Quick lunch

Our family of 4 stopped here for a quick lunch while visiting Kilkenny recently. Staff were attentive and friendly and service was prompt but not rushed. We all had the soup of the day (vegetable) for our lunch which was very enjoyable and was served with a variety of breads.

The place was nice inside, but the food didn't meet my expectations. I had pork 3 ways and the chops were very dry. The carrot soup, however, was fabulous. Wish I would have stopped there.

Marble City is clustered with a number of similar restaurants/coffee shops on a pedestrian mall just off High Street is a busy part of Kilkenny. It houses a full restaurant as well as a small quick eats area with both inside and outside seating. We stopped for a quick meal and found it to be decent enough but not special.... More

Great welcome. Perfect staff who are so polite and charming. Both Michael who was our waiter and the Manager who also came over to ensure all was good. The meal of Irish supreme chicken and Irish steak were just right. Good wine selection. The atmosphere was lovely . I also felt that the staff were appreciative of the custom from... More

I very rarely complain about food even when its bad I can find some good but the food I got here was abysmal to say the least. I got what they called an 8oz steak and there was no way it was 8oz, I've ate plenty of steak to know how big it should have been, and all that came... More

Had some tea here Sunday eve. The service was lacklustre. Just untrained guys. Food was grand. Sustenance. It was cheap at 25€ for two. No drinks! It's basic, but does the job. Would return.
