If in the area, I would recommend this restaurant. However I would not go out of my way to eat there. Service was good. Food was good.

Always one of my favorite treats when we go to Dublin, I wouldn’t look anywhere else, food, service, setting and atmosphere is perfect, also it’s spotlessly clean for such a busy restaurant.

I thought this was a lovely restaurant. However the plaice was more batter than fish. However, the service was excellent especially in relation to gluten free options. Although it wasn't on the menu when my sister said she was looking for a chicken dinner they managed to make her one without the sauce. Although gluten bread was just undern£4 for one slice.

The food was not outstanding but average.
It was very crowded en there were people waiting for a place to be seated. This is where the manager did not know how to guide his personell. None if the waiters knew exactly what their job was....pitty

Ordered the pesto chicken pasta which was bland and tasteless and chicken was dry. Very disappointing.
Partner had goats cheese burger and chips which he was not impressed with.
We visited on new years eve which was very busy you could see the restaurant had took too many bookings and staff weren't organised for it at all. Partners food order was taken incorrectly. Poor service and rushed. Would not recommend or be visiting again. Waste of money. Would prefer going to McDonald's than going here.

Waitresses try their best, they are attentive and smiley, unfortunately food disappointed us very much.
I really expect to have Irish stew in Irish restaurant look and taste like a stew and not like a watery broth with carrots :-/

The main course of the meal was not great for 2 of the 3 of us at the meal but we did tell the waitress and the manager came and spoke to us discreetly and listened very well to our complaint. I really appreciated that service and attitude and it would make me go back in the future. The desserts were gorgeous and we had a very comfortable sitting area.

We were a party of 8. Wasn’t happy to find service charge of 15% automatically added to the bill if you were party of 8 or more. We always tip but feel annoyed when an automatic service charge is added rather than at our discretion. To make things worse 2 of our meals were very poor. The Irish stew had awful fatty lamb and another meal was dry salmon and cold potatoes and veg which must have been microwaved. Our other dishes were ok and they did deduct one meal value but wasn’t the best dining experience

Two course dinner was great value! I love the flip over lights to attract attention from the wait staff. Chef could maybe season with a heavier hand, but that's a minor niggle. Had a lovely time and will be back!

The food was average, very little if any info on suppliers, provenance, etc. Cheap ingredients was the overall opinion. However we had a very comfortable table, were well looked after by attentive, friendly staff and not rushed out after the last mouthful which is the way in so many Dublin restaurants.

The food was a very mixed bag. The Irish stew was watery and the meat in it was tough. The seafood chowder was decent as were the chicken wings. The mushroom appetizer was very tasty. Prices were too high for the quality of food. Our server was inattentive in more ways than one. After taking our order his job was complete; others brought our food to us, which is fine except that he didn't check back to see if we needed more drinks or anything. I rarely write negative reviews - normally I make good choices regarding restaurants. This time I made a mistake.

A family 3-day break in Dublin. The reviews were quite good so I decided to book a table for the four of us. We were very disappointed by the food. It was tasteless and pricey. If I come back to Dublin, I will chhose another restaurant.

The food was lovely. We had ordered garlic mushrooms for starters which were lovely. Then for main course I ordered steak which was well done and it was cooked to perfection. The other person ordered lasagne and said it was lovely and creamy. Only thing was we found service a bit slow.
