    I’m gonna be real, this restaurant has very bomb food and I’m speaking with an African palate… I always get food for home when eating out, but every single dish was CLEARED. The sangria tastes beautiful. Bottom line the chefs are on their game and I will be coming back and bringing more customers.

    From the moment we stepped in the door the welcome was frosty, they couldn’t find our reservation and were somewhat rude. The service was slow and unattentive for a quiet restaurant. Food was average.

    The food here is amazing. Every plate we ordered was honestly so nice and we tried a lot. Per person to actually be full youd probably need one larger plate and two small. Great for sharing of course. There was a nice atmosphere, wasn’t too busy later in the evening. Would definitely return.

    We were a group of 8 people on the dinner. Food and wine was great! I really enjoyed everything I have chance to taste. I have few comments for the service though. It's been disappointing at times. We had to ask for water refills multiple times. It has repeated over the course of the dinner to the point I had to go to the bar to and bring it myself to the table. Managing the group I suppose is a bit more difficult than smaller parties. However, we ended up very confused with the orders as food for our table ended delivered in 2 batches... for first four people and for next four good 15 minutes later. It's a bit awkward when only part of the group receives their orders and other group sit at the same table awaiting theirs.

    The place is regular but the music they play is totally out of place. As a speaking Spanish person, I noticed that they play music that is not according to the place's ambiance. The food is VERY regular, don't expect something outstanding. The personnel is nice but they don't know the menu and seem lost when you ask them questions regarding the food or the wines.

    The food and service was great but unfortunately the restaurant was freezing cold, and couldn't enjoy my dining experience. We had our coats on the whole time. Told the staff but they said was nothing they could do. It is January. Such a disappointment in comparison to their other branches.

    Food nothing too crazy, of course too expensive for Spanish food but I understand it’s just because Dublin is expensive. Sangria was lovely. The restaurant was very cold, and the bathrooms even more.
