                                    Came here with a friend for my birthday and everything was fantastic. Staff were so lovely and even brought out a little lightbox with happy birthday written on it for the table. The food and cocktails were delicious and very well priced. Would definitely recommend

                                    We booked a table on the occasion of our anniversary. There is an option under "opentable reservations" to select which occasion you will be attending the venue, alas it was our 3 year anniversary. The place is fantastic, we regurarly come here. But what is the point of the system if upon arriving they never offered or even acnowledged/asked whether it is the occasion. We were seated in a poorly manner between another 2 couples even though there were unreserved seats in another section and we had to look after that ourselves that we are seated. Again, fantastic place, would definitely recommend it to anybody due to the food and the ambience. But the whole open table system is a mockery, as you will likely find a better seating simply walking in on most given evenings.

                                    The food was delicious and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Only thing that stopped me rating 5 out of 5 for everything was that there was another table squeezed in behind ours that made the area feel a bit squashed

                                    Fantastic food and quirky place, also one of the best Bloody Mary I've ever had. Really nice personnel

                                    Had an absolute blast of a time here!! Would so recommend to anyone looking for a fun night with the “gals”. Didn’t know what to expect as I had just booked it randomly but this place certainly didn’t disappoint. The vibe of the place was immaculate and with vibrant decor and the most friendly staff!! Food was great, and prices were also great considering we’re in the middle of Dublin. 10/10 would recommend and I can’t wait to go back!! Thank you everyone

                                    I love this place. I wish there were more like it in Dublin. The cocktails are great and the staff is friendly. The interior deco is pretty cool. I would totally recommend it.

                                    Can’t believe I paid €16 for small bowl of pulled pork nachos & all I got was a lump of fat & a few nachos chips , food wasn’t great at all , we had to go to another place afterwards to get food (Oscars next door ) mimosas were definitely watered down too ! also our table was booked for 3:30 & we didn’t get our menus until 3:50 , when we highlighted this to our waitress she said she has to seat everyone first before giving us our menus , I won’t be returning to thundercut alley unfortunately

                                    Had a lovely brunch and cocktail here on Saturday. The service was great. The food was lovely. The music was pretty loud for a Saturday afternoon and it was hard to talk over it, I'd recommend it be a bit less so!! Overall, love this place and definitely recommend. A great spot for food and drinks before/after the a trip to The Lighthouse Cinema.
