Great ambience and service was wonderful. Main course of shared cote de boeuf was tough and chewy, but staters and desserts were fab

Perfect service, great food in a very cosy atmosphere. It is no coincidence that this restaurant is in the Michelin guide.
Very well deserved.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We were last minute guests and they found a way to accommodate us. We took a seat at the window to enjoy watching the sunset and passerbys. We absolutely loved the place: the food was excellent, so was the wine, and the prices seemed fair.

We had a beautiful meal in Old Street again and created a tapas table for ourselves with their seafood starters. Food was fab especially the prawns, a must-try!! Gorgeous bottle of Pouilly Fume and few cocktails at the bar finished off a wonderful night. Great atmosphere and wonderfully friendly staff.

I love the food and libations at Old Street. I stopped in for a solo meal (the food where I was staying was...uninspired...so I made the drive over to Malahide). Food was great as ever, but sadly there was a large party seated adjacent to the bar seat where I was...and they were LOUD. Happily I had a set of headphones handy. I watched a documentary about Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Review while I ate a delicious meal and drank a yummy cocktail. Moral of this story? Always ask when booking whether there’s a party going on in the room where you’ll be seated...but also? Eat a meal at Old Street Cafe! It’s worth the drive!!

The restaurant interior is nice, stylishly decorated, spacious, clean toilets etc. the service was quite good too, but the food was really hit and miss. We were a party of 4, we got starter and main course and some dishes were good but some not. I ordered lamb pie, that had 3 small pieces of lamb and what it felt like a jar of marinated cocktail onions inside, considering that the place is pricey, you expect all dishes will be of same quality.

Lovely evening with family! Really nice Wine List, wonderful variety of menu selections. Our Vegetarian guest was very happy with the offerings and it was so nice for one of our party to enjoy a casual burger with chips while another ordered the Chefs' special of Ray Wing - different ends of the spectrum but both done perfectly. The service was outstanding, Laura was very thoughtful and looked after us as very well. Desserts were amazing! The restaurant was quite busy so it was a bit loud and full of energy, but we didn't mind too much!

Great night. Haven’t been back since the opening few weeks but it was a fantastic return. Food was lovely, wine and after dinner cocktail nice too, restaurant was busy but comfortable, service was a bit slow but probably put down to how busy it was and the price was very reasonable. A must try and we will definitely be back.

I brought my Mum to Old Street for Mother's Day lunch, and had a really enjoyable afternoon. From the moment we walked in the door, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Food was beautiful in taste and presentation, it was a great value menu for Mother's Day and a really good selection to choose from. My mum was really happy with her afternoon and that's really what it's all about given the day !
Thanks to all at Old Street, I would have no hesitation in recommending your restaurant.
