Nice bar, poor service
Jul 2021 • Couples
We were guests of the temple bar hotel so could sit inside. Nice layout and cocktails were good. Unfortunately the bar/service staff were not helpful or attentive. We waited 25 mins for our order to be taken on two occasions. The general manager in the bar was helpful and recognised promptly that we had been waiting. He had our drinks made in minutes and apologised genuinely.
A nice bar with a good manager, but unfortunately staff are letting the establishment down.

So disappointing
Jun 2021 • Couples
We visited this bar for some bar food whilst staying at the Hard Rock hotel. We had tried a couple of other places along Temple Bar beforehand but they were all prebooked. We arrived at the door of Buskers and asked if they had a table, felt very lucky that they did. Now I know why. The food was very very poor. Seems to be anything that can be deep fried on the menu and I have had superior food in the work canteen. Very cheap ingredients and definitely not worth the money. Customer service was really good and it is such a pity that the food is letting them down. Drinks are also good. Unfortunately you cannot sit into restaurants at the minute in dublin and can only eat outside so you are limited to the restaurants that have some outdoor seating. Do yourself a favour and precook one of the other restaurants or if you haven’t a chance to do that go to McDonalds instead. Save your restaurant money for elsewhere.

All good but the manager
Dec 2020 • Friends
Great place, Paula and Julia were very friendly and always checking on us. But I have to be honest that you’re manager Bogdam is not at all qualified for such position, not friendly at all and sometimes even rude, the worst part of our experience for sure. But food and the rest of the staff were great!

TERRIBLE
Dec 2020
Poor service, very unprofesional downstairs. this included the waitress' scowling when we wanted to order something that they had in the bar upstairs (which shouldn't be a problem but they admitted they were too lazy to go upstairs and grab it). Rude manager who kept coming over to us bothering us. got told false information about the food we ordered (this is minor but they gave us no knives/ forks, napkins, or sauces with our food) and much much more! made us feel really uncomfortable and basically acted like they wanted us out from the start. a group of girls beside us also left early I don't know the exact reason why but it looked like they were having trouble too, we were just stupid enough to stay a bit longer. retrain staff and tell managers to be polite. (even another manager who never talked to us kept pointing at us and him and the waitress' laughing from across the room. This all happened in the downstairs part btw we didn't get to experience the upstairs but hopefully it's a bit better than downstairs. This isn't even everything that happened.

Terrible experience

This was my food. Waiter spat in my face and told me to come to the bathroom and suck him off if I wanted a drink. Won’t be returning.

Food and drinks great - manager was nasty to staff
Sep 2020 • Family
We arrived when the bar had just opened and they were still setting up which was fine. However the manager was so rude and disrespectful to staff right in front of us. He was shouting at staff members over a social media post and didn’t even attempt to pull the staff to the side and say what he had to say. Our party felt really sorry for the staff as no one should be spoken to like that in work. We felt as if the staff members were then walking on egg shells for the rest of the time that we were there in fear that they would get told off for something else by their manager.

Loved the vibe here! Much better than Temple Bar imo
Feb 2020 • Friends
We stopped here after going to Temple Bar and leaving because it was so crowded. It wasn’t as crowded in here but still a lot of fun. We ordered drinks and danced to the live music they had courtesy of a guy named the Sheriff! They have live music all throughout the night.
