Cannot recommend it enough! Reserved a table for my boyfriends birthday. It was a great night, the food was superb and the service was excellent. The waitress even had some fun with our friends who are annoyingly picky eaters!!

We had been up for about 38 hours when we finally stumbled in to eat, and we had a moment when we didn't feel like fanny-pack tourists. Great food, nice atmosphere, good service. Loved the lamb dish I ordered with the Spanish wine.

I have a wonderful night out with my husband recently. The food was really mouthwatering. My husband is coeliac and this was not problem at all. The waitress even brought him, his own butter dish. We had a delightful meal. It was very reasonable. I will return to Kirbys again soon.
