A lovely comfortable and cosy eaterie. We had a snack soup/ toasted sandwiches, which we enjoyed. The restaurant was clean - even the cube sugar was individually wrapped in cellophane! Would certainly go there again

We visited The Grapevine a few weeks ago on a busy Saturday night, the restaurant was full, and very busy. The waiter in charge ask us to wait a moment and then seated us promptly. We have 6 tapas between and they were delicious. The service was excellent, out waiter, probably the owner, made a few "extra miles" for us.... More

We went here on a Wednesday night. Only two others in the place. On arrival we were greeted by the manager/waiter who more or less grunted at us and showed us where to sit. Zero chat at all. Brought down empty glasses and a jug of water which we had to pour ourselves. Delivered food which was fine but nothing... More

Ate here recently in the company of three adults on a slow Thursday evening. Efficient staff in a lovely cozy setting provided a great backdrop for a lovely evening. We decided to order for the table; chicken skewers, ribs, quesadillas, risotto, bruscetta (8 pieces!), chicken & chorizo, patatas bravas!!! That should do four people! A bottle of wine, a glass...

Myself and my husband eat here all the time and the service, food and wine are always excellent. The only downside is what appears to be the restaurant supervisor/manager he could do with a bit of work on his personality, he's not the friendliest and always makes me feel that he'd rather be somewhere else. As a result after usually... More

We had wandered into The Grapevine one Saturday night without a reservation and were told the restaurant was fully booked and turned away at the door. The place looked nice and I thought it must be really good considering it was booked out so we decided we make a reservation the next time we were in Kilkenny. Unfortunately the place... More

We visited without a reservation, but were given a lovely table. Good service but should check in on customers a little more often perhaps, really tasty food and the wine of the month was a winner!!! A bit drafty around the entrance, but the ambience is really cosy!!! Delighted we visited!!

We were hoping for something a little more Italian judging by the name, but it was a cute little locals place so we sat and had a glass of wine before moving on.

My partner and I travelled from Galway for a mid week break and stumbled across grapevine. Wine choice was fantastic and good even better. We had 6 dishes between us with chirizo in red wine being the best. I would highly recommend this place and we will be back! Very friendly staff also. Big thumbs up!!!
