Have visited the Market Bar on numerous occasions when meeting up with friends. The tapas are yummy and there is a good range of choice for vegetarians. They also do a great early bird deal of any two small tapas and a drink for €15, so if there were two of you eating it is nice to be able to get a taste of all four dishes.

The Market Bar also caters quite well for young children, providing them with a picture to colour in and colouring pencils. The layout is spacious and large so there is lots of room to accommodate buggies, etc.

It can get quite busy in the evening time and as they only take bookings for larger groups, you may be waiting a little while before getting seated. However, it is worth the wait!

I went for dineer last Friday with my friends. We asked for a table for 6 and the first answer from the waiter was that we only had 1.5h to eat, and we were not allowed to be longer than that in the table - we said that we would ask for more drinks or whatever but didnt help.
I understand it is a place to eat and people can not spend hours in a table just with a couple of drinks, but this were not our case! We were planning to eat, including desserts and then a couple of rounds of drinks.
Anyways, in the end we stayed in our table all the time we wanted, I think that more than 4 hours! But the waiter could have been nicer since the beggining!
The food was average, nothing really special, but is not expensive either.

Have eaten here before, great tapas. Visited their upstairs bar this time. Nice loud atmosphere, decent cocktails. Friendly staff. Clean toilets which is always nice to see in such a busy place.

I went there yesterday and ordered the pizza of the day. 9€ for a small pizza clearly made on an industrial base, with cheap quality products on it. I found that a bit too much especially since I went to Jamie Oliver's pizza restaurant in Cambridge last week and only paid £10 for both a home made pizza with very good quality ingredients on it AND a home made tomato mozzarella di buffala salad. Never again! The reason I don't give one star (or whatever they're called) is because the venue itself is nice.
