Nice place to eat in Kilkenny

Often stop here for lunch. Nice menu and prices are average for the city. Food is piping hot and service is quick. Guinness is top notch.

We stopped by to eat something in the evening while looking for an open restaurant on Sunday. I have to say that I eat the best meal ever. Pan Fried Cajun Chicken is something you definitely want to try. Bon appetite!

This is a really lovely bar, full of character, which is why we thought we'd eat there. Menu sounds lovely, but I'm afraid the food is a bit mediocre and not very tasty. Wouldn't recommend!

If you are looking for good food, good value and good service at the end of a day in the city I would recommend this place. The food was served very quickly and was piping hot and tasty. The staff are attentive and pleasant. Enjoyed our meal in the relaxed atmosphere and it was great value as well.

Though recommended by our hotel, we were not impressed with this pub. Very poor, disinterested service. Food was only average at best.

Nice little spot for a quick lunch and a bit of people watching as the world goes by sitting out in the terrace. We both had a soup and sandwich combo, it was French onion soup and we both had a chicken sandwich, Mrs had a chicken salad and I had plain chicken which the kindly toasted for me. The... More

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
