Top 10 restaurants in Kildare, Ireland

December 24, 2017 Concepcion Newsome

Kildare (Irish: Cill Dara, meaning "church of the oak") is a town in County Kildare, Ireland. Its population of 8,412 (2011 Census) makes it the eighth largest town in County Kildare and the 55th largest in the state, with a growth rate of 8% since the 2006 census. Although Kildare gives its name to the county, Naas is the county town. The town lies on the R445, some 50 km (31 mi) west of Dublin – near enough for it to have become, despite being a regional centre in its own right, a commuter town for the capital.

My favourite restaurant in Kildare. The food is amazing, good value & love the staff. Pat the owner is fantastic, has such high standards and runs the place like a Michelin star restaurant. I can never resist the black pudding & apple starter, seriously tasty and so different. I'm a regular visitor and never had a bad experience. Two big thumbs up.

The venue is nice, plenty of parking, the staff were friendly and and the food was good. It was good but it wasn’t great. Not a bad experience, but I better options around.

Hartes Of Kildare

We source our food and drinks carefully, providing high quality, fresh and sustainable products whenever possible. Our staff strive for excellence in the creation, preparation and service of our meals, for example we can recommend the perfect craft beer accompaniment for your main course or even help you choose from our extensive gin menu. It is our ambition to create a hospitality business where service, quality, value for money and consistency are always the main focus.

Reviewed By Liam P

Stopped off here last Sunday for an impromptu lunch with my wife and son as we had been in the area that day and I know from last time the food in Hartes never disappoints.
We had no booking but were lucky to be seated as Sunday lunch understandably can be busy so I suggest to book in order not to be disappointed. This is probably our 3rd time there and it always has delicious food well presented and cooked to a high standard. They also have a great selection of local craft beer to choose from.
The staff could not be more friendly and we are already looking forward to our next visit.

Have to say.
Silken Thomas does fantastic food and all staff does a fantastic job.
My food was fantastically cooked and throughly enjoyed.
I had the apple pie dessert last night (8/2/18) which came with custard and cream. Tastes amazing but could of done with a little more cream.
This morning I had the full Irish breakfast which was amazing. Fantastic quality of food.
Aimee was a great server and makes you feel very welcome.

Sunday ah the day of rest. Bring Wifey out for lunch and none better than Kingsland Restraunt the Square Kildare town. Alert No MSG in this Restraunt. Only pure chicken stock. This is always my issue with restraunts from the Orient. I love the food here. Sarah and Joe ann greet you with a big smile and the dining experience begins. Joe Ann's brothers are the two chefs and they simply love their work. The dining is intimate with little nooks and lovely decor. Only around 25 covers now so ring a head when you book. The service is friendly and unintrusive. I have been dining there for years and I have not ever had a unsatisfying meal. Food cooked to perfection and MSG free. This little gem in Kildare is worth a visit. Only problem is now once I've given the secret away you'll all want to come. Happy Dining.

Service was excellent and very friendly. Food was presented very well and portions were a decent size. Unfortunately for us we thought the food was average - roast duck and chilli chicken - would have expected much better for the price paid

Starbucks

Reviewed By MarOReilly - Ennis, Ireland

I always enjoy visiting the Kildare outlet and especially to see the wonderful new extension. Starbucks has moved as a result and has lost some of its charm in decor moving away from small cosy tables. The coffee and snacks are the same fare, pricey but I have to say I had the best hot chocolate ever! Convenient that the high standard village bathrooms are right next door.

Sitaaray Indian Restaurant

Reviewed By noellled

This restaurant has the best Indian food I have ever tasted the flavours are just fantastic, it was definitely the best Indian food we have ever had. We both prefer very spicy food and most restaurants just destroy the taste with spice but the chef prepared the best flavoursome spicy food we have ever tasted an at €15.95 for 2 courses mid week this is a steal .... Highly recommend well worth a visit just Delicious .
