August 20th 2016. Being rather hungry after spending a day out in Carlow Town and its environs my wife & I found this gem of a restaurant in Tullow, Co. Carlow. First off we were made feel welcome by the waitress & the chef who's kitchen is visible for all to see; we like that. We both ordered the evening... More

Pasta, chicken, fish and steak served with fresh veg.and chips. I had medium rare steak cooked to perfection and everyone was delighted with their selection. The price was reasonable... More

Just visited the Riverbank for a meal there was 12 of us for dinner, we booked quite late which was no problem. The meal did not disappoint us from starter to dessert it was excellent. I would highly recommend it to visitors. It was great value for money.

This restaurant certainly didn't live up to our expectations since it was recommended by the hotel we were staying in and the previous reviews on here. We arrived about 7.30 and the restaurant was fairly empty abs we were taken up stairs to a table by a window, one other table was occupied. Like a previous poster we saw the... More

We were staying at the lodges in Mount Wolseley and decided to try this highly recommended restaurant to celebrate my daughter's 26th birthday. We really enjoyed the layout, upstairs, a lovely setting, by the window. Lovely menu, all of the food was very good.

Had excellent meal here this evening. The fish and chicken dishes were delicious and staff were excellent. The chef checking with us on how we wanted our meal prepared was an excellent touch. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

I have been here on numerous occasions for lunches and dinners. Each time had been lovely the food was great and so was the service. The chef comes out to see how your meal is which is lovely and everyone is very friendly. Will definitely be visiting again and would recommend trying this hidden gem 😍

We arrived just at last orders and were warmly greeted by staff with the lovely chef even coming over to chat. Food was excellent, a real little gem. I had fish cakes to start and lamb shank for mains, (lamb fell off the bone and melted in your mouth). My hubby had food envy but really enjoyed his meal too,... More
