“Family friendly and fantastic food in a lovely setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

We were there on the bank holiday Monday and arrived at 12.30 and got a table for 2 adults and 3 children. We got a high cair for our 2 year old but gave it up to another couple as there child was younger and they needed it more. As we enjoyed our meal it became quite apparent why high chairs were at a premium as this restaurant does not charge for kids pre 6.30 if there parents are ordering off the main menu....which is a very nice gesture in these present times. All in all we had a very pleasant experience, fabulous food ,friendly staff in a very cosy environment ...will definitely be back again

“Another cracker of a meal, thanks for looking after us lads.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Arrived on a fine Fri eve, parking took a little while but perseverance paid off. Lovely bar section to grab a leisurely drink beforehand. Then had the works. Special was Mussels in a thai broth...v tasty indeed. Followed up with a nicely executed Duck dish.Good finish, flavours and very good value for what it was. Bill including wine about 30 a head and we stayed till close sipping on the wine recommended by our entertaining and charming host Paraic. Will definitely be back, worth a detour.

“Lunch at Hartes in Kildare town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Normally, I am wary of any restaurant that has 'gastro' in it's title, however Harte's has earned all of its titles. On a rainy Saturday lunchtime, I had a sumptuous lunch that left me gushing all the way through my dinner that evening! I chose one of the blackboard specials, which included an ever so tender braised beef on a brown bread with a little pear chutney and a coating of melted Gubbeen cheese, accompanied by salad and deep-fried skins. It was a perfectly balanced meal! My boyfriend was equally satisfied with his pork neck. Décor is dark elegance with browns and creams and deep woods. Staff are pleasant and efficient. It is not cheap there but it is very good value for the quality of the food. Best dining experience I have this year.

“Great Food, Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The food here is so tasty and great value. We really liked the way the dishes were served which was pretty different & imaginative. My husband loved the steak. The manager was very friendly & charming. It's also pretty child friendly. Highly recommended for a family.
