My main disappointment was the food. I ordered fish parfait for starters which looked like whipped cream and with very little taste. The fish pie was nice but not enough fish and too much potatoes in the mix. This came with some leaves but it would have been better to have a proper side order with this which maybe should have been suggested by the waitress. Summer lemon mousse was not very tasty. For such a nice venue, pity the food was poor.

Staff were very attentive, refilling our water, bread etc. Food was as per usual faultless. The arancini and the smokehouse burger were very tasty. We were a table of 6 and all dishes were lovely. The portions are just the right amount as I hate leaving a restaurant feeling like your going to explode. We didn't have dessert on this occasion but each one on the menu sounded delicious. The bar staff are so interested too about each drink that they make. They can make any cocktail you like if you dont fancy anything on the menu, but I think it would be hard not to find something you like. Looking forward to getting back there soon.

Our server was absolutely lovely. Great table. Lovely ambiance. I didn’t enjoy my main course which was the only vegetarian option on the menu.. it wasn’t nice. I added a side of fries to try make the best out of it but next time I’d probably just opt for 2 starters instead. But we had a great night!

We’ve eaten at Old Street multiple times now and it’s never failed to deliver delicious food and cocktails. Highly recommend the Pretty in Pink, hazelnut tart and the Cote de boeuf

We had a lovely evening on Sunday last with our 1 year old. The atmosphere was so casual and calm, staff were brilliant and so friendly with our little man. They made sure there was enough space for us and our high chair to not feel in the way of others.
We enjoyed a lovely 3 course meal with wine for a very reasonable price, considering the service, quality of food and surrounding's you are immersed in.
We love Old Street and will be back soon.

Everything was lovely except - hardly any fish in the fish pie 😏. And although the Eton Mess was good it wasn’t the big dolop of cream strawberries and meringue that one expects when you say Eton Mess😞. Also I but on my booking that it was my mums birthday, (as you did ask) and could you do a candle in desert or something simple. Nothing happened 😞. Otherwise I really like the place.

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!
