I recently visited a small local restaurant called " La Palmyra " in Kilkenny. i have been there several times now and each time i go, the food gets better and better. The first thing you notice is that it is a small place but the dim lighting and the candle lit tables will make for a very romantic meal or even just a place where you can go with friend or a business lunch. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and although the take away food is not the best, if you go and sit in for a meal you will not be disappointed. The food is extremely tasty , the pricing is quite reasonable and you even get a free shot of sambuca after your meal. You can expect to pay between €11 and €15 for a pasta dish and a little more for other dishes like steak. I would definitely recommend La Palmyra for any who is looking to go for a meal in Kilkenny

Having had a less than good lunch in a well promoted Kilkenney bar we looked hard for a restaurant for an evening meal. We almost turned around before we encountered this restaurant and we are all very pleased that we didn't.
The food was excellent, the staff very polite and helpful and we enjoyed a realy good family meal in pleasant, though fairly basic, surroundings before going on to enjoy a pint of the black nectar and traditional Irish music in a bar less than 100 metres away from La Palymyra (but over the bridge!)

La Palmyra is easy to miss although its on a main street into the City, which may account for the fact that it seemed less popular than some central restaurants. We browsed a large number of menus before trying it and were so glad we did - in fact we ate there on two days out of three! Its the cheaper of the Italian places in Kilkenny and its early bird menu undercuts most, but nothing is lost in quality or quantity. The pizzas are large and the meat dishes generous too. Service is pleasant and helpful, but not overbearing. Would certainly eat there again.
