Fantastic restaurant

We popped in here for lunch on a Saturday and I think we arrived just in the nick of time. Lunch was fantastic and really very good value. This was my second visit and the food is amazing- I will definitely be back and making a reservation next time just to be sure!

Very good traditional food with a twist, well cooked and attentive service. Let down by location but well worth a shot especially for lunch, check that in advance so as not to be disappointed.

I've been to Cistin Eile a few times for lunch. The menu is full of variety, has lots of locally sourced ingredients and is reasonably priced. The corned beef sandwich is particularly nice. The premise itself is rather small but nicely decorated and the service is very good. Booking is advisable.

Fabulous restaurant. Delicious food and excellent service. Have dined here on numerous occasions - actually everytime I come home to Wexford. Menu never ceases to amaze ! Great selection to choose from and always something new to try. Food very well cooked and presented. Traditional food with a modern twist. Locally sourced too. Highly recommended, looking forward to next visit.

We were here at the end of Oct during the Opera festival. The staff were aware we were trying to make a show after dinner so there were no delays. All the ingredients are fresh and locally sourced. The menu had Irish themed dishes but always with a surprising delicious twist. The host was very attentive making sure everyone was... More
