                                          Service was very slow. Waiting long time for main course. Lasagne was burned and left in oven too long. Disappointed as had wonderful experiences here before

                                          The food is delicious, but as a Mediterranean restaurant could have more options in the menu.

                                          Okay but not the best Italian we have eaten. A basket of bread was just a part baked baguette on a plate. Not great at all. Would I eat here again….. probably not. Service was fine and price was fair.

                                          We didn't stay! We were seated without menus, sat for around 10 minutes then left. We might've stayed longer but it seemed there were already other people complaining to the staff about other matters. We decided rather than chase staff for a menu, we'd just leave and go elsewhere, (across the road which was brilliant!)

                                          The food is gorgeous but I find the servers to be overly attentive & checking in every few minutes. I had to wait 10 minutes for my friend to arrive and in that time 3 people asked me did I want to order a drink while I waited to which I declined each time. When she did arrive it was only about 20 seconds until we were asked if we wanted to order, again my friend had only just sat down - poor attention to detail is my biggest peeve when eating out. Our main server on the evening we we there literally took plates off our table while my friend had food in her mouth & cutlery in her hands which was just unnecessary. Considering the restaurant wasn't crazy busy I couldn't understand the rush to clear the table, but it just seemed for the attentiveness that were just too many staff trying to keep themselves busy. Would definitely give them another chance because the food really was lovely but service wise be prepared to be kept on your toes & turning people away.

                                          The food is good but the service is awful. Staff are friendly but hopeless. Left waiting ages for everything. Never brought the dessert menu, we just paid and left. The restaurant is too noisy unless you like that kinda thing. Twice we’ve eaten here now and won’t again. Loads of better places to eat in Dublin.

                                          Good service, really enjoyed our food although one of our party (there were 6 of us) found the pasta too al dente. They cooked up another with no hesitation. Chorizo and chilli pizza was a winner.

                                          Ordered a caesar salad and for what I received for 8.75 was more minimal. Hardly any dressing, let alone croutons. My daughter ordered the chicken and prawn pasta. She was running a few minutes late so I asked the server could they return it to the kitchen to keep warm but I was told they are not allowed return food to the kitchen. Makes no sense at all.

                                          we were a 3 generation family group of 5 adults and one baby - the youngest being my 9 month old grandson. we booked a table for 5 (adults) via opentable for a table and when the first half of our group arrived they had us down as a table of 4 - it wasn't busy so that was readily overcome there was a new ordering system which meant that half the starters arrived after a long delay from the others. My Grandson is allergic to eggs so my daughter ordered the vegan pizza so she could give him some. there must have been traces of egg in the vegan pizza as my grandson started to have an allergic reaction around his mouth compared to other times we have been here the food was mediocre. the staff were friendly but this didn't make up for the other issues overall it probably turned us off a return visit

                                          Would have preferred seating upstairs as downstairs rather dark. Good choice of dishes, tasty food, value for money, will be back!

                                          Food was superb I got the small portion of buffalo wings to start and there was so many it was unbelievable value, got chicken fajitas as a main and my word they were delicious. So much food for very fair pricing especially in temple bar in Dublin. Restaurant was busy because of the concert on so thankfully booked the day before. Staff were lovely too. Will definitely visit again.

                                          Service here is appalling.. has gone down hill so much.. all the staff are new and not a patch on the previous staff. Have been a few times trying to give it the benefit of the doubt since Covid but the last 4 times service is shocking. Took 90 mins for me to get my main course! Pity as I was a regular bit I have to try somewhere new I’m afraid.

                                          Great location, great service and nice enough food, it had a really good choice of burgers and pasta.. as a group I think we enjoyed their starters more than their mains,** their wings and nachos are very tasty... and I'd go back for them alone. the mains were grand. the table staff was fabulous.
