“EXCELLENT!”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Somebody local recommended me this restaurant. We booked online a few hours before and we loved it. They offered us a nice table, service was impeccable and the food amazing. The fish platter is big and good, but the dishes of the day were even better. There was my colleague talking about the best Hake she ever had while I enjoyed exquisite scallops. When in Dublin and if you like seafood do not miss this – you would regret it!

“WOW!”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Brought my wife here for birthday celebrations,what a fabulous idea, even if I do say so myself. This place rocks. Don't use trip advisor very often but want make sure this place thrives, as it deserves to. Food, ambience, service,location,price........I could keep going.
These guys are doing something really different, with style. Highly Recommend.
