I was there on Monday 27th of February with my family for dinner. The food was delicious and the restaurant wasnt too busy with few tables only. We were siting on the ground floor and two waitresses were working. On our arrival although not too busy we had to wave inorder to get the waitresses attention as they were talking... More

My family had the lamb shank which they rated highly rated, It was 18 euro for a 2 course and around 22 for 3 course. The service was fantastic, staff very... More

With the ten thousand step mark on Madam's pedometer passed not long after lunch the mood had darkened by 6pm and there was an immediate requirement for sustenance before our march along the banks of the Liffy to take in Jack Whitehall at the 3arena. Into the wine, our starters soon appeared and the mood lightened. Cheese has always proved... More

This time we had Garlic Mushrooms, delicious, 3 mains, Lamb Shank, Steak and Pollo Sciliano, followed by Tiramisu. All delicious, and of... More

We went there at noon and was empty, the lady was very kind. Wings are amazing, it feels like when you make it yourself in a bbq ! Very very good and the food feels very natural and fresh. Kind of slow kitchen but was ok. Extra point for the image of the lady at the reception !

Great atmosphere and service! The food was delicious, and their vegan lasagne was impressive. It was good to find somewhere that catered for vegans. Will definitely go back here again!

At our last evening in Dublin, my girlfriend decided to go for an Italian dinner. After looking up some restaurants near our hotel, we found this restaurant. As we were so early, we had to chance to take an early bird menu (as in many other restaurants in the city). Because we didn't want a starter, the kind waitress proposed... More
