Had a beautiful meal here a week ago. Could not fault it, nice staff and wine was good too. Lovely atmosphere and loved how private it was for the diners.

The only problem with this place was that we only stumbled upon it on our last night in Dublin. Service, food and wine were perfect with nothing but praise coming from our table, with the venison being put as the best ever tasted. As we come from the Highlands of Scotland that is praise indeed!

Centrally located on the north side of the Liffey this pub grub restaurant doesn't create any waves. Seating is very cramped and menu unimaginative. Two course dinner €21.95 offered two Glutenfree options and I don't know if I would even trust those! Bathrooms were downstairs. Won't be going back as there is such much more on offer in Dublin City... More

Arranged to meet my Brother and his Wife before they went to the airport via Busaras. We went in without a reservation circa 6pm. We were seated straight away and opted for the pre theatre menu. We all went for main course of fish and chips and wow it was tasty. We were under time pressure, but the food arrived... More

This in my view is a pub/bar that serves mediocre food. The place doesn't do its self any favours, the interior is tacky and the music being played is also tacky and extremely loud. I wouldn't recommend this place and I won't be coming back. Rude but true...

Pleasant surroundings though tables quite tight together, not much privacy! Salmon starter not at all what I expected. It presented very well but instead of smoked salmon I received crispy bites of grey skin of salmon on a bed of cous cous and beans with lovely sweet tomatoes and beetroot. My Hubble had Thai fish cakes which were very tasty.... More

Had a nice lunch here with some friends, Lovely open chicken sandwiches on sour dough bread and they came with salad and fries. All three of us agreed it was very good. Nice house wine. Friendly staff. Will call again.

With so many places to eat in Dublin, I won't be eating here again. Rubbery tasteless fish with an excuse of a sauce. Our waitress was nice and friendly I must say.

Thank Kieran B
