Not one to take the time to make reviews but felt this experience warranted one. From the moment we were greeted by the Manager/Owner to our coffee at the end of the evening the whole experience was top notch. Four of us dined and we all raced about our starters, mains and desserts. Thank you Wild Goose.

An enjoyable evening for 4 people. Disappointed that choice of food was restricted to one of two set menus; no switching. Also, main course meat dishes were only available on the more expensive menu. That said, we all enjoyed what we ate. Although one of our party was late to arrive, we were never under pressure to order or to finish, which we appreciated.

We are frequently visiting this little gem, just above O'Brines pub. Always the same quality of food, service and atmosphere. Can't really fault it. Very good when you are visiting with kids. Our kids loved the non-alcoholic mocktails they have been offered. We will be back soon. Thank you again

First time but definitely not my last visit. Beautiful ambience. Lovely welcome. Pleasant but not pushy staff. Room temp was good for a cold Feb night and the creme brulee was the best ever! Delicious meal. My husband enjoyed the mac n cheese side and the sauce with my halibut was delish!

About the restaurant


Suesey Street promises good times in the bar, great food from the kitchen and a relaxed vibe on the terrace. Harking back to the 1700s, Suesey Street was the original name of Leeson Street and now Dublin’s new social destination.

we had a great night. my partner is dairy free and although they did not have specific options they were able to adjust the menu to accommodate. i had the pork belly to start which was fantastic; it is dish i always order if it is on any menu and this was one of the best. the staff were great - they did a lot of checking to see if everything was going well but i appreciate it can be a hard balance between hassling/ignoring.

South William Street
About the restaurant
Our story is inspired by the adventure that is Track 61, an abandoned underground platform under the famous Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York. This platform allowed VIPs to enter the hotel in a more private manner via a specially built private golden lift. In 1965 the platform was used by the famous pop artist Andy Warhol for his ‘underground party’. The quest for the platform, known as Track 61 has become a holy grail for many urban explorers.

Visit us @ 27 South William street and discover the holly grail for the urban foodies!

The appetizers were yummy and so was the pasta and fish (perfectly cooked) but my husbands steak wasn’t great. Dinner was expensive and there are better options at this price point.
