Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

These guys helped us out last minute as we were let down from our events company we had. They came to the rescue. Couldn't be more helpful. Food was beautiful and amazing cocktails. Beautifully building and decor. We all had such a brilliant time. Thanks...so much to Jenny and her team that day ❤️More

In our first night in Dublin, we had a very nice time dining here. Good food, music and overall vibe. Mexicalan was a great host!

This looked a good place for drinks and a snack. The table was really rickety . cocktails were fine but white wine was war. Calamari and chips fr too salty to eat. My husband ordered pizza and was served chicken goujons. True they replace them.... Overall not a place to go back to.More

Disappointing visit and wouldnt return. Food is very poor quality and very expensive. I would find it hard to believe that a chef produced it. Staff ok but they randomly decided to tell different tables that they had to finish up and leave in an...hour. despite never been told that there was a time limit when booking. Service charge added to bill without warning too. Way better options around.More

They did not have ginger beer which was the first time I experienced this. The Negroni was good, ambiance would be better later at night I am sure. It was crowded enough, but was a little dusty where we were sat. Overall cool vibe and...ok drinks.More

We spent a fantastic afternoon and evening here as part of my daughter’s hen party. Prosecco on arrival and then a fabulous lunch and great cocktails. Service was great, nothing was too much trouble and they even loved our dancing. Thank you for helping make...it such a special day. We will be back.More

Visited on a Sunday afternoon expecting to eat in the restaurant. The place looked like it hadn’t been cleaned after a busy Saturday night. Glasses were dirty, table not wiped, toilets filthy. Had a drink and left. If the place is that dirty I’m certainly...not trusting the kitchen Kip.More

The staff were friendly enough and we were quickly shown to an available seating area upon arrival. We ordered a cocktail each, both carrying a €12 price tag. The drinks arrived promptly but mine (an old fashioned) was only partially-filled and my wife's (a passionfruit...martini) had clearly been spilled when carrying it from the bar. The pool of fruit puree and vodka under the cocktail glass on the tray was pretty evident and all the more obvious given that the stem was left sticky. I reckon there was a good €2-worth of cocktail left on the tray! I'm being facetious. The point I'm making is that the spillage wasn't even acknowledged and that's poor. We left after one drink.More

Booked my 30th here and had to pay 200 euro deposit. When I arrived they said my booking was not there even though I had rang a couple of days before hand to confirm. The person I spoke to on the phone also told me...that my 200 euro will go towards a drink package and I can be told more about this on the night. When I asked about this the guy told me that had to be booked way in advance and i couldn’t get any package. We also got put down in the restaurant I had to be asked twice to be moved as I had booked upstairs.More

Popped in here for a bite to eat and quick drink while exploring the area. We were attracted by the front entrance and extremely colorful bar area behind it. It was quite enough when we arrived but soon began to fill up with the after...work drinks crowd. We sampled a couple of the starters and some cocktails, all were extremely good. There is meant to be a pretty lively night time vibe here which we will have to check out in the future.More

This is a fabulous wine bar in the centre of Dublin. The decor is so opulent and warm, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable (especially Kelly who looked after us so well, she even took some photos for us). I recommend the pizzas for an...afternoon snack with a glass of great wine 🍷More

This stylish old fashioned bar is a great option to switch up with the numerous pubs available in Dublin. The ambiance, decor and music is super. One of the rooms has a castle feel with its vintage furniture, wall-covered paintings and lit chimney. Good for...groups of friends or even couples who can sit in the romantic window nests. And the staff is great, our waitress was extremely nice and so was the host. Only negative point is the short list of drinks.More

Lovely surroundings, cocktails, finger food & service. Unfortunately Covid compliance was very poor. Not all our Covid certs were checked and most of the staff were not wearing masks. We raised our concern with the manager who went round and asked all the staff to...wear masks. However it later became clear that once staff moved away from the area we were sitting in a number of them then removed their masks. We won’t be going back.More
