Great food and great service

We visited The Grapevine last week for the first time. The menu is quite varied and there is definitely something for everyone. Very good value. Try the hummus!

Visited the Grapevine for a late night light dinner while walking around Kilkenny. The restaurant is really quaint and welcoming with nice seating. You could either choose love seats with tables to sit at or regular tables and chairs. The atmosphere is very relaxed you could stay and enjoy yourself as long as you pleased. The menu had a simple... More

I'm a fan of tapas so had to try this place. I had actually picked out The Salt Yard but they close Mondays and Tuesdays so The Grapevine got our business instead and we weren't disappointed. The waitress here was so charming and really nice. She was friendly without being intrusive. We sat on the low sofa seats at the... More

The room was freezing - some people were sitting with their coats on! The food was cold too. Such a pity as we were massively hungry. The waiting staff were really pleasant but we were so disappointed with our tapas. On the subject of the tapas - most of them are not remotely Spanish but I'm not sure if they... More

I recently visited this tapas bar. Food is very nice, staff pleasant. Could do with more cushions at the front and some heating. we were cold and did tell the waitress but we couldn't be moved. when a table became free we did move but it was no warmer. I would visit again but think I will stick to summer... More

I have visited here on a number of occasions over the past few years and I really believe the quality of the food and service has gone downhill. My most recent booking was a Sunday evening and there was very little atmosphere in the place. On the positive side the calamari and pate were delicious. However...the bread was hard and... More
