I have been to KilKenny several times and I am always eager to go back to my favorite restaurant. Lovely little restaurant tucked away near the water. The early bird is great value, excellent food. I recently tried other dishes on the regular menu and they were fabulous. On my last trip my husband and I went 3 times, every... More

Value is outstanding. Two course early bird for €10. Sure you couldn't go wrong. Waitress was nice and friendly. Pasta dish I ordered had loads of it which was just delicious. I will be back again. Even menu looks great even tho I didn't have it so next time I'm down I'll be in to try it out

My girlfriend and I have been there on a number of occasions just because of the value. The hospitality is not very good to be honest. Every time we went to the restaurant it was for early bird. We normally prefer to book in advance just to make sure we have a table inside the restaurant (they also have tables... More

This is one of my favourite places in town. However the last two times I have been there the place has been busy and there was only one waiter working. He seemed very under pressure and this took away from enjoying the meal.

The waiter, I think his name was Flori, was great! Very funny, helpful and friendly. Food was excellent, the pizza was amazing! We visited a couple of times during our stay in Kilkenny. I love my girlfriend so much, she brought me to Kilkenny as a birthday present and it was best time ever. It was just a great experience... More

This place is good if you're loooking for something cheap and cheerful. Early bird is great value. Certainly not the best food in Kilkenny but I've always been happy with what I've got and for the price, you can't go wrong.

Ate here for the early bird menu of 2 courses for €10.95. The restaurant is advertised as Italian but the upstairs, where we were seated was decorated as if it was a North African casbah along with Christmas lights that had not been removed. It was August. Up another flight of stairs, decorated in mexican style, are the toilets (shockingly... More

After going here on a number of occasions I've meet a particular man who just doesn't understand what hospitality is. I come from a hospitality background myself and know what good service is this man does not ever deliver. I went with my girlfriend to have a meal at 6.30 on a monday evening we didn't book as we just... More

Gave it a try and surely I will give up on finding good Mexican food in Ireland someday soon. Very unfriendly waitress who acted as if we were unconvenience to her by walking in. And we were the only table. Should have been a cue to us. Husband had the chicken burrito and thought it was okay. I had the... More

Food is bad and terrible staff, we had to argue with the worker to allow us to buy from here because they had a booking when the place was empty. never again will I be coming to this place avoid at all costs!
