Enjoyable eat

We went for an early bird which was €24 per person for three courses. A bottle of house red wine for an additional €21. The restaurant is small enough but we were sat at a large glass window out looking onto a street in kilkenny which we enjoyed.. It felt a bit romantic! The food was gorgeous... read more

I sat down to the table with 3 friends of mine and for some reason I said I'd check out the reviews on trip advisor. The bad ones were so bad! My starter arrived and it was only ok. But my mains were just beautiful. Best ribs I've had. Good portions and nice atmosphere. Yes it gets a bit smokey... More

Had dinner Sunday night as had voucher to use. The staff were excellent and so accommodating - I requested the stir fry with rice instead of noodles, my husband asked was it possible to have a sauce that wasn't on the menu and no problem for either. We shared duck spring rolls, husband had steak with chips and I had... More

I visited hear recently with family and our experience was outstanding. Our food arrived on time and well presented for every course, and it was delicious. The nachos were massive for a starter, but very tasty! Would definitely recommend this place to eat, and great early bird price too.

My husband and I visited Ripleys in December. It was just ok; service ok, food ok and atmosphere ok! Prices are quite reasonable for what you get.

The staff here were very friendly and very helpful. However the food on the other hand was very disappointing. We ended up leaving half our food behind. Very disappointing from a venue we had higher expectations for.

Whilst this was a pleasant dinner experience, it was far from perfect. The menu was slightly boring with mostly steak & Mexican themed dishes. The steak was generous & cooked rare to my liking, however the sides were bland & sauce just average. My partner ordered a fajita main and was very disappointed. Again it was presented nicely and was... More

Really enjoyed our meal at ripleys in kilkenny. The service was lovely and very friendly and the paintings around the room were a great focal point. The food was great and we were asked several times if we were okay for everything. Price was reasonable and the general atmosphere was relaxed and warm.

We visited rip keys last Thursday night. It was very quiet and had no ambience. The deep fried Brie I had to start was still solid in the middle and my burger was tasteless. My husbands steak was not cooked as requested and his chips seemed to be reheated. Prices were reasonable and service was good.
