I was in cistin eile recently as I was given a voucher, I arrived 45 min before they closed for their lunch serving and they would not let me wait for a free table! So I returned the next week as I wanted to use the voucher, staff were not very friendly and food was poor especially for the price,... More

Popped in to check it out a I want to bring friends of mine from Dublin to a nice evening. Staff non to pleasant , that was not so bad it was the soup that turned me off, it was tasteless and bland the only good thing was the bowl it was served in, will not be going back.

6 of us had an amazing meal in Cistin Eile last night. The flavours were outstanding, couldn't fault a thing. I had the bluebell goats cheese with beetroot slaw, market fish with wild garlic and the trifle, I will be dreaming about it for a long time. Prompt service and great wine! Do yourself a favour and go!

I went here about ten months ago so this review might be redundant and I was dying of man flu so my taste buds where not firing on cylinders. The food was ok and the portion sizes were massive I only eat half of it. Again having the flu did not help. I would give Cistin Eile another go though.... More

Amazing corned beef sandwich and I'm not a meat eater very often. Staff always warm and helpful. Nice to see the chef out towards end of service. Best place in Wexford! The dining room is very casual and more like a coffee shop but it has character all the same!

I had the pleasure of eating in Cistin Eile during the Opera Festival and I can't sing the praises of this restaurant highly enough. We visited here three times and there is not one thing I can fault about each meal. Warren Gillen you are a treasure - keep up the great food. All the staff were fantastic too. We... More
