Visited sha-roe last Friday and was blown away. Amazing food which is clearly prepared fresh everyday. I found it hard to choose from the menu because everything sounded so good. I went with the confit duck leg starter, seafood bouillabaisse for mains and the fig tart for dessert. Couldn't fault a single element on any dish. Simple food, yet simply... More

We went to Sha-Roe for lunch last Sunday, and what an amazing experience! The food is sublime, and just so fresh. Though the choice is 'limited' it is varied and just so tasty. Firstly we were served fresh baked rolls with creamy butter. I started with a 'prawn infused' risotto with tomato and the freshest crab on top followed by... More

One of my favourite restaurants around. Have been to Sha Roe a number of times and we are never disappointed. The service is always excellent, so friendly but not to the point of annoyance, extremely professional and the menu is varied enough to be exciting but also small enough to know that whatever dish you order will be presented and...

Went with 2 friends for a girly catch up. Fab service from start to finish. Wonderful food in lovely surroundings. Brought our drinks in by the fireplace to enjoy once our meal was over. I can't wait for my next visit.

We recently visited Sha-Roe Bistro, we had table booked for half 9 but weren't seated till 10past 10pm. We didn't mind that as we were looking forward to our meal as it was first time going there. The menu was very poor in my opinion no chicken option at all, choice very limited. The Staff were lovely. The noise in... More

Dear Monika, Thank you very much for your review. I am very happy to take on board your comments, but I wish that you had been a bit more detailed in your review as you conveniently forgot to mention some important facts. First of all, at 9:30pm, when I realised that I would be delayed in bringing your group to... More

I went to Sha-Roe for our Christmas night out with work and I have to say it was a fantastic night. On arrival we were brought into a room where we were warmly welcomed and our coats were taken. We were led into a beautiful room with a fire lighting that added physical warmth to the already experiential warmth that... More

Clonegal is a charming, picturesque village that's well worth a visit. (Nearby Huntington Castle and grounds is lovely to explore.) The cherry on top is a meal at Sha-Roe. Top quality food, reasonably priced in a lovely, cosy atmosphere.

I recently visited Sha-Roe Bistro in Clonegal, in Carlow and I must say it was one of the best experiences I have had for food and atmosphere in a restaurant this year. We had children with us as well (from 1 year to 7 years) and they could not have been better looked after. The food was exceptional, the place... More

Delighted to have found this lovely restaurant. Beautiful setting. Menu was varied and different. Very reasonably priced for the high quality food. All the food was delicious with very friendly and accommodating staff. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back!
