Exactly as we ordered and prompt. Service was efficient and ambience... More

I ate here recently the food was ok, service was fine but lacked atmosphere. I think it could do with a face lift and a good cleaning. Couldn't fault the food, I ate the pork belly and my partner ate steak which he couldn't fault.

The restaurant is well located in the heart of Kilkenny so please be aware there is no parking for customers. The food we ordered (steaks & ribs) were quite good and portion size not bad at all. Sides are a little bit greasy and steaks were cooked differently than ordered in my opinion (mine was med rare when I asked... More

Arrived for Sunday Lunch. We would usually visit for an early bird but decided to go for Sunday lunch instead. Very disappointed. Restaurant was not packed. Not a great selection on Sunday lunch menu. We asked for something off the early bird menu and the waitress refused. We asked a second time and she abruptly refused. So we got up... More

My boyfriend and I came here on our last night in Kilkenny, and had such a lovely night! I made a reservation a couple hours before we arrived, and they put us in the window seat. Servings were so huge, but neither of us were complaining! I had the chicken burger, and he had steak fajitas, and they were both... More

Found the menu a bit basic, but having said that the food was excellent. Was disappointed on my second visit,several months later to find the menu was still the same, food was still excellent but would like to see some "specials" to make the menu more inviting.

This has to be one of the best places I have been to. The food is out of this world and I would highly recommend it to any steak lovers. It is good value for what you get and there are early bird deals on as well. Parking can be difficult but there are street parking nearby. Staff are lovely... More
