This was our third year having Christmas lunch in Cistin Eile and as per usual we (party of 16) all enjoyed our meals, food is excellent- make sure to try the slow cooked Beef if available when you visit. Service is good & staff are very friendly. Can't wait to go back there again.

Found this place by accident while shopping in Wexford town. From the outside and even when you go in it does not look very exciting. However, from the staff working there you get a sense of intensity and passion for the food. We just wanted a quick small lunch and what we got was just that but every thing was... More

My wife and I frequently have lunch in the Cistin Eile. We are delighted with the originality and inventiveness shown by the chef, Warren Gillen. The menu includes many standards of Irish cuisine but Warren reinvents them all over again and turns them into something you would be proud to serve up to anyone. Great value for money and superb...

Have been for lunch several times over the past few years and the food is excellent! I've been through the menu several times and have settled on two favourite dishes, which are the Lemon Sole and Chicken Caesar Salad. They have regular specials to tempt you too. The service is very warm and friendly, especially the young dark haired girl,... More

Having seen the fantastic reviews for Cistion Eile we drove all the way from Kinsale (3.5 hours) to Wexford thinking we had booked a table for our last day in Ireland, and were SOOOO disappointed to learn on arrival that the booking had never been received - not the fault of the restaurant but an online booking website which they...
