvaud's Restaurant
Run by brothers Mark and Paul Treyvaud, this self-named restaurant is a real boon to Killarney with its long opening hours and easy-going attitude. Lunch runs through until 5 o'clock, and the choice of daytime offerings ranges far and wide for fishcakes, meatballs, omelettes, 'sambo's' (elaborate sandwiches and wraps) and a few specials such as beef and Guinness pie with mash.
The evening menu fleshes out the repertoire with international restaurant dishes involving everything from braised shank of Kerry lamb to pan-fried fillet of ostrich with caramelised shallots and red wine jus. Seafood also shows up strongly in the shape of - say - grilled sea bass with zucchini, lime and chive Mascarpone or baked fillet of salmon with a sun-dried tomato and Parmesan crust.
Every November, the restaurant stages an extravagant, world-famous 'Wild Game Night', when grand master Michel Treyvaud comes out of retirement to preside over culinary proceedings. He once cooked for Elvis and Mohammad Ali, but these days he is happy to please the assembled crowds with wild rabbit parfait, roast quail, venison sausages, braised wild duck and much more besides.
