“Tastes to tantalise.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Found this restaurant quite by accident - it's tucked away up on the first floor at the corner of The Parade, with a good view right up as far as Kilkenny Castle. Menu and wine list are a bit limited, but what the menu lacked, it was more than made up for in the quality and quantity of food. Service was very good and staff absolutely charming. The restaurant was buzzing with diners, and it's not surprising considering the beautiful meals they dish up. Everything was cooked to perfection and food presentation was a work of art in itself. If you intend visiting Kilkenny and are a fan of Chinese food, Swans is a must for you.
