Wonderful warm sunny weather on a Friday night can mean a busy restaurant in a prime location and we experienced this on a recent Friday. Management and staff seemed overwelmed and many tables in the restaurant still required cleaning when we arrived. Terraced Garden looked as if about 100 patrons were dinng and having drinks and inside restaurant was busy...

Fish restaurant. A new restaurant which has been beautifully decorated. Had a lovely starter of fish cakes here. 2 nice small fish cakes - correct size. The freshest piece of hake that I've had in a long time. Absolutely delicious. Was let down by overcooked peas that had no purpose - they were neither mushy nor minty. And a lovely...

The Daube (stew) is great comfort food usually with great sized portions but this...

I went here with my partner on Sat 25th March, we arrived at 6:45 and yes it was busy, but really no excuse for what unfolded, and to add to my disappointment I had my first date here with my partner 4 years ago around this time, so it was like an anniversary return visit. Well we were left unattended...

We tried Fish, the new restaurant in the refurbished Twelfth Lock Hotel, on the fanciful named Castleknock Marina. We booked for 8 and were promptly taken to our table. It's fair to say I was already in good mood as Ireland had just beaten a England in Aviva, taking the wheels of the Chariot. We were warmly welcomed and the...
