Exceptional. Best Micheline restaurant that we’ve been (so far :D) Service was amazing which made it even better. Due to government restriction, we had to go for 3 course because we didn’t stay in Mount Juliet. However, definitely would like to come back and stay as well.

"Deserves its reputation"
Had a wonderful meal here last night. We had the seven course tasting menu with matching wines. The staff were happy to change one of the courses to meet our requirements. The food was beautifully presented, with great flavours and textures. The wine was excellent as was the service. Finally the dining room was lovely. Can’t ask for anything more!

"Best meal ever!"
Without a doubt this was the best meal of my life! A beautiful restaurant with fantastic service. We had the 7 course Taster and it was spectacular..each course absolutely gorgeous..but the cod dish with a beurre blanc sauce was sensational as was the lovage ice cream with a rhubarb foam. We are blessed in Ireland with top notch food and it doesn't get much better than this.

"Wine is superb!"
The Lady Helen is such a beautiful setting and the view of the grounds from the window is breathtaking. That said, our meal was just as excellent. The wine steward (I wish I had remembered her name!) was knowledgable and enjoyed helping us decide which wine would be best with our meal. She was correct!

Lots of attention to detail and professionalism. It would be hard to find another venue to match this quality, be it for an important business dinner or a special family moment.

Will come again, to be sure!
