I have been to Café le Chéile three times now and have to say it is a great place to get a taste of good home-style and healthy cooking. I was impressed the first time I went there. The atmosphere in the café is very pleasant. The tables are well laid out, everything looks bright and cheerful, and you have a lovely view of the Basilica. The food is absolutely delicious and there is a wide range of dishes - ranging from very tasty salads to baked potatoes to delicious roasts. The waitresses take your order at your table and they are all very friendly. I have to mention that the desserts are also delicious. Café le Chéile also has a wine license so you can have a glass of wine with your meal as well. I can highly recommend this restaurant to all those visiting Knock. The word "Café" is an understatement as this is really a great restaurant.

Love this restaurant and keep coming back to it. We visit Knock regularly and now we have found this jewel we would make this a regular haunt. The staff are fantastic - so welcoming and personable.... they remember you and make you feel important.. They really go that extra mile to meet your needs. We asked about the statue that was adjacent to the cafe and whilst no -0ne knew who it was - the staff did their best to supply the relevant history. Staff were also fab at reccommending a varriety of coach/bus trips etc. FAB! 5 stars

Seafood chowder was good, quite a big portion with proper salmon in it served with Irish brea. We also had the chicken wrap, cheese toast and fried mushroom with garlic. Probably the nicest looking cafe in Knock and very pleased we came here!

A friend and I were in Knock recently and were directed to this cafe. It was just coming up to lunch time so it was starting to get busy. The menus were on the tables so we were ready to order when our waitress arrived. As we had just driven nonstop from Cork, we were in dire need of a coffee, which arrived promptly and was good. We both ordered the Lassagne which came with chips and salad. The salad was crisp and fresh, the chips and Lassagne were piping hot. The Lassagne was very, very good.
A lovely meal in a bright, airy, friendly restaurant with very pleasant and helpful staff. Our lovely meal with coffee came to less than €12 each. How is that for value!!!
To top it all off, there was a free shuttle bus to bring us back up tp the Shrine.
This Cafe le Cheile is a real oasis in the world of Deep Fried Food that we encountered in the area before we were fortunate enough to be pointed in the right direction.
