Top Class Service and "Masterchef" Food

The restaurant was packed on Saturday but was very well organised with no shortage of staff and every one seemed to flying around. The food was top class and all our family were very impressed with taste, quality, service, staff friendliness and it was also good value for money. We will visit again.

What a great little hideaway. From the outside it just looks like a courtyard with patio furniture and small restaurant space but inside it's quite large with plenty of space and atmosphere. The tables are all different shapes and sizes of older furniture as are the chairs but it works well. The food is delicious with some unusual combinations. Good... More

We dined here on Saturday night as a family. The guy who answered the phone to take the booking was more than helpful in suggesting where we eat with the kids( there is a tapas area also ) we dined in the main area. The kids menu was extensive and had lots of options and reasonably priced. As we dined... More

Tasty fresh Irish food in a cosy location. I had the cod and it was really beautifully done! Also tried a local Wexford pale ale which I'd never tried before which was great!

On a visit to Wexford looking for a casual dining experience read the reviews on the Yard and must say we were not disappointed. It's a very informal dining space with an eclectic range of furniture and a nice welcome from the servers. The kitchen looked well organised and clean so good first impression. The food did not disappoint either... More

the lonely planet recommended this place and it didn't disappoint. The setting is really pretty, the food was fantastic and not too pricey. Best of all was the service - I asked for my dessert 'to go' and then left the restaurant without it..had forgotten about it until the waiter showed up in the pub we were in to deliver... More

We had a voucher as a Christmas present, and so we finally used it on Saturday 2nd May. We thankfully made a reservation for the early bird menu. Staff were fantastic, and the restaurant was so busy and lively. We loved the different styles of tables, and we were very well attended to for our evening. Food was excellent.. We... More

Ate here last weekend as huge group. The service was brilliant despite the fact the restaurant was very busy and our party was quiet loud and boisterous. The food was beautiful and waiting staff are a credit to their employers. Would not hesitate to visit again for the varied menu and generous portions.

As a foodies we were totally happy to find this restaurant. Among the restaurants serving everything fried as the chips and defrost fried whatever this restaurant stands for a modern progressive concept. We sat next to the open kitchen window where we could see the chef's final checking. Food was totally delicious and artistic. I wasn't really happy with the... More
