    The food was fab as always maybe little bit expensive for the small dishes. The atmosphere was buzzing. The one thing we were seated on the ground area then big group of 15 came in it was so loud and very squishy if there was a known crowd that was coming it would of been better to sit upstairs. Overall it was good.

    Very good place overall. Menu on the website slightly different from the one in the house, that could be updated. More baked/ cooked/ grilled tapas options would be a good issue too, there's god looking options but fried/ deep fried. Choice of ingredients is excellent and all the options are pretty tasty. Will recommend to everyone I know who are into this kind of experience. 5/5 stars

    This was my first time and I will most certainly be back again as well as recommending it. We were there mid-week so the dinning area upstairs was quiet and relaxed - exactly what we were looking for - while the bar area downstairs was quite busy. The service was attentive and the food was just wonderful - small plates with a Mediterranean flavor. This is a place to meet a few friends for a relaxed chat over good food and drink in pleasant surroundings.

    Warren was able to accommodate my friends dish to account for her allergies, which was great! However a small dish of broccoli was priced at €8.80, which we thought was steep.. very energetic atmosphere and lovely set up..

    Unfortunately the food did not meet out expectations. The ribs were more fat than meat and the rest did not taste great either. On the buttom level the noise can be a bit too loud, but on the other floors the ambiance is great.

    Food is overpriced for the quality and amount. Service wasn’t great, not very attentive, our table wasn’t checked to make sure all was ok or if we needed anything else. Seemed to concentrate on larger tables only. Took 15-20mins to get a second drink and bill, after plates were cleared from table. Won’t be back.

    This is the third time in this restaurant. First few times were a good experience, but this was not. Booked outside area , but was put out the back , up in the loft , which was covered . So wouldn’t class as outside. Ordered our wine and food together and was surprised when the food arrived out after 3 minutes of ordering. Chips were cold and we felt rushed . Very disappoint with this visit and will certainly be our last

    The restaurant is beautiful inside, but was incredibly overpriced for the value. I would describe all of the food plates as “small plates” meaning per person you would really need to order 2 each. We all left hungry and ended up going to McDonald’s. What we had was good, but just the value for what you get is not good. I think the server should have said the plates are small. I wouldn’t go again, I’ve found much better restaurants in Dublin.
