We popped in for a quick lunch. Nice little cafe. Very quick service and helpful staff but the chicken club paying just lacked some exitement. It was a bit bland. Chips were nice though. Would need to go back and sample something else to make sure. Worth it just for the quick service if you're in a hurry

We were a party of 7 looking for cheerful lunch suitable for fussy children and discerning adults. This restaurant looked good from the outside. When we went in we were directed to the third floor. Athletic waiters put two tables together for us. Everyone found something on the menu to suite their palette. Service was good. Waiters were very athletic.... More

We visited Kilkenny and once there it was already time to have lunch and we found this lovely bistrot on our way. I asked for vegan options beyond the only one clearly stated on the menu and they checked for me if the burger contained eggs or dairy products and it didn't so I got a burger with wedges and...

This was the first place my family ate in Ireland. We had a long day and a half of travel and were starving. So glad we stopped here. The food was very good and the service was great. The staff gave my 13 month old plenty of attention (which she loved). My husband and I agree this was the best... More

Visited this lovely little restaurant with a friend for lunch, it was really really busy but we were greeted by a waiter and handed menus and told there were more tables upstairs, service was very good and quick which I was surprised at as it was so busy, the food was delicious and they use their own homemade salad dressing...

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.
