Excellent food and service, lovely atmosphere, good wine list. More

OpenTable Diner -

Excellent. Very good food and exceptional service. We went for afternoon tea with our twin baby girls. I was not sure initially that going with two young babies was a good idea, but the staff made every effort to make us feel welcome and ensure we had everything we needed, starting with a table with ample space for the buggy. The food was delicious and impeccably presented. I would definitely go back and recommend. More

Dining Bar | South City Centre, Dublin 2

Starter and mains were very nice. However, deserts were somewhat of a letdown. Banoffi and chocolate melt were too simple and 'lazy' for want of a better phrase. Atmosphere was vibrant and enjoyable. However, music was a tad too loud, 'along conversation difficult. This would affect a date night. More
