“Amazing! Would definitely recommend!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Booked last minute, no problem to squeeze us in. Said it would be a table at the back which turned out to be lovely, spacious and romantic with beautiful scenery and lights. Food was served quickly - you can see the kitchen for yourself upstairs and tell it's mostly cooked fresh. Set menu for €49 is well worth it. 5
Tapas dishes between 2, plus a bottle of wine and 2 deserts has left me feeling rather full (& I can eat a lot). Staff ever so friendly and full of conversation. Loved it :D

“Excellent experience and very good food! ”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

We visited early on a Saturday evening and so had no problem with the service, unlike some recent reviewers. The selection of tapas that we chose were freshly prepared and flavoursome - the patatas bravas had a great sauce and the hummus was GREAT :-) . During our trip we had also been to Lautrec which was also good, but The Grapevine beat it hands down.

“Really good Tapas bar!”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Visited this Tapas bar last weekend in Kilkenny and we were delighted we stopped in!

They have a special of 5 tapas, 2 deserts and a bottle of house red for 49euro from Sunday to Thursday! Be sure not to miss out on this as it is great value!

There is a great selection including some unusual tapas dishes such as humous and spiced lamb with couscous!

Everything we tasted was delicious and they serve food until 10pm!
