Party of six. No one was really happy with their meal. The Prawn and Lobster Ravioli was really disappointing. It was chopped up too finely and didnt even taste of fish. Cheese board was pathetic. The service was very attentive.

Large portions of everything (although no Chianti). Mussels were fantastic! Cordon Bleu was very good as well.

This is a hidden gem in one of the "slips" in Kilkenny. Don't be put off by the dark exterior, inside is a beautiful and ancient room where the staff are friendly and the food excellent. The lunch special at just under 10 euro is great value. Don't miss it!

I was working as a waitress there and the food was under cooked, the chef was slow and constantly forgot orders. I was over worked with 14 tables to myself with no experience. The management are deceivingly polite, but if you have any problems they quickly turn nasty. 90% of the customers walked out because of poor service. One couple... More

I had read reviews on here, ignored the negative ones, as I always like to make my own mind up, and wanted to try here. My husband & myself were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and were having a weekend in Kilkenny so it was the ideal time to have a romantic Italian meal. We booked for Saturday night and...

Frankly there are much better restaurants in Kilkenny. The food is good and well priced but the management have a cynical attitude to customers.
