Marbleous!!

Classy Bar and great food. Located on Kilkenny's main High Street. Does all for types very well. The atmosphere is somewhat dark and overcrowded but this is not a problem for me. I would recommend it for a terrific lunch rather than a romantic meal!

My partner and I had, again, a wonderful meal here last saturday. The stall are so friendly and helpful. We love the 60's, 70's 80's music that the DJ playes every saturday night. Great atmosphere and the place was buzzing.

Dropped in here for a drink with my boyfriend yesterday and having seen some of the dinner dishes going out to different tables and all the awards plaques on the wall, we decided to come back for dinner last night! Great decision!!! My boyfriend had a vegetable broth with three different types of bread - it tasted so good! I... More

Restuarant was very busy - but we finally found a table and were served really quickly. Food was good and not too expensive. Did seem to add tortilla chips to all the meals - not sure why! Atmosphere good and staff were friendly and welcoming.

My wife and I went for a lunch in this bar. We were seated quite fast and were taken our orders. I ordered burger and my wife fish and chips (cod). While my burger was ok, her fish was tasteless and the pies were bad. We both got chips that had a taste of old used oil. Do not go... More

The food was excellent, we wanted good home style food that warmed us... More

Great quality food. Good portion sizes. In the centre of Kilkenny city. Breakfast menu is delicious, berry porridge and bacon pancakes both my fav's. Never quiet which tells all really.
