8 of us had a meal here to celebrate our friends 30th Birthday, the hotel allowed us to go early with balloons for the table and to bring along a cake (a lot of places don't allow this so we were delighted).

Felt like a locals restaurant. On a "slip" sidestreet. No reservation, but we got right in. Very good service, very good food. Recommended in Kilkenny!

When you read excellent you probably think the most beautiful restaurant in life with the best food and drinks ever at a reasonable price! Almost!

Excellent service, delicious food. Lovely relaxed atmosphere , everything you need for a meal out. I would have liked another choice of fish dish, but it is a steakhouse, my brother had the fillet steak and it was amazing.

We visited on a busy Saturday night and when in Kilkenny you expect to see a few hen and stag parties. When you take up the menu i was disspointed to see a slightly different menu to the menu advertised online and the prices changed some up and some down in Price. They could do with a proof reader for... More
