We love catalpa and come here every few months for special occasions. We usually get a three course meal with a bottle of wine and on average it works out at about 85 euro. The food is always beautiful and lovely service from staff. Portions are a nice size and wine in a cooler. Lovely ambience, nice, romantic and cosy.... More

Wrote a 2 star review on Catalpa before and only went back this time as my son wanted Italian and Galileo's was booked up. Same experience as many of the "poor to average" reviews here. The food was nice although portions were very small and we left still feeling hungry despite having a starter and main! However the worst part... More

Lovely restaurant situated in the middle of town. The decor reminds me of a small little restaurant in France. The food is exquisite and menu has plenty to choose from. Ber and his staff are lovely and very helpful. Would highly recommend Catalpa

Eating on my own again whilst travelling for business. Hard to find somewhere decent to eat in this town but thankfully found this lovely restaurant. It has old world charm. Chopped red clay tiles on the floor, basement type setting but don't let that put you off. Lovely menu and the food and wine quality was better than I could... More

We had a lovely evening here. The restaurant itself is fairly small but that adds to the ambience. The host was charming and engaging. The food was extremely enjoyable... Minestrone soup was one of the best I have tried ... Definitely make this one of the places to stop off and eat if you are in Clonmel,
