Faultless friendly excellant tasting food

Hi, I ate here last Saturday evening for the early bird menu. I mean for 32 euro per person for 3 courses this is unbelievable value. This place has genuine character and the chef knows his stuff. We had the fishcakes and the duck sausage for starters. Both were wonderfully presented, hot and... read more

Visited here on a Saturday evening and opted for the early bird. The place had a nice atmosphere and started filling up very quickly. Good choice on the early-bird menu, the fish cakes for starters being the standout dish. Cod for mains was very tasty, if a bit heavily seasoned. Lamb just melted in the mouth. Chocolate dessert was delicious... More

We booked an early bird. If the hostess lost a little of the false D4 (perhaps I should say K4) accent, it would improve the welcome. However the homemade bread is to die for and the food (we both had lamb) was tender and delicious. The house wine was average price and very drinkable. This is a lovely little restaurant... More

We dined there last week,had a delightful meal except for my sweetbread starter which was poor,toasted crumbs came to mind.I informed the waiter who said he would inform the manager and got no response from the maitre d'hôte.Slightly spoiled a lovely experience.

I really wanted to be blown away by this restaurant and went there recently, but it failed to live up to expectations. We had the crisp pigs head and trotter and the ham and comte ravioli. The ravioli was lovely, really nice but thinking the pigs head and trotter might actually be something flamboyant was a mistake. Think fish finger,... More

Truly outstanding. This place beats most of its Dublin contemporaries hands down. Do not miss if in Kilkenny and worth a detour like we made

Shell in the crab mouse was disappointing as it tasted very good. Otherwise really nothing special. I don't think it will keep its star, a real pity .

Campagne is an excellent fine dining experience in Kilkenny. I brought my wife here for our anniversary and this place didn't disappoint! The service was really good and the food was excellent! I had John Dorey fish dish and my wife had the pheasant and both were of the highest standard. Although its prices are not that cheap you are... More
