This restaurant was recommended to us by two Dubliners. It wasn't easy to get a reservation, though the restaurant had many open tables when we arrived mid-evening. The menu was lovely, but they were out of a few items. Still, we enjoyed our dinner very...More

Only ok food wise. Service was " get them in and get them out" style. Bums on seats. Our waiter rushed us between service and overlooked our table. Won't be in a hurry back.

Used to be something special for sea food but not now. Felt like a tourist trap, though the dinning room is better looking than the outside! Trouble was all our seafood tasted of the fridge and not the sea! Dressed crab @ 14.50 was passable,...More
