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.

We were delighted to find this charming family owned restaurant in Kilkenny. We enjoyed meeting the engaging owners who shared their experiences and explained their cuisine. We enjoyed excellent pasta dishes, salmon, and delicious soups. The cherry on top was the Four Friends wine from...Bulgaria, which we found delicious and a bargain as well as appropriately named for our two-couple trip.More

We had an amazing dinner here last night. The food was so delish. I had wonderful prawn and artichoke pasta and my husband enjoyed his chicken scaloppini very much. Service was very efficient and friendly. The wine - I can't wait to go back for...more, that was possibly the best Cabernet I have ever tried. Thank you all for the lovely evening. Kim and JamesMore

Went for a meal the night before my brothers wedding. Waited an hour for main before we asked - do you have a time estimate for our dinner? The response- it's coming....no apology. Eventually they come out an serve our dishes one by one -...my mother puts the first bite of chicken into her mouth - it was RAW. She spat it out luckily and told the manager- she looked at her blankly and didn't apologise....we had to leave at 9pm....no dinner , the night before a family wedding....no apology, they just watched us leave. We are stunned and have never come across the likes of this. AVOID!More

A friend and I were in Kilkenny for a quick visit. We went to Truffles restaurant for dinner. What a little jewel of a restaurant. It is small, family owned and operated. We started with Bruschetta…..excellent choice. Then my friend had chicken scappolini , while...I had a vegetarian moussaka . The food was excellent, and Albariño wine was delicious. We had a great relaxing meal in a very comfy environment. The service was excellent. It was attentive yet not intrusive. Wonderful find. Have recommended to friends several times.More

Many thanks to the team at Truffles for a tasty meal and the right balance of attentive, friendly but not overbearing service even at a busy time. Most importantly, they showed real understanding of cooking for coeliacs. The menu is almost entirely adaptable to coeliac/gluten...intolerant diners. It was a great find.More

Excellent meal from a family run business who obviously take pride in their food, which was amazing, and service, which was attentive. Would definitely eat there again if back in Kilkenny!😍

We stopped by here on the off-chance that they would have a free table and luckily they did. They said they would need it back in an hour but we said that would be OK. We ordered the house red wine and I can honestly...say it was the best house wine we have ever had. It's Bulgarian from a Vineyard which the owners of the restaurant know, as they are Bulgarian. The food was absolutely superb, the best tomato soup and a lovely fishcake to start then a huge pork shop and king prawn tagliatelle for mains. The owners were then able to change the tables around so we didn't have to rush out. It was a great evening and the service was really good. Highly recommended.More
