La revista restaurant a few minutes walk from kilkennys main street is well worth a visit. The smithwicks brewery and watergate theatre are across the street, plus some traditional pubs nearby also. There is a varied menue and a nice wine list. There is an emphise on quality service and great value for money. Families are welcome and catered for.

Went for a meal with family of seven to la Rivista on Christmas Eve. The whole experience was excellent. Very good food and wine selection. There was a great choice of starters mains and deserts. All plates went back empty. The hake was particularly delicious. The atmosphere was lovely and it was very reasonably priced; 170 euro for two courses... More

I absolutely love this place. I go here everytime I'm in Kilkenny. The food is fabulous, the staff are friendly, polite & helpful. It's always a busy restaurant, but the service never suffers. The Ceasar Salad is the best I've ever tasted & their desserts are to die for!! Love it, love it love it....can't wait for my next visit!!
