    We had a table booked today for 2pm. We knew from the reservation that the table was for 2 hours so were prepared for this. We had 3 courses as we assumed this would be fine with the 2 hours. At 1540 we were told that our table was required at 1530 and that we had to finish our desserts and drinks and pay immediately. This is our 3rd visit here and we had a lovely time up to this point with ok service. And were planning to move and have a drink outside once our time at the table was finished - which we thought was 4pm given the email to confirm booking said this. This has really disappointed us and we felt pressured to leave and will make us think twice before returning.

    It is a must for anyone who appreciates good food. And of course it's a special experience if you're a fan of Conor. A great, friendly team and a great atmosphere. The food was just fantastic. My next trip to Dublin will take me there again. Thanks for a great night!
