We stopped into this restaurant after visiting the Kilkenny Castle. The food was good, but nothing special. The soup of the day was nice. We also ordered the castle burger (chicken burger), which was satisfying. We sat in the upper section, since the lower section was full. It looked like a team had gathered to watch a game. Smoke seemed to make its way to the upper level from where people were smoking outside - which wasn't very pleasant, but not the end of the world. It was family friendly, as there were a couple families in the upper section with us. Overall, it was decent food for a decent value.
