Tasty food

Enjoyed a very tasty meal in this bar recently. The 3 ladies working there were very attentive and couldn't be helpful enough.

Had a meal here was a bit sceptical after the reviews! But it was lovely, great selection and efficient staff. We had a main course and drinks, got iced water without asking, sauces, vinegar etc!! Portion sizes were excellent. Great atmosphere, a lovely place. We were too full for dessert but they looked lovely!

We have lunched here in the past and always had good food so we decided to have dinner here this time, and the food was as good as ever. A nice selection on the menu, some good additions as the daily specials, and all priced well. There were two musicians playing when we were there, very entertaining and not too... More

We ate here twice. We were lucky enough to enjoy some great music(a duo called barefoot I think) as well one Monday evening. The food was delicious and the portions are very large and the staff were very kind. Love it here.

We decided to stop in here for a spot of lunch, the bar / dining area is very tastefully decorated in an art deco style and very classy looking. I decided to go for the chicken wrap, I'm not sure if it stated on the menu that there was Brie cheese in the wrap but there was way too much... More

We visited Kilkenny recently with a party of 8 people. We had four adults and four children (ages 11-15). It was by far the most enjoyable lunch of our trip. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was very good. Everyone ordered something different and all were happy. The chorizo and chicken salad was excellent!

We visited the bar/tea room on a tip from a local and we were not disappointed! Delicious breakfast and coffee with the most delightful biscuits. Attentive and friendly staff with fast service.

We always make a beeline for the Marble City Bar when we visit Kilkenny city. They offer a range of unusual salads - all fresh and tasty. Great burgers are on offer and there are delicious starters such as chicken wings which can serve as a light bite if you're not too hungry. Service always comes with a smile. This... More

Called in after a doing a bit of shopping, we both ordered the joint of the day which was beef, within 5 min a waiter came out with our food which should have been a warning sign, the gravy and potatoes were cold the meat was a bit warmer, found the toilets to be filthy too, very disappointed as usually...
