Nice place to have relaxing dinner

Good food, very good and quick and friendly service. Terrific desserts. Great place to unwind after a day of driving and touring.

Lovely welcome from friendly staff, food and service was excellent,even tho we were eating late in the evening. The only downside is that it is an easy place to miss as the front doesn't do it any justice.

Although their prices are pretty reasonable , their food and service just isn't what you would expect for a Bar so many awards for best service and quality. When we were served our drinks , they came in dirty glasses, They clearly weren't washed or checked before being restocked for use. There was ''mouth'' marks on the rim !! When... More

I have been to many cafes and restaurants in Kilkenny and never have I come across one with better customer service than the marble city tea rooms. One waiter in particular I would like to point out is Ross who goes above and beyond to ensure customers are seen to. Every time I am in there he always stops to... More

We called on a saturday lunchtime and had to go upstairs to eventually find a seat at the counter- first good sign. They also had many award badges on the exrerior which suggested we would not be disappointed. The menu was long enough, the service was first class & the food was up to the standard expected from its awards... More

Were recommended to this Cafe by our tour guide, and we were not disappointed. It is situated in a narrow very quaint street a.ong with many other cafes. The staff were very pleasing and nothing was too much trouble, many types of tea, including my fave Lapsang Souchong, made extra strong as requested. We had bagels, and there were lots... More

saw the awards outside and tried the restaurant upstairs. We were quite impressed with the food though the service could have been better. Our drinks didn't arrive and when we were asked for our food order I mentioned that the girl serving us had probably forgotten us - disappointed to find she had! Still the food was ok just had...
