“simply wonderful”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

we ate here last night at the last minute rather than wondering around kilkenny in the rain. the staff were more than helpful and placed the order for the kids first which is always a bonus when you have hungry kids with you. our turkish waiter recommended the most wonderful wine to compliment a stunningly cooked food worthy of any contempory restaurant. overall we could not say a bad word. as we were staying in the hotel we ate breakfast also and whilst it was nothing out of the ordinary it provided more than enough choice i think.would i eat here again - yes i would.

“Convenient watering hole”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

This is located on Patrick's street and is well located. The only down side is that the staff may be a little slow in relation to service so to save time go to the bar to order don't wait for them to come to you, unless you have time to spare.

“Brilliant restaurant, will be back again”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

I went to this restaurant after seeing some of the great reviews about the restaurant which i can gladly say were spot on. The food was top quality, i have never seen meals with presentation or taste like that before. Im sure the chefs have put a lot of effort into these meals. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and i found the service to be very fast and to my liking. I will definetly be back to this restaurant again and may even come to stay in the Pembroke Hotel which is joined to the restaurant and also has recieved excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. I can't wait for my next meal at Stathams Bar and Grill.

“Calm atmosphere, wonderful staff and great food”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

We had booked a dinner, bed & breakfast package in the Pembroke Hotel for a girls night away. The dining room was very quiet (which was to be expected on the night on a 6 Nations match) so the staff couldn't do enough to make sure we had a great meal.

We dined from the set menu which catered for all tastes. The food was beautifully presented and very well cooked. Even the coffee at the end was excellent... We'll be back
