On arrival in Wexford we popped in for breakfast and all was good, friendly, nice food etc etc. We got a recommend from a taxi driver and came back for our evening meal. Staff were genuine, very friendly, and cheerful without being intrusive. Starters were lovely, as was the wine (Chablis). Then came the coup de grace, two surf and... More

The atmosphere, the food and the staff are all fantastic at this lovely and vibrant eatery. I have visited on numerous occasions and have never had a complaint. From started to the mains to the wonderful desserts. I will be back again soon. I couldn't recommend this place enough.

A lovely addition to The Yard. Tiny but with a nice atmosphere. Food was top class. We sampled quite a bit from the menu and enjoyed everything. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. An amazing meal for two plus a bottle of wine for 50 euro. Looking forward to a return visit very soon.

We dined at the Yard before a performance at the Wexford Festival Opera - it's one of the larger restaurants in Wexford and was very busy - but the service was quick and friendly. The portions were large and good quality.

Great staff, great risotto, great vibes would 100% eat here again and maybe next time i'll read other tripadvisor reviews properly because I was under the impression this was somewhere casual to eat, so me and my girlfriend turned up in truitsuit and trainers and everyone else was in tuxedos and dresses, felt a little under dressed :)

Having the pleasure of spending 5 days in Wexford for thee Festival, I tried several restaurants and the Yard was just amazing. In fact, I had one of the very best meals out ever and being a serial traveller with over 50 years of experience for me to write this should give the reader some idea of how much I... More

Great food and reasonable enough prices. Would highly recommend! We both had mushroom risotta to start which was delicious and just enough. For main, I had chicken and gf had cod, both plates were left clean. Side vegetables were lovely
