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.

A group of us visited recently for a family birthday dinner. Our waitress Caroline was just lovely. Caroline explained the menu, the options and how it all worked and was very patient with us answering all our questions. We tried pretty much everything on the...tapas menu and everything was delicious! Could not fault anything it was all top notch! Especially the mushrooms and the prawns!! Would highly recommend a visit here!More

Befani’s was buzzing for our lunch on St. Patrick’s Day and well decked out with subtle green lighting and flags. Great mix of families, couples and friend groups. Food and drinks are always consistently excellent, as is the service. ☘️☘️☘️

Really enjoyed my stay. We had dinner last night in Befani’s - exquisite food at a very affordable price. Made even better by the attentive and warm staff. Accommodation was equally excellent - the rooms were spacious and immaculate, located right in the town centre....I will most definitely be staying here again next time I’m visiting Clonmel.More

Befani's Guest House is very pleasant, clean comfortable and quiet. But the restaurant is extraordinary! Be sure to book - it's not that big, and is very popular. Open Thurs-Sunday pm. Clonmel is an attractive and interesting little town, blessedly free from the tour buses...and milling mobs. Highly recommended, but note that the guesthouse has steep stairs and no lift.

Amazing place, cute set up, you feel you are in another country. food was exquisite and reasonably priced, same as the wines, which were high quality yet affordable. Food was out of this world, a very different menu with options you wont find elsewhere. Highly...recommend, service also amazing friendly attentive on the ball staff. Well done!More

We had an amazing Communion dinner in Befanis. The staff were so attentive to our requests for gluten and dairy free courses. The food was delicious, fresh and piping hot. We couldn't say enough about our evening. We'll definitely be back!

We spent a night at Befani's and thoroughly enjoyed it. A friendly welcome, spotlessly clean, comfy bed and wonderful breakfast. Clare, the waitress at breakfast, was very friendly and informative. We hope to be back.

Found this location on an internet search and was reassured by previous reviews. I don't think they did this place justice. It really is incredible! we booked in to the town house accommodation which is spotlessly clean well decorated and furnished and fabulously comfortable. Later...we had a table booked for dinner which was exquisite. The tapas are amazing and the main dishes are well prepared tasty and generous. Both owners took the time to have a chat as they could fit it in. great value and we will definitely be back! can't recommend too highly.More

Our room was warm and comfortable and spotlessly clean. The mattress was extremely comfortable. Location was excellent in the centre of town. Breakfast was delicious, i had the orange juice which was yum, the fruit platter, and the full Irish. Service was excellent. Have to...mention that coeliac and vegan is very well catered for, just ask for the chef Michael, nothing is too much trouble for him. A warm welcome when we arrived also. Highly recommendMore

My son and I stayed here for 3 nights and what a beautiful stay we had. Staff were extremely friendly, professional and helpful. Our rooms were fresh and clean and were cleaned every day. Comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. Breakfast was so...delicious and had a lovely two course menu with nice filtered coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. We also dined at the restaurant on our last night. Befani's is definitely the place to be in Clonmel. Buzzing atmosphere with happy dinners. Our three course was very delicious and portions were well served. A special shout out and huge thanks to all the staff including owner and proprietor Pulvio and Claire and Adata who were all outstanding. Thank you all!! Please do stay here if you are in Clonmel. Home away from home!!!More

Absolutely fantastic meal at Befanis restaurant. The tapas were divine and the great thing was others could have a main if they didn’t fancy the tapas. The calamari and king prawn is a must and my favourite was the chicken waffle in a lovely sauce....The staff are very attentive and the atmosphere is superb.More
