Scrumptious food & superb value for money

The best 3 course meal I've had for under €30! The choices on the menu vary daily depending on the fresh local market selection. I was informed that the only dish that stays constant on the menu is the slow roasted beef for main. Staff were informative & friendly. All 12 of our party were... read more

We've been at cistin eile a few times now and have never got a bad mouthful of food. Very reasonable for the quality, taste and presentation of what you get. Anyone who hasn't tried the 10 hour beef is missing out on one of the tastiest plates of food I have ever had. The restaurant itself isn't high end but... More

Visited Cistin Eile 25th May, what a delight, service was friendly, quick and efficient but the food was to die for. I had the deepfried goats cheese with a sweet chutney on a bed of beetroot slaw and lettuce with dressings and chips. Beautiful and my friend had the Wexford Rissoles which she absolutely adored but more than anything really... More

Amazing food and service. Great value for money, with a set menu of two courses for €25 and 3 for €29. It has a homely and welcoming feel to it and yet had some of the best food I've had all year.

Went here for dinner on a Wednesday night. There was a good crowd in the restaurant. I had the goats cheese with beetroot for a starter, which was amazing followed by the hake, again amazing. I could not fault the service, quality of the food or the price. I would return here that's for sure.

My favourite place to go for lunch in Wexford. Good portions, the menu is always different based on what is in season which shows that they use the freshest ingredients possible. If you're in Wexford - go, and make sure to order a side of herb bread!

My boyfriend took me for a surprise visit to Wexford and we had a lovely lunch here. The market fish (hake that day) was so fresh and it was prepared perfectly! I concentrated on finishing the fish and broccoli, but I couldn't make a dent into the cubed potatoes. The portions are quite large though so be prepared to stuff... More
