Ripley's Steakhouse is on the Butterslip, one of the tiny medieval alleyways that link Kilkenny's streets. It was recommended to us by several people, and lived up to its reputation for quality. The restaurant has a cosy atmosphere, the staff are plentiful and enthusiastic. There were fifteen of us, gathered for a hastily-arranged pre-Christmas lunch. The menu was not over-complicated,...

A really nice restaurant located in the butterslip. This restaurant has a good menu - there is something good there for everyone! Staff are very friendly and welcoming.

Enjoyed a melt in your mouth fillet steak. We all enjoyed our meals which came with fries. onions, mushroom and choice of steak. Good sized portions. There was a slight smell of smoke from the cooking, the staff were very nice. Probably could do with updating the décor.

I booked a table for my mother's 60th birthday with high hopes as the menu seemed quite good. First impressions were bad as the decor is ridiculous, very oriental, and the restaurant is full of smoke from the kitchen. A comically bad attempt at calligraphy on a chalkboard with glaring spelling mistakes was a highlight. The place was relatively busy,... More
