Never ever book online with them. They charge you 10€ per person and they tell you they will use that money for your bill when you arrive but they dont and there is no refund. I paid my bill and still they charged me 30€...on my card. They didn’t answer my emails when I tried to get my refund. Plus they treat better other people! Dont go , there are way better places in Dublin. Like the Church or Candem. Or the shelbourne bar. Avoid this place if you dont want to lose moneyMore

The hostess was lovely, but this was an absolutely terrible experience. The pizza and chicken orders were an absolute joke, very small in size and honestly tasted woeful. The cocktails were overpriced. Very surprised, I went for a brunch deal prior to the pandemic (about...august of 2019) and it was really good food wise. Not anymore sadly....More

Ordered a pizza for €14 and when it came it was the size of my hand and looked like it came from a supermarket. Ridiculous. The cocktails were also very small for the price you pay. There are better food and drinks available for much...less nearby, don’t bother.More

My friend and I went dining there and it was the worst experience that we ever had. First of all we asked the server if we can have any tea and coffee(instead of alcoholic drinks),and she said that they don't serve hot beverages,so we got...2 non-alcoholic mojitos,which were 6 euro at the end. 5 minutes after,we saw the server bringing coffee to another table. Second of all,the pizza that I got was terrible. It didn't even look like a pizza. It felt like everything was just thrown on the top and it was 14 euro (picture is attached on the bottom).I am very sorry,but 14 euro for this is shocking. The third thing is that there was no cutlery or tissues provided,which is a bit shocking for such a place. Overall,its the worst restaurant that I have ever attended.More

Yesterday, my friend and I arrived in Farrier draper, busy place. But the waiters are so nice, very funny! I don’t know the name of our waiter ( long hair ) and another young fella very friendly.

My friend & I visited on Saturday evening and had a delightful experience. It was evident the measures put in place to protect both staff & customers with the staff wearing PPE. We requested a seat on the terrace & the staff organised this quickly...for us. Conor served us all night and was super attentive and the cocktails were delicious!More

I booked a table and ordered finger food for 15 people in this place to celebrate my birthday. When I arrived no one came to me and I needed to find the table by myself, when I found it was three separate small tables with...not enough room to everyone and they placed us in a very bad space. The music was very loud so we couldn’t talk without screaming. When the finger food came I was really embarrassed, they sent 4 small trays with starters that wouldn’t be enough for everyone, some guests couldn’t even try it, they charged me almost 200,00 euros for that “finger food”. Terrible experience, frustrating and embarrassing, first and last time in this place. They simply spoiled our night, my night. Don’t go to this place to celebrate a special date.More
