Description: The Fig Tree Restaurant is built around an ethos of freshly prepared food sourced from local, Irish ingredients, in a relaxed casual dining setting. All of our food is prepared in our kitchen from scratch from our local minced beef for our burgers to our hand crafted cakes and pastries using the finest grains from the local granary. Our coffee is ethically sourced and selected and roasted to our own requirements, offering you the perfect cup every time. To compliment our dishes we also serve O' Hara's Irish Craft Beers and house red and white wine. We place particular emphasis on our service and friendly customer relations, ensuring every guest enjoys their visit. For those with celiac dietary requirements, we provide a range of gluten free options, both savoury and sweet. Our promise is fresh, hand prepared food in a comfortable setting. Looking forward to your visit. Yours, Chef Prop. Thomas Clarke.

The best place in Kilkenny for home made brown bread and buns. Their chocolate biscuit cake is excellent. All are available to take away.

I was visiting Kilkenny a few weeks ago while travelling through Ireland with my wife and our toddler.
We stopped at The Fig Tree where we found good, reasonably priced food. Staff was corteous and friendly, and we apreciated that a lot (finding a restaurant that will accept a toddler can be difficult sometimes!)
Also, I forgot my bag in the restaurant and the manager was happy to mail it back to me to Dublin, and he insisted he didn't want a dime for it!
Truly an excellent experience for us.

Lovely wee place don't see why it has such a bad score. Great friendly thoughtful service. Breakfast panini was delicious and coffee and scone were great. Don't skip it because of its rating.

This is a lovely wee place right in the town centre - all home made food and also suitable for those with dietary requirements - portion size of cakes is amazing - need to walk it off afterwards
