The staff was really nice. We sat on the outside and it was quite windy, but the heaters were able to keep the group warm. The food was great, I had a vegetarian plate and it was really good.

I’m afraid to say it was the worst meal I’ve ever eaten in Dublin. We were a table of three and none of us ate our starters or mains. The waitress noticed we hadn’t touched any of the food but didn’t ask why. It came to almost €70 per head and it was honestly revolting food. Such a shame as it’s a beautiful location.

Staff were so friendly and accomodating. Very good social distancing, heaters and an overhead cover. Food was good and 2 for 1 cocktails were great!!

Our visit to Charlotte's Quay was excellent. Staff were extremely friendly and very aware of COVID 19 guidelines. The food was really good,we had the burger and cod croquettes, would highly recommend.
The view of the Grand Canal Area was lovely and really added to our visit.

We will be back again.

The location was excellent. Unfortunately my food was very poor. I have the duck special. It was a duck leg sitting on top of deep fried cubed potatoes that had blobs of soggy onions sitting on them. Not good.

Food was good, nice place, guy who served our meals was really nice, but the waitress/hostess who showed us to our seats and took our order was very rude and should not be dealing with customers in a restaurant.

Nice location and lovely staff but the food is not great, I sent back my main and the rest of the food was just ok. It's very expensive as well for very small portions. The coffee was good though and they have plenty of outdoor seating with nice views. Overall they would have to up their game on the food side of things food side of things for me to go back.

The place is stunning with an amazing view of the river. Plenty of options for drinks and food. The food, however, comes in really tiny portions, so if you're really hungry one dish won't be enough. Other than that the place is great, the service is great, highly recommended!

Absolutely loved the gambas dish, Ham and cheese croquettes and frosé.

Good menu, food, staff and drinks. Was quiet enough so we could have a chat, nice relaxed atmosphere.

Cant wait to go back.
