Entrance to this restaurant is down a lane way so may be easy enough to pass/miss, it is opposite Dunne's Stores so definitely search for it. The host was very welcoming and brought us straight to our table and advised the specials for the night. The waitress gave us adequate time to review the menus before approaching us again. Tables...

Had dinner on a mid week evening during the arts festival with my husband. The restaurant was really busy but the staff coped very well. Food and service was both fantastic. We ate from the early bird menu which was great value and really nice. Well worth a visit.

Was with a group of about 18 people, food was very good, steak served just as I had ordered. Considering the size of the group and that the restaurant was very busy, the service was very efficient.

Visited here after reading the reviews for a good steak place in Kilkenny. Had the early dinner 2 course, with Caesar salad & then rather than the steak, the lamb shank! It was delicious with crisp non-greasy home cooked chips! A very nice meal & friendly staff. Would recommend!

Had tomato and pepper soup, that tasted like it came from a can. Veggie stir fry was okay, had a lot of oyster sauce in it. And... More

The restaurant is on the upper level and overlooks Kieran St and Butterslip Lane with large windows. It has a good selection of steaks as well as other selections. It's a great dinner restaurant.

A big group of us (12-14 people) go to The Cat Laughs comedy festival every year. We've eaten here a few times as a large group. We normally go for the early bird which is good value. Almost everyone had either wings or nachos to start. Nachos were amazing! For the main we all either had chicken cashew nut stir... More
