Description: Welcome to Lautrecs Bistro in the heart of medieval Kilkenny City. We are a stones throw from the historic Kilkenny Castle on bustling St Kieran Street, a pedestrianized haven for both food lovers and shoppers alike. Showcasing modern Irish food on our menus, we cook everything fresh to order with produce from local artisan food producers Flagstone floors from the historic Burren in Co. Clare with relaxing soft tones set the enchanting atmosphere that is Lautrecs. On two floors Lautrecs was launched in 1987 and is one of Kilkenny's longest established restaurants. Please browse our menus where we hope you will find our food interesting... Bon Appétit!

Went there on Saturday night, flying visit, not booked but we were seated anyway, ordered 4 tapas and garlic bread, very large amount of food per tapa, Asian pork was super, cod in batter even better, unfortunately we had to leave suddenly as my wife was not feeling the best. Staff very quick for us to settle bill and helpful of situation, when next in Kilkenny will deffo return,

Just enjoyed a fabulous lunch today - our second visit in less than 24 hours. Dinner last night was superb so we had to go back before leaving beautiful Kilkenny City. The tapas selection is extensive and varied - every dish we ordered was delicious. The staff are really lovely and friendly while being accommodating and professional. Very good value too so definitely ticks all the boxes for us. Sue and Berni.

Popped in here for lunch recently, two of us for a business catch up. There's a choice of Tapa's or soup/sandwich/salad. Our view would be the soup/salad/sandwich is by far the better option, with good choices and quality fresh ingredients. But the Tapa's ..... hhmmm, I have spent a lot of time in Spain on business, and this is definitely not a tapa's bar. I had 3 items, potato brava's (which came out as spicy potatoes with a squeezed on sauce), a chilli salt squid (which came out as deep fried over battered calamari rings with you've guessed it...squeezed on sauce) and finally a chicken satay which was perfectly serviceable.

My summary, they don't appear to get the numbers of customers for freshly cooked and sourced Tapa's, so if you do go (and service is professional), stick to what they know.
