Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent service, relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff. Very good vegan menu! We loved the food, vegans and no vegans alike. We had vegan bolognese and pasta with artichokes for us vegans and were thrilled with it, plus hummus and desserts. Amazing! Will go again for sure!

We had dinner here during a short visit to Kilkenny. Everything was perfect! The service was great and food delicious. They had a large vegetarian/vegan menu including a dessert. They even provided nutritional yeast for my pasta! (Little details like this make me so happy.)...If I lived in the area, I would definitely be a regular here.More

Excellent dishes, from the focaccia to the pasta to the lamb. Superb select wine pairings, and if you have room, a nice selection of desserts. Intimate dining with an interesting, maybe quirky, bit of background music. One of the best meal experiences I’ve had on...our trip to Ireland.More

Dinner was outstanding. They served me a half portion of their Gorgonzola Ravioli as an appetizer - FANTASTIC! The pork belly risotto was one of the best pork belly dishes we ever had. Not fatty, perfectly salty, tender and scrumptious.

Philip and I hadn’t been to Truffles for a while and it was the best meal we had anywhere in years. We had the duck pâté, hummus, pork belly risotto and the pork chop which were to die for. I had lemon ice cream for...dessert and that too was refreshing and delicious. Zori and Milko are always so welcoming and friendly and I’ve really missed them. We will be back!More

We had the most wonderful evening at Truffles restaurant in Kilkenny. Our hostess was warm and lovely, and the food was outstanding. As a coeliac, I had many choices for gluten free food on the menu (many items without modification). Highly recommended!

Not surprised that this restaurant has an average 5 star rating. We came for the early bird Prix Fixe menu. It was an exquisite meal. We had the roasted goat cheese salad and bruschetta appetizer. We also had the mushroom/truffle and catch of the day...risotto. We tried the 4 friends cabernet and thought it was a good wine, not special, but definitely a nice house wine. It was a lovely dinner. Best part, the bill was no more than if you opted for fish and chips around the block. Enjoy.More

Lovely little spot in the heart of Kilkenny, starters (bruschetta and goats cheese salad) were fantastic. Mains (half duck and ragu) were slightly less impressive, the ragu wasn’t as rich and tomatoey as you’d hope, desserts were very good. Nice wine, attentive and friendly staff...and reasonably priced. Would recommend.More
