Our party of 6 enjoyed a great meal from set menu. It was a busy weekend for staff with lots happening in Ballsbridge area but service was first class.

They had hardly opened the doors when we arrived on Sunday at noon, but the staff welcomed us and we thoroughly enjoyed our brunch. My son said that it was the best Full Irish breakfast he'd ever had. We would definitely recommend it and look forward to another visit soon.

Asked for scrambled eggs and they must have mixed the fried egg they gave me in a bowl as they got my order wrong. My friend asked for garlic aoli prawn salad and instead got a strong mustard dressing.. The service was shockingly bad and when my friend complained, they were terribly rude and argumentative... Needless to say never again!!

We live locally and we heard that a new restaurant had opened here...we tried it last week for a late lunch/dinner...we were so impressed! Firstly, lovely pleasant and professional staff, the decor was so elegant and warm..using lots of books on shelves and white table clothes! The view from the front bay window is very pleasant and there is a... More

We loved the food the most on our visit as it was really tasty with great flavours, well presented and a good menu choice. We particularly loved the carrot and ginger amuse bouche which was the perfect appetizer. The chicken and duck liver parfait was delicious which came with toasted sourdough which was divine! The scallops were cooked to perfection... More

We were stuck for somewhere to eat in Ballsbridge on Saturday night before the Leinster game and happened across this restaurant without ever realising it was there. Luckily they were able to squeeze us in without a booking and I'm so glad they did, it's fabulous. I had the chicken pie and the chocolate fondant and I'd order it again... More

After reading many reviews I booked a table. I'm so glad I did. The welcome, food & ambience was superb. I would recommend this restaurant as... More

We arrived to a quiet restaurant @ 20:55 on Valentines night to be told the kitchen was closed. I asked when does it close and was told 21:00. I explained the time but was told last orders to the kitchen was 20:30. We left without a fuss. Surely closing time represents last order time!

Hidden above a pub and up a small staircase, the Girl and the Goose really is a hidden gem. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was unique yet still had Irish background. The menu was small yet varied and there was a full vegetarian menu and separate allergy Menus upon request. Everything from the bar made completely... More

Walked past this place on Friday evening, and decided to visit on the Saturday evening. Didn't disappoint, lovely unusual decor, loved the use of all the books. Fantastic food and would highly recommend to anyone.
