This is a great value restaurant. I had the early bird menu. Minestrone soup to start followed by chicken Burrito. Each course came piping hot and absolutely delicious. I highly recommend it. The waiter was a real gentleman too!

Good value, simple food, lots of the items seem pre prepared or bought in, I wouldnt think you would class the food as gourmet or highend, but for the early bird price its a good feed at a reasonable price, I woukdnt pay any more for the quality though. Cheap and cheerful, ideal for an after work catchup.

I've been here a few times for the early bird. Each time I've encountered the manager, who clearly resents the fact that you've come into his restaurant. Obnoxious at times. Food is nice. It's not five star but it's relatively cheap and does the job. Not overly pushed about going back due to abysmal customer service.

My husband and I were a bit unsure about this restaurant from the outside. It is an Italian\Mexican restaurant, which seems an odd combination. However, we both saw options that we would eat on the menu, the prices were very reasonable and it looked quite cosy inside, so we decided to give it a try. We both ordered pasta dishes.... More

We had a wonderful lunch here. We ordered from the two course early bird menu (€10) which had a nice selection, something for everyone. The food was great, very reasonably priced and the service was excellent. The waiter was a very friendly gentleman who welcomed us warmly and took good care of us. We look forward to returning!

My wife and I ate here. Menu choice is reasonable but food was very bland and tasteless. Very few in here on night we ate. Plenty of cheap dishes but I guess you get what you pay for. Even though it was very quiet service was just ok. Wouldn't rush back.

I have been to KilKenny several times and I am always eager to go back to my favorite restaurant. Lovely little restaurant tucked away near the water. The early bird is great value, excellent food. I recently tried other dishes on the regular menu and they were fabulous. On my last trip my husband and I went 3 times, every... More

Value is outstanding. Two course early bird for €10. Sure you couldn't go wrong. Waitress was nice and friendly. Pasta dish I ordered had loads of it which was just delicious. I will be back again. Even menu looks great even tho I didn't have it so next time I'm down I'll be in to try it out

My girlfriend and I have been there on a number of occasions just because of the value. The hospitality is not very good to be honest. Every time we went to the restaurant it was for early bird. We normally prefer to book in advance just to make sure we have a table inside the restaurant (they also have tables... More

This is one of my favourite places in town. However the last two times I have been there the place has been busy and there was only one waiter working. He seemed very under pressure and this took away from enjoying the meal.
