We had dinner at Campagne during our visit to the Kilkenny Arts week. Everything from the organic cured salmon/deep fried oyster starter to the monkfish main course to the passion fruit and chocolate chiboust dessert was perfection. The staff were very attentive and professional. The ambiance was pleasant with just a hint of background music that was not at all intrusive. The main sound was of diners conversing - such a welcome change. I will be coming back here, with friends, in the near future. You must try it - this restaurant is a real gem.

We were a large group of food and wine lovers.
Food was wonderful.Starter was a duck terrine with yummy pickled cherries and almonds.
This was followed by lobster ravioli, lobster bisque. main course was a perfectly presented spring lamb with great veg.This was followed by a sheep cheese which was too heavy .
Wines were wonderful.service excellent.
Just leave a little extra time to locate the restaurant as out of the way. Also take a warm wrap or cardigan as cool inside.Well worth a visit.

Pros: Excellent Food, Very Efficient Staff
Cons: Vegetarian Option

It was a miserably wet day when we made our way to Campagne for lunch. The outside of the restaurant is nothing to write home about but the interior was welcoming as were the staff. We were quickly seated and drinks soon arrived, the sun was beginning to shine.

Although the fixed price menu is limited you can choose from the a La Carte if you can't find anything on the former. Starting with the courgette soup the meal just got better and better. The shoulder of lamb was slow cooked and just fell of the bone. The chocolate tart was rich and tasty and for me the highlight of the meal.

One of the group is a vegetarian and was disappointed with the gratin which they felt showed a lack of imagination. It was described as basically a few vegetables on a plate with some cheese on top. If Camapgne go to the trouble of offering a veggie menu why not follow through and deliver a meal to match the standard of the regular meals.

The other members of the group enjoyed their meals and there were clean plates all around. I would definitely recommend the restaurant.

My wife celebrated a significant birthday lunch with her family in Campagne recently. Reading some of the reviews which suggested opting for early birds as the restaurant is pricey, I would like to offer an alternative opinion after our experince there. Campagne is a Michelen star restaurant. The food is superb and the service sensational. Some of our party went for the early-bird, equivalent and some went a la carte. While all the food was gorgeous, there was little doubt that the dishes off the al a carte menu were not just spectacular but superb value for the additional cost. Hopefully we will get there again and taste much more of the al a carte. Of my own choices, the quail dish was out of this world.

We had the early bird and it was great value. The food was excellent. We had a Chilean red wine and it was really good. We had our daughter with us and felt that the staff were really child friendly. Would definately recommend to friends visiting Kilkenny.
