Excellent service and fantastic food. It was quite bussy but staff knows what to do. My chicken dish was full of flavour.

Nice small restaurant with good food. Only a smaller issue with the service. Ordered caprese and was served smoked mozzarella since the ordinary was out. Waiter was superb and changed it to another starter.

great early bird 21 euro for 3 courses , but even normal price this place is great value , the food is very nice and service has always been great don't worry about hens/sags parties ruining your dinner(as with many restaurants around temple bar) as they are catered for in the downstairs seating area.
