I agree with the other positive reviews. The chef owner is a food dude. His cooking is matched by the sublime professionalism of the front of house. They point out their signature dishes but there is no need, it's all good. A refreshing unassuming relaxed vibe about the place. Congratulations to all the crew.

We had dinner. Only option is 3 courses for €29. Food is fabulous. Service is good. Atmosphere is pleasant but a bit corridor-like in places. You will always need a booking. (Have not been there often, but am told the menu does not change much.)

This is a real find. I was there at lunchtime and had bacon and cabbage cistin eile style. It certainly was just that. I never had bacon and cabbage that was so good. Very reasonable too. Relaxed and friendly.

Booked a table here based on Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. My partner had the pork belly and I had the 10 hour beef. Both were really delicious. The service was very good and quick without being intrusive. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very cosy and relaxed. A number of people were turned away as they had... More

I'm a vegan and when I asked the waiter if there was anything I could have - he went through the set menu - asked if I could have the goat's cheese (obviously not)- he advised I could have the side dishes - a bowl of broccoli and a portion of chips - there was no offer of "oh I'll... More

I have been to Cistin Eile on several occasions, only for lunch and have always enjoyed the food, it is different and very reasonably priced.

A perfect little spot with exceptional food. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very welcoming waiter and the service which followed was equally great. The food was simply to perfection and I would highly recommend to any foodie.

I live abroad but each time I'm at home I ensure to visit Cistin Eile. This is my favourite restaurant in Wexford as the quality of food is 10/10. Food is excellent, prices are reasonable and the staff are very nice. I have only ever been here for lunch and can highly recommend the soups and chicken salad sandwich. I... More
