Steak
Marco Pierre White’s idea of simple is old school: elegant dishes prepared using the finest ingredients by chefs trained in London by Marco himself. The deceptively simple menu demands every dish earn its place: the choicest cuts of meat, freshest fish, classic sauces. The vibe? Grown up, relaxed, playful. The setting? An opulent room you’ll feel at home in, only better!

    World class food… from starters to dessert the food was incredible. Every mouthful left an amazing taste. We celebrated our husbands 40th Birthdays and even got a dessert with candles and singing. Amazing atmosphere and staff were very polite.

    Food as always was incredible. Had the scallops and rib eye on the bone. A bit pricy but it was incredible. Arguably my favourite restaurant in Dublin.

    Starter was cold (prawn bisque). Only 3 prawns in it too. My steak wasn't rested enough, very tough and over cooked or medium-rare. Spinach was extremely salty. Disappointing compared to last time we were there a year ago.

    For a lunchtime menu the food was overpriced and average. A good quarter of each of the two 10oz sirloin steaks comprised gristle and they only came with a small portion of fries, no vegetables. I have cooked better steaks myself. A tiny side portion of bernaise sauce was an additional €3 ! My wife's halibut was also tiny with no accompaniment at all. We will not be returning. Staff were lovely and the venue is lovely apart from the procession of photos of the owner.

    We got a warm and friendly welcome when we entered the restaurant. Our coats were taken which is a novelty these days. Our table was situated well and not too close to the other next guests. The service was excellent and our waiter was friendly with good tips on the menu. We went for the 'early bird' which was very good value but it would have been great to have more than 1 steak on offer. The quality and flavour of the food was excellent. The wine list is extensive some are expensive. The staff were accommodating when I asked for a cocktail that was not on the list. Overall an lovely evening.
