I first ate in the Marble City Bar in Kilkenny back in 1990, and have been there on many trips since.

I had the roast chicken stuffed with black pudding and wrapped in bacon with mash & veg at lunch time for €10 which was great value. Food was delicious, my only criticism would be the presentation, having gone to the trouble of stuffing and wrapping the chicken, the potato and veg appeared to have just been slopped onto the plate.

Very nice dinner after a lot of sightseeing -- we were running into the situation where the bars were not serving food and getting a bit worried when locals directed us to Marble City. We had an excellent server who took great care of our party of 4 -- lots of fun sharing each other's meals and relaxing through desert... More

Stopped here for coffee and cake. Reasonably priced and nice. Wifi didn't work which was a bit annoying. Good service too. Nothing too special but a nice little spot for lunch.

Good,average, well-cooked food,if a little unimaginative. My major complaint is that I can't see what I am eating because the lighting is so subdued! Good value.

Had lunch here in the downstairs area, We had the chicken burgers with fried potatoes and salsa. the chicken was minced, which we enjoyed for a change as we were expecting a fillet. We enjoyed our lunch in a nice setting. We would go again as the passing food looked appetising!
