Was so looking forward to eating here as we had been here years ago and the food was fab. However on this instance the food was so bad I won't be going back again. I had a stir fry and the flavours in the sauce were so strong I couldn't taste the flavours from the prawns. Also it was just... More

Recently went to Ripleys for dinner and it was great. Local to Kilkenny and have never been! The nacho's are delish will definitely have them again. The only downside is the place could do with a good clean, very dusty looking.

It does exactly what it says on the tin - steak. Good food. Pleasant staff and not too pricey. I had nachos for starters. The portion was huge.

Went to Ripleys when we were in Kilkenny. It was a nice change to go to a restaurant and have a good steak. The atmosphere and service were very good and the steak, salad and wine selection were very nice. We had a seat that overlooked a busy pedestrian avenue so there was some people watching to go along with... More

Went out for a small family dinner on a Saturday night. Love steak so found this place on trip advisor. Service was excellent and the food was great. Lovely location especially if you sit by the window. Would visit again. Oh and the wine was awesome.

The restaurant itself was very comfortable and had a really relaxed atmosphere to it. The menu had such a wide variety of choice. The food was delicious! I had nachos for a starter and steak for my main and my steak was cooked perfect. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Overall I will definitely be back again!

The staff were amazing , one waitress , I'm sorry I didn't get her name , has been working there for I think 9 years now and she is so pleasant. Our meals were perfect ..
