Perfect location and very easy to get a taxi. We were a party of 3 and ordered the crab claws and prawns, the other two had the special of surf and turf which was quite pricey at 30 euros each but very tasty and well prepared. Overall the bill worked out to 40 euros per head. Dublin is a very pricey city to eat and drink.

We dined here as a group of 5 girls for the bottomless brunch on Saturday - it was a really enjoyable experience, the food was delicious and they were brilliant at topping up the drinks. The choice of mimosa and bellini is lovely.

Overall the food was just lacking in taste and quality. The wings were very bland, the steak was very fatty and the sides were also not great. The only thing I enjoyed was the wine and cocktails....food was just poor. Would not go back.

The service was quick and friendly , although you pay €10 tip on your bill for this.
However we were seated on a high chair/Stool kind which are so uncomfortable and when we asked to sit elsewhere as one suffers with a back hip we were told we couldn't. The food was ok but we wouldn't return next time we visited dublin
The bottomless Bellini's were probably the best thing about it, although only one person out of our group was drinking.

Not bad but not great overall and overpriced

Best wings I've ever had and the service was great. Even though it was so close to Christmas the staff were friendly and not jaded. Portions are by very big otherwise it would be 5 stars all round

I couldn't recommend beef and lobster high enough - looking to expand our brunch options from the usual fare we decided to try beef and lobster at the top of parliament street and wow! The food is fantastic, the crab cakes and chicken and waffles are unbelieveably good and the staff are very friendly and helpful ! Will definitely be visiting again very soon !

Was looking for somewhere to go to dinner & came upon this place by chance. Not a warm welcome , just told to go to the table. Nice waiter came over & gave us menus & took drinks order. Unlimited water , so good. Had a nice cocktail. Glad we went with the recommendation of the Beef Wellington with Red wine sauce. Really lovely. Sides we so so. Rocket & parmesan salad had the horrid grated cheese that you get in those pots you buy at the supermarket not fresh. Sides let it down really. Place quiet too for a saturday night. €4 for a side of fries a bit steep. There was something lacking somewhere. Managers look fed up. Waiters look happy. Could be amazing . Good location near temple bar.

The bottomless brunch is the big draw for this place. The food isn’t great, it’s fine nothing wrong with it but there are way better places to eat. I read a couple of reviews before I went which mentioned the noise, I could barely hear myself think at times the table next to us were screaming and shouting the place down.
The staff were lovely, really friendly, informed on the menu and worked very efficiently. I would recommend for a boozy brunch with people you see regularly not for friends you need to catch up with!

Disappointing. Service was quite slow. Food brought to the table separately. Restaurant was not busy, so if 5 people can not have their meal delivered at the same time I’m not sure how they’d manage of a busy day.

Food was ok. Portions on the small side. Lots of black pudding, skimped on the crab. Nice coffee.
