I was very pleased with the service within the marble city tea rooms. A young girl with blonde hair provided excellent friendly service to us. She was pleasant and assisting when trying to decide on food. She ensured that we were happy with our food and offered further assistance if necessary. This friendly atmosphere will encourage me to return again.

We had dinner here Saturday 16th Jan. Food was fantastic .And the staff were very pleasant. The menu selection wasn't huge but to be honest I don't think it needed to be every dish shone of quality.

I went with the soup for starters, which was more than big enough, it came with two slices of brown bread and butter. I then had the steak sandwich which was equally as good, this came with chips and pepper sauce. Very filling. Overall... More

For a pub/ resturant, my fiancé and I were very surprised at the quality food and staff that served us for dinner. Everyone is very attentive and was cheery. Servers have a sense of humor and selection of food was wonderful. From start to finish it was a great meal and lovely decor.

My wife and I had lunch here again last week while staying in Kilkenny. Always love it here. Great menu. Food always very good with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Ideally located. Outside tables great for people watching as its on a pedestrian street. Would recommend.
