Stopped in for lunch. The place was busy but seemed to be a nice flow. We were seated straight away but that's when the service ended! 15 minutes to take our order. There wasn't even knifes & forks on the table. Only half the order came out, yet we both ordered the same thing. I can't fault the food it... More

Ate here recently on shopping trip with my mam. We were having a late lunch/early dinner. Place was lovely inside-modern contempory setting. Nice variety on menu to suit most, I had burger and wedges and mam had curry and rice, both were yummy, my portion looked huge, big homemade burger, dressed salad and bowl of large wedges... burger and salad...

i was a little curious about this option but have to say it was done very well. Nice touch. Big plate of food. Salad was amazing. Chips average.

Having eaten here once before, we decided to visit for a quick spot of lunch whilst shopping. I ordered a curry with half rice and half fries as I had ordered last time we visited - but the rather brusque waitress (a heavy set lady in her early thirties who may have been a supervisor as she wasn't wearing the...

Reheated burgers, The beef burger was as if it were produced by Bord na Mona and then it was cut in two gods sake - is this how you gauge the cooking of a burger, slice in it half, do you do the same with steaks? The chicken burger was scorched almost to charcoal at the edges, dry as card... More

We had 1 waitress give us our cutlery at the table , which hadn,t even been wiped... More

My sisters got some lovely lunches but when mine came out on a big oval plate , it looked lovely but when I held the plate it was covered in mashed potatoe. I was disgusted and asked for this to be changed.... More

I took my four and a half year old out on Saturday for a fun day in Kilkenny. We started with a nice swim in the watershed. Afterwards we were hungry and I asked her where we would go to eat.... Assuming I'd have to endure mcdonalds! But low and behold she asked to go to the courtyard grill in... More

Normally I tend to avoid steakhouses in malls as in my experience they aren't as good as places that are away from a mall however I must say that this establishment blew that theory out of the water. The service was impeccable from arrival until we left and the meal was nothing short of great. Soup was freshly made and... More
