We went for the 2 courses for €15 and it was awful!
We had the garlic and White wine prawns on a salad but the there was only about 4 baby prawns and no sauce and the salad was just lettuce with no dressing at all!
Mains was fettucine with chicken in cream sauce and again no taste..
We complained and he offered us a shot of sambuca!

I went to this restaurant because the landlady of the B&B we were in recommended it to us.
And it was worthwhile following her advice!
The dinner offer was a two-course dinner for 15 Eur, and it was tasty, well presented and also a generous portion.
The service was very nice (the waiter had the care and style even of a much more expensive restaurant, I would say!) .
The decoration itself was pleasant - a refreshing and relaxing moment after a day's walk through Kilkenny!

As i've written in the title the food in this restaurant is tasty, well presenented and perfectly proportioned. My partner and i were walking through the city and noticed a sign in window of this establishment that said two course lunch 10 euro and two course dinner 15 euro, so for that kind of value we had to have a glance at the menu at least. After browsing through we had to go and give this place a try. The 10 euro deal covered all starters (some priced at 6.95) and all mains which were priced between 9-12.50. I had the caesar salad starter and the chicken in a creme sauce with onion and parmean penne pasta. My partner had the bruscetta which was a full pizza which she had to share as she had ordered a pizza for mains. All the food tasted fresh and well prepared and the pizza was as good as ive tasted. The service was very quick and friendly. A full meal for 2 for 20 euro. A mcdonalds would of been the same price for us. Will be returning again, definitly worth a look if your looking for affordability without the loss of quality.

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
