it's been some time since I last ate here. Went recently with a friend. We both enjoyed our starters- I had the goat's cheese and my friend had the smoked mackerel. Both were delicious. I chose the 10 hour braided topside of beef sourced from a local butcher and my friend had the plaice which was the fish of the... More

I eat in C.Eile regularly and it is ALWAYS great grub. The cooks have a knack of delivering a special zing to their food just have a flair for adding something special to delight the palate! Not to be missed! Paddy Walsh

Visited this restaurant last night, and I'm so glad I did! Cannot fault it. Everything ran smoothly, the service was excellent, we weren't waiting too long between courses, the food was the perfect temperature when it arrived and it all tasted gorgeous! Very reasonably priced too. We were so impressed, I understand why this restaurant is number 1 in Wexford.... More

My husband and I try to get to Cistin Eile every time we are in Wexford visiting family. A few years since we have been, it did not disappoint! Fresh and local produce and meat, good portion sizes and reasonable prices ensure a great meal every time. Nice atmosphere too.

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
