We popped in here just for an afternoon snack and split some starters. The service was quick, but the food was not fantastic. Nachos were a good portion size but the cheese had hardened so much that it seemed like they'd been sitting out for a long time. Location was convenient but glad we didn't get full meals.

Having dined here twice this year,they consistently are busy,with plenty of friendly staff,offer good set menus on busy rugby weekends,had a fantastic chicken parfait followed by Hereford beef,washed down with good red wines at very good prices for restaurants in any major city. Always a stock go to lunch/dinner venue,long may you continue.

Good value on the meal deal. Guinness and Coors were very tasty.No Beamish and beer prices are expensive like most of the pubs in... More

I went to this bar and it was one of the worst experiences I have ever had in Dublin. Food was awful and waiters really ill-mannered. Besides, customers are only drunk people trying to spoil your evening. I really wonder how the bouncers make the selection of people at the door. This is my fair and impartial opinion, so please...
