Excellent Quality at very reasonable prices

This is the best value, fresh cooked lunch in Wexford. Great service, friendly and attentive staff. We have been once a week for the past four weeks and it has always been an excellent meal.

I love this restaurant. The fish is so fresh, the starters are comprised very interesting food combinations. 25€ early evening menu is unbeatable value. Can't wait to go back again, Thank you Cistin Eile!

Can only comment on lunch which was exactly what were looking for. We ordered a goats cheese salad, a warm chicken sandwich & home made chips. All delicious. Good quality and well prepared. Good value menu. Only dropping down from 5 to 4 because it was very busy and one more Waiter would have helped relax the service a bit.

The restaurant was recommended to us by locals we met in a pub in Wexford and we highly recommend it! The food was among the best we've ever had and the service was good also.

This is one of the nicest restaurants we have come across in Ireland. Fabulous food at very reasonable prices. The owner/chef is doing a brilliant job at bringing fine dining to ordinary folk

A small restaurant with a great chef and lovely staff. Portions are big, local fresh produce. Well worth a visit

Each time I visit it just gets better. The menu, though small, is fabulous. Ingredients are sourced locally and it really shows in the end product. Everything is just bursting with flavour and tastes divine. Service is great and prices are reasonable.

This restaurant in the heart of Wexford Town is a gem. The food is based on wonderful Irish produce and cooked to perfection. Service is great. The only drawback is that it can get very busy at lunchtimes so better to book if possible. You won't be disappointed.
