Visited here on Saturday afternoon for a quick bite. Very welcoming, staff were really friendly and helpful. Food was amazing and menu identified Gluten Free items (always a bonus). Extensive wine menu with lots of choice. Good value for money, highly recommended and I will certainly be returning.

I recently dined with friends in The Grapevine on a busy Saturday night in Kilkenny. We had reservations and we seated immediately. We chosse 10 plates having used the "5 per 2 people" guide on the menu. There was ever so slighty too much on arrival, as the Steak Bruschetta was a larger portion than the other plates. The chicken... More

We stumbled upon this Tapas wine bar on our first night in Ireland. After a long overnight flight and a full day of traveling we had eaten a late lunch, so we're looking for a light dinner. We walked in to check the place out and immediately fell in love with the atmosphere. We ordered some wine and the cheese... More

The Grapevine Tapas restaurant is located just up from John's Bridge. Inside it is really comfortable with nice relaxing music. I found the window seats were a nice place to sit. The Menu is nice with plenty to suit everyone and we chose potato bravas, the battered fish, hummus and the ribs. I would recommend the hummus (although I would... More

This restaurant we were brought to was fantastic. We ordered from a fairly extensive menu and it didn't let us down A taste of everything with prices fairly reasonable. The staff were professional and courteous. A maximum 2 hour stay is allowed for customers and its advisable to book on time.

We ate here last night, sharing tapas for two and a nice bottle of wine. The food was very good, nothing extraordinary but nice tapas well cooked and well presented. The interior of the restaurant is nicely set, with private and comfortable tables and the dim lighting and candlelight makes for a good ambience. The staff were friendly and helpful,... More

We ordered a selection of dishes, patats bravas, meatballs, chicke skewers, lamb stew, squid, prawns, Each of them was just average, nothing wrong with any of them but they just lacked any sort of special flavour. I was very disappointed especially with so many good reviews on here. The interior of restaurant was nice and cosy though with comfy couch... More

Booked last minute, no problem to squeeze us in. Said it would be a table at the back which turned out to be lovely, spacious and romantic with beautiful scenery and lights. Food was served quickly - you can see the kitchen for yourself upstairs and tell it's mostly cooked fresh. Set menu for €49 is well worth it. 5... More
