    I ordered the sea bass and not only was the table side preparation entertaining, the fish was amazing. I may never order sea bass again because this was so perfect! Definitely the best seafood we've had in Dublin. My only complaint was that as the restaurant got busy, service declined.

    The wine list is set at too high a price range. There should be a far greater list at prices between €35 and €50. Otherwise, for a celebratory occasion, the experience was very good.

    The best restaurant that I have eaten at for years. The food was simply excellent. So full of flavour; scallops, pasta cooked to perfection. The most divine steak I've ever tasted. The staff couldn't have been nicer. Made a great wine suggestion in my price range and we weren't disappointed. It's worth every cent and i'm already planning when I can go back!

    food was excellent, I had the sole, there was some theatre involved in the serving of the fish, which was nice and the restaurant also catered for my son by making pasta to his request as the menu is not tailored towards children. Would highly recommend.

    Lovely visit, even though we brought a two year old with us. Food was fantastic, the wines as well. The only thing I can recall as some kond of feeback, was the narrow stairs and toilets (with an energetic two year old with stroller in tow).

    Although our food was tasty, we felt that it was really overpriced and that it was being pushed on us very quickly. I wouldn’t have presented the tiramisu like that to my dog, really, really poor. Wait staff were extremely pleasant.

    We ordered fish which was lovely but I was disappointed with what it was served with …just broccoli & potatoes. I felt for the price we were paying we should have received more options between the four of us. Broccoli & potatoes are a bit bland and the dinner plate did not look very appetising. My husband does not like broccoli & when we asked about ordering other sides we were not encouraged. Also as a Coeliac I found the staff not very knowledgeable about allergens. Again this year there were no dessert options for me despite having mentioned it at time of booking. We booked our table many weeks ago & the table we were given was near the entrance door & we were very cold so asked to be moved. We were made feel like we were an inconvenience.
