Had been wanting to try this place for some time and my partner brought me in December for my birthday. Amazing food!! Unusual setting from your normal restaurant as it has the feel of a dining room in someones house more than a typical restaurant. Only open a couple of nights a week and needs to be booked well in...

Despite the location, the inconvenience of getting all the way to this remote little house that reminds you of a relatives residence... This is by far the best restaurant in County Carlow. The hostess is mannered , her attention to detail impeccable! The food, well that is a wonderful story of exquisite ingredients, cooked to perfection. The pheasant, scallops, delicate... More

We had a lovely meal in Sha-Roe Bistro last week and we really enjoyed the experience. The food was good however not quiet to the same standard as our last visit. Service was excellent throughout and it is a very cosy restaurant as well. They also welcome kids and look after them very well. I would recommend a visit if... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal here, a real treat, every morsel delicious. We had a late booking 9pm, and felt a little rushed, but service was good even though they were busy. An intimate and cosy setting. Next time we will try get an earlier booking. Fantastic menu which had lots of choice for a small bistro. We spent €75... More

This restaurant was recommended to me and didn't disappoint. Small and quaint set up with a lovely wood burning stove, the dining room is lovely. Every course was spectacular and the staff are extremely friendly and attentive. This is fine dining at its best - without the stiffness that sometimes comes with it. Very relaxing and enjoyable.

I have eaten in Sha-Roe seven or eight times and have never been disappointed. It is a little "off the beaten track" - I have to travel over an hour to get there - but is well worth the journey. The room can get a little noisy at times but the food is wonderful. Good local produce, well cooked and... More
