We only spent one night in Kilkenny and we were so glad we chose here for food and drinks. The food was delicious and the cocktails and beer were superb. The staff were very friendly too and it’s definitely worth a visit if you are in Kilkenny. Will definitely be back!

I’ve visited a few times since the reopening and it’s great to be back inside the doors !! Food , although the menu is smaller not surprisingly, and service is still excellent as always !! I missed the ever welcoming Karina on each occasion but John , Anna and Alan were very accommodating and welcoming !! This industry has had a tough 18 months and are still running on reduced hours but the crew in Matt’s are doing a great job under the circumstances. Well done one and all !!

We were just waiting for the table that had been promised to us 2 minutes ago, and the waiter just finally decided not to accept us because one of us (the only irish guy) was looking « too drunk for him », what really was not true, at all. (He didn’t even get the chance to say anything) We were so disapointed because we chose that bar thanks to comments on trip advisor… we are very diapointed because we had a very good time 2 hours ago at that same bar… definitely never coming back in that bar again

Very disappointing, had been before but this time menu didn’t resemble one advertised, Covid blamed but this should have been changed in website, Matts Platter was served, clearly over cooked, ,prawns, chicken crispy and tasteless ,potato wedges cold and I tasty, did tell waitress and subsequently waiter, both said sorry but didn’t demonstrate any level of concern ! Kilkenny has lots of choice and on this quality Matt’s doesn’t meet basic standard unfortunately! Won’t be back and we do visit this city fairly frequently !Wouldn’t recommend to anyone unfortunately although the two members of staff were very nice and friendly but that’s not enough!!
