Nice place to have a beer, the service was a bit lacking though. We waited for about 20 minutes for the waiter to show up as we wanted to order something else.

Had a slow lunch in this beautiful Location on Dawson St. Just up the street from Trinity College. Fabulous old houses (2 of them) converted into a restaurant. 300+ years old. Excellent service. Spent 11 million just getting it functional. Recommended.

It depends when for, we went on Sunday afternoon. No need then but I do believe it gets really busy during evenings/night so probably best to do so 😊
