    Kings and queens would not be disappointed at this restaurant. The meat is fabulous, there's a huge selection of red wine, the service is fast and friendly and there is a busy-but-intimate atmosphere. Well worth the price.

    Excellent. Food was delicious as were the drinks. Really enjoyed our evening here. I did ask for a candle for my wife’s bday dessert in my notes but that didn’t happen but I can’t say anything other than we loved it.

    Top class food with great service and friendly staff, the only downside was the restaurant is very small so tables are very close together and the room feels crowded.

    Exceptionally friendly service and quality of food stood out. Fantastic steaks and the Tuna Tostados were some of the best food I've had in Dublin. Might add another couple of bottled beer options to the menu, but the wine list is extensive and reasonable Overall a 5-star review and would strongly recommend and will be back

    Great food but service very slow. Waited over an hour for the food and the first dish arrived 10 minutes before everybody else's food. We were then rushed out because they needed the table back for the next booking before we even had time to finish dessert

Our waitress was charm personified which is always such a positive addition to any dining experience. We enjoyed every morsel of food that crossed our lips! Will definitely be back!
