We had a beautiful meal here recently on a weekend away in Kilkenny-despite being a Tuesday evening the dining room was busy and had a nice atmosphere.

We stayed at the Zuni hotel and arrived late. Decided to try the restaurant and was a positive surprise. The staff was very friendly. The menu was not huge but the quality of the food was good. The wine menu is not as good as the food but is also ok.

This restaurant is superb in every aspect. The bar that greets you when you arrive is warm and cosy. The staff are polite and helpful. Really enjoyed the experience here. The food is delicious and the ambience is wonderful. Had a couple of drinks in the bar afterwards would highly recommend.

Took my elderly mum for lunch to meet my sister who only had 1 hr break. Mum struggled to find something as menu was a bit fancy for her taste but she enjoyed her cured salmon. Menu is definitely not run of the mill lunch menu (no sandwiches or wraps) and for me made a pleasant & interesting change. However... More
