Stopped here for a quick bite to eat with the kids (4 & 7), ended up paying over 50€ (not including drinks) for the food.

Regular lunch and dinner spot in town. Burgers are amazing, but great menu choices all around so something for everyone.

Service was quick and efficient. Food was very good, even if a little overcooked. The choice was large enough and we apreciated averything except desert (the cheesecake was tasteless with a sourcream texture). Very good lunch.

I had the pleasure of dining in the Marble City bar and restaurant today and I must say that I had forgotten that such beautiful food is available in Kilkenny. The menu is comprehensive and is very reasonably priced. I will be back that is for sure.

Having just arrived in Kilkenny we popped into Marble city bar to grab a quick bite. The tea coffee and cake were all good, and the place was warm and welcoming on a cold damp January afternoon.

This is some of the best fish and chips I've had. Located right on Main Street. Really cool restaurant but it's very busy.

Place looked nice and prices were higher than average. But the food was awful. I ordered ceasar salad, but the chicken was so bad that I couldn't eat all of it. For my surprise, salad also included chips, they tasted very bad too. Wine was ok.

Great service went there for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. The surrounds are great and will certainly go back. The decor is worth seeing.
