We visited on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy. Staff were friendly and efficient. As a vegetarian I had limited choice. The veg tagine was wholesome ...really a vegetable stew with boiled rice. It felt more like a casual dinner than an occasion. The black pudding starter was good as was the goats cheese. One dessert was ordered , baked Alaska, and again fine. The food lacked a wow factor. With 3 drinks I felt the nearly €100 bill was high for the casual atmosphere of the restaurant.

We were a little concerned because the place was almost empty. But the food was surprisingly good and the young waitresses friendly.

The Kitchen Restuarant has to be one of my favourite places to eat in Drogheda. The food is always tasty and presented well. There is always a feeling that whatever is ordered will be good and sure to please the palate. The atmosphere is lovely and has a calmness about it that makes for an even better dining experience. My only criticism of the mains is that they can be a little bit over seasoned and a touch on the salty side, but nonetheless, very tasty and the plate is usually cleaned up with nothing left behind.

The desserts are hit and miss. I always opt for the cakes, as the Victoria Sponge, Lemon Drizzle, and Coconut cakes are my favourites, but only if they are fresh. If they've been hanging around longer than one day, they tend to start drying out.

All in all, a fantastic restuarant with good service. Proprietor Anne is always welcoming and makes her customers feel like old friends. This is one restaurant that I am very happy to see still in business, and it is on my list of recommended places to eat.

I try eat here once a month and i am always shocked how all the tables are not full. Great change from the generic restaurant menus in all the restaurants around Drogheda (Eastern Seaboard, Black Bull etc)

Seasonal menu with beautiful roast potatoes, peculiar vegetables and ingredients which you would have never heard of of.

The Baked Alaska is the best desert in have ever had in a restaurant.

The chef has to of previously worked in a Michelin star restaurant.

Food was exceptional. I rate it as one of the top 3 restaurants in Drogheda, along with my favorite, FIFTY4, which is a fabulous seafood restaurant with an award winning chef along with Monersterboice Inn, which everybody knows is the best Steak house in the country. Go and you love the menu with great daily specials. Great for lunch too...You'll love it
