My family and I went here on a recommendation and were not disappointed. It was delicious and the service was great. The restaurant was jam-packed but they fit us in. Make a reservation if you can. Best meal in Kilkenny.

Good, fresh food. We ate from the early bird menu as well as the normal menu. Both were delicious and good value. Expect 25-30 euro per person. I was somewhat amused by the coffee cups though. Right handed people only?
