It was really disappointing getting a phone call on the day before to tell me the place was being renovated and it was closed for the 20th. I jad to find somewhere else to celebrate my birthday, really shame

Well worth the visit. Staff service & food excellent.

Menu was not as advertised on restaurant's website, would not have gone if we had seen the menu in advance. For a sharing, Asian food type meal Yamamori Izakaya on George's St is by far a better option. Would still rate as good, just better options available.

The food was good. The service was really good, everybody very attentive what let me very happy to be there. I was celebrating my birthday and after dinner there was a DJ so we could have a little more fun.

Wasn't happy with service and food and drink was overpriced for what you get.

The decor does not know what to be at, industrial/urban miser. Food good waiting staff not.

The food was gorgeous. The waiter was rude. I'd go back only for that reason. He showed no interest in serving our table. When he called out the dishes he turned his head away and looked out the window so we couldn't even hear him calling them out. There was four at the table and as soon as one person was finished he collected their plate, rather than waiting for everyone to finish.

I would have understood if the restaurant was busy but it was empty inside, only one other table was being used.

Would I recommend it to a friend, yes if they did takeaway food!

I found the meeting house atmosphere to be lively, however the food didn't match up. It was quite bland lacking in flavour, the tempura prawns were the best thing we ordered but the others were bland and tasteless. We found ourselves eating the food purely out of not wanting to waste it. Due to it being a special occasion I wished the food would've been better!

Good atmosphere yet bland food.

A warm, welcoming venue with good staff, good value and very tasty food. The live music on the terrace was excellent whilst the music inside was good there were a couple of times it veered into the screechy!

Restaurant is designed more for a night out rather than a pleasant eating experience. Service was good and food was nicely flavoured. Good selection on menu and great choice for vegetarians.
However it is recommended that you have at least 3 dishes and portion sizes reflect that but prices don't. Food doesn't merit the cost they are charging for it and 3 dishes would set you back 28 euro minimum.

The service was unbeatable, we were an awkward bunch with one person arriving late and also brought an extra person along.
The staff quickly arranged extra seating and our order arrived quickly to make up for the lost time

Temple bar surprised me once more. More and more good places around. This one was good, actually very good. Something bit bigger than tapas but smaller than main (actually, you can find a main this size in some places). 54€ for 6plates and I think (correct me if I'm wrong) Sunday it's a day when you can have very same combination for 34€. It's good because it's not boring. We had mini burgers each (two mini burgers with nice soft bit sweet bun and sauce on the side), very soft and juicy mini steak with no fat cooked medium, crab salad, prawn salad (I wasn't crazy about them) and prawn curry which was very tasty as well. I will definitely come back

Have eaten here a few times and it has always been excellent. The food is superb- a huge selection of really tasty dishes to try. Ambience is very relaxed. Staff are patient and helpful. Took a group of 7 work colleagues here last week and they were all extremely impressed. Our Brazilian waitress was really helpful and gave great advice on which dishes to try. Will be back there again soon.....

The experience was beyond my expectations. The food is delicious. The idea that you can have different small dishes is amazing. I highly recommend it.
