“Fabulous food, charming and intelligent staff, excellent location.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This is probably one of the best options for you in Kilkenny as it has a consistently high standard of food and service. Wee bit pricey but excellent. Word of caution at lunch time though, we had a late lunch in the front bar, which was marred by a woman who had two business meetings one after the other, on each side of us. One was to do with artisan food makers getting funding and marketing help. I am now an expert on this as she was so brash and loud that we heard every word. Working lunches are the life blood of restaurants during the week, but this wasn't lunching, it was using the restaurant as free office space. However, the service and food was excellent.

“Great lunch in relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We had lunch here the other day, sharing 3 of their starters from the lunch menu which were more than enough to satisfy our taste buds and our appetite. We had 3 lovely dishes - Ardsallagh Goats cheese Creme Brûlée, Warm chilli chicken salad and the Charcoal Goats bridge Trout cake - and each had a glass of New Zealand Sauvignon to compliment the dishes. Great lunch - definitely recommended for all visitors to Kilkenny.

“Zuni experience”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

I went to Zuni on Saturday night and I have to say this was one of the nicest meals I have ever tasted! The staff are excellent, it is great value for money considering you are tasting some top quality food. I cannot recommend this place enough.
