Really nice setting. Hidden from the main area of Dublin but well worth the walk too. Great food and great service

Small intimate yet very relaxed atmosphere to this lovely restaurant. We brought some friends from China on their first visit to Dublin and they loved it. The waiter couldn't have been more helpful and it was appreciated that he dealt with their requests in a discreet way. Lovely evening and to top it all off the food was delicious.

Wonderful food and service in a lovely, comfortable setting. Wine and beer both very nice, with a taste of two wines offered to make selection easy. Daily special fish was cooked beautifully and very tasty. Fish and chips hit the spot! We highly recommend and look forward to returning!

If there was some light music being played it would dampen the sound of the kitchen. The steak I had was perfection and the host was a true gentleman. Delightful meal and I will be returning very soon

Lovely food & friendly staff. Had the early bird menu on Saturday (booking was for 5.30) as the choices on the menu suited us. The restaurant was quite at that time. A drink in O’brien before and after the meal made for a lovely evening/night! Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
