We have heard amazing things about this place from friends and family. The food was lovely but it simply did not meet the high expectations we had. I had the duck leg and while I enjoyed it I have had better. The starter I had was the crab dumplings which was delicious! We felt the portion sizes were a little... More

This is the second time my wife and I have used a voucher to eat at this restaurant and once again we came away satisfied with the experience. The a la carte menu is seasonal so every time we have visited the options have been different. For starters we had crab dumplings (nice and salty) and duck ham on mozzarella... More

Amazing restaurant with an amazing cuisine. The lasagna was the best I ever had. The monkfish was also perfectly cooked.

Went for brunch on a Sunday. Was packed out so glad we had booked in. They also had plenty of staff to meet the amount of people eating so service was still good. Huevos Rancheros had so many flavours going on with spot on guacamole. Washed down with a Bloody Mary which was perfectly made (wasn't overdone with pepper). Norwegian... More

No other word describes it, from the welcome we received when we entered right the way through, everything was top notch. Had the Early Bird which runs all night from Mon- Wed and 5-7 p.m the rest of the week. 2 courses 19.99 euros add a fiver for the third course. I had the fish tacos then hake with a... More

Great buzz - website suggests booking for pre-theater and dinner and nothing about brunch. So I arrived on 14 Jan 2017 to be told that I should have booked and that I could eat but would have to be out in 40mins. I suggested they make some changes to their webpage. Anyway the food was good is a little on... More

Went there last Saturday for an early dinner before heading to a show in Olympia theater. We started with 2 cocktails : watermelon Bellini and apple\elderflower sour, both nice. We then ordered ribs and rump and 16 oz ribeye and a bottle of red rioja to match our steaks. A bit overcooked on both steaks but not a big deal... More

Just home from eating here with my wife after hearing great things from friends, we were definitely not disappointed! We had three courses each and each course was honestly phenomenal! My fish taco starter was a highlight. We're already planning our next visit! One of the best meals I've had in Dublin.

Gorgeous food, gorgeous staff, it's always cozy even in the black depths of winter and you feel welcome and at home while eating a fabulous dinner. They have a really cheap early bird deal which runs all night off peak if you're tight for cash and want a fine dining experience, but the a la carte menu is super reasonable... More
