We stopped in for an impromptu lunch. The seafood was very good and fresh. That atmosphere was relaxing. The table settings were unique and some were re-purposed items done very smartly. We just ate here this one time, but we'll return on our future trips.

We had a Groupon voucher for the Fish Shack. Rang to book a table but they don't do reservations. The voucher was for three courses (tea/coffee is not a course!) and a glass of wine or beer. For starters we both got the soup. I was expecting a seafood chowder rather than a soup so I was quite surprised when... More

Walked in office the street St Patrick's day. Had to return 30 minutes later but they found us a table. Good selection of sea food. Staff really helpful and friendly. Excellent value for money and great location in the middle of Temple Bar. Only suggestion would be a wider beer selection. Thanks.

Best mussels we've had before, looked after by an enthusiastic and passionate manager, great food, location and atmosphere - only let down was that they had run out of lobster (hint - get there early)!

The fish shack is a lovely relaxing eatery. There is a great selection of tasty fish dishes. The special boards are brilliant. I had the pleasure of trying RayWing for the first time. My sister had the Seafood Medley and it had a great selection of shellfish. Had such a great experience and would highly recommend to anyone. No bookings... More

Just a chance visit provided us with fabulous food and service in the most pleasant surroundings. This is a place with a simple menu of high standard fish. Service was excellent and great fun . Cleanliness was a huge feature which we enjoyed too. Certainly an easy place to fully recommend. Enjoy!
