Myself and my wife ate here. We both agreed it was a perfect dining experience and could find no faults. The food was outstanding, matched only the service of staff and decor of the restaurant. A must visit when I Kilkenny.

We went on a Friday night and had no trouble getting a table. The complimentary bread and our meals were delicious. Service was good also. They have a fair range of wines by the glass and an excellent range of Irish whiskies at fair prices.

We dropped in for drinks after dinner on a Saturday night. The bar was quite full, but not so full as to not find seats. Service is fast and fun. It's a popular place with a great vibe.
