Lovely restaurant situated in the middle of town. The decor reminds me of a small little restaurant in France. The food is exquisite and menu has plenty to choose from. Ber and his staff are lovely and very helpful. Would highly recommend Catalpa

Eating on my own again whilst travelling for business. Hard to find somewhere decent to eat in this town but thankfully found this lovely restaurant. It has old world charm.

We had a lovely evening here. The restaurant itself is fairly small but that adds to the ambience. The host was charming and engaging. The food was extremely enjoyable... Minestrone soup was one of the best I have tried ... Definitely make this one of the places to stop off and eat if you are in Clonmel,

Delicious food what ever your taste, from the homemade Ministrone soup with fresh brown bread, the hunter staek is cooked to your taste and there is a huge variety of pasta dishes to choose from. We regularly eat here and the prices are very reasonable, and Ber the owner is always on hand to checkeverything is ok
