The early bird offers diners great value. The tapas are well crafted and very tasty. The interior design and room layout creates a relaxed, cosy atmosphere. The waiter was very helpful also. All in all, a very good experience and well recommended.

By far one of my favorite places to eat in Kilkenny. Lovely decor, friendly and knowledgeable staff. The food is fantastic, but can get a bit pricy if you are eating outside of the early bird menu. If you decide to eat here, you have to try their hummus with melba toast. You will not be dissapointed. Some other stand-out... More

We were here on a busy Saturday night, but the staff were excellent throughout. The food was tasty, with nice size portions for tapas. Only suggestion for improvement would be a couple of more vegetable-based choices. Those we had were delicious - the black pudding was a particular highlight. At the end of the night we realised there were a... More

I had already been in this nice tapas bar few years ago and it never disappoints me. We were a group of friends for a hen party and we enjoyed having our lunch there, the day after the party. The only thing I would say was that at the beginning we didn't feel very welcomed. The guy probably was a... More

We had a quick bottle of wine at this lovely and romantic Wine & Tapas Bar! The tapas were delicious and unique. We had the halloumi cheese tapas and it was incredible!

We came here this week for my Birthday Dinner. It was our first time in a Tapas bar, so didn't know what to expect. The waitress kindly told us how it worked, showed us the various options on the vast menu, told us of the Early Bird menu offers & showed us to our table which was located toward the... More

Staff were very nice and great at their jobs which wasn't easy as place was packed! Food is really tasty,maybe a little expensive for tapas but nice all the same,price of alcohol is another thing,...
