I had lunch in this fabulous restaurant on 14/10/2016. I have been raving to everyone who would listen since. Staff, ambience, location and food were all 10 out of 10. Without a doubt I will be back. To see the chef come out after lunch service to check with all the tables was just an additional touch of class.

Great food, wonderful staff, excellent seafood. Would be a bonus if Cistin Eile added a house Savignon Blanc to their house wines. Highly recommend, well worth a visit.

My husband and I went on holiday for the first time to Wexford because we had visited most parts of Ireland in the past. It was our 42 wedding anniversary and after a great day visiting the sites around Wexford I thought I would treat my husband to a lovely meal to finish off our day. This meal was one... More

We stumbled in to this restaurant when passing through Wexford. We had an absolutely delicious meal...one of the very best on our trip in Ireland. Wonderful service, charming decor and a great price for HUGE portions...glad we were hungry. SO happy to have found this place. We rave about it to everyone.

We were impressed by the varied menu and it took a bit of time to decide on what to go for.....finally deciding on the pulled... More

My second visit to this fine restaurant. Cannot fault it. Beautifully presented, tasty and flavoursome food. Service excellent,attentive but not intrusive. Only downside there is no a la carte, only set 3 course, so only go there if you are really hungry. You wont be disappointed.

Lovely 3 course meal for €28. Enjoyed starter of goat cheese round, crispy on outside and soft on inside on a bed of shredded beets and rocket. Main of beef, slow cooked for 10 hours. I am not a beef eater usually but this was delicious and very tender. Dessert was chocolate stout cake with salted caramel ice cream. Delicious... More

I used to work in Wexford Town and I can say this is probably the best place you can go for lunch if you have an hour to spare and you are looking for high quality food at great prices. Premises is long and narrow but they use the space well and have created a nice Irish homely feel. Service... More

try to go here once a month for Lunch, you have to book as its very busy at lunchtime and the restaurant itself isnt large. Try the Chicken Caesar Salad small or large are equally good, depends how hungry you are. All desserts are home made, the stout cake with home made ice cream is a winner. The staff are... More
