    This was the best food experience we have had in a long time. They have the entire experience perfected from the service to the cocktails, interior and of course the food. There’s a lot of passion here and we will certainly be returning!

    Wonderful evening and our first time. We enjoyed it immensely. I don’t usually enjoy counter top seating. But with a chefs table view into the kitchen it was great. A neighbourhood gem. A young and v capable team.

    First time dining here and the first time for several years that we had been out to a place that offered this type of menu (we are usually pizza places or local cafe types). The food was excellent and varied and when eating each mouthful with the array of ingredients on the plate showed the imagination of the chefs involved. The service was excellent, and the prices were what we considered good in this day and age of high energy costs and in a city where a pizza place will cost almost €20 for a pizza, the mains here at €25-35 (excluding the mound of beef to share) were spot on. I ordered a side but the portion size of the main was actually very sufficient (I ate all the side though cause it was nice). I would recommend this place and will be back. We were there on a weeknight and it wasnt too busy - if full it could be noisy - we had a window booth and it was nice even with a small group dining nearby.

    We visited Orwell Road for a birthday dinner. The staff were attentive without being overbearing. The food was amazing, I'm still thinking about the dessert. Good wine selection and a limited menu of alternative cocktails, the two we tried we're great.

    Previous visits the food was really good. However this time both the main (turbot - for the most part bone and a bit tasteless) and the cheese (trying but failing to be a desert) we’re really disappointing. It’s definitely worth a visit and I hope the Orwell was just having an off evening when I went.

    This was my second visit. The food was again absolutely fantastic. We thought it all came too fast though and we felt a little rushed…were done with appetizers, starters and mains within an hour. And it’s too cramped when you’re with two.

    We went for an early lunch seating, which was very pleasant as it was nice and quiet. The waitstaff helped us with selection. The scallops in the chicken+scallop dish were amazing. The other dishes were delicious but I did not give it a 5 star as it was a touch salty. The lobster bisque sauce (from the cod dish) would have been mind blowingly good if not for that. This did work really well in the ice cream that accompanied the choc hazelnut dessert. The portions are very generous we were so happily full.
