Even when his manager told him to remember we were not the only table in that night! He was attentive to every... More

We came in here to get some "traditional" Irish fare and were pleasantly surprised by the taste and quality. We expected that given its location, right at Temple Bar, that they'd charge a fortune for so-so food. But wow. We had a starter each, all of which were nice but nothing special. But our main courses were really great. The... More

It was a decent restaurant on a crowded Friday night in Dublin--and one of the few in the Temple Bar area that did not require a booking or have a long wait. Food was good, but nothing special. Kids' menu was decent...service was friendly, but took a looooong time to get the bill after the meal. Overall it is not... More

Went for a nice catch up with friends, ordered food and drinks, and the second we finished eating she brought the bill and asked us to leave, so rude! We had only spent a total of half an hour there and still had drinks left, we didn't even ask for the bill as we would've ordered more.... definitely didn't feel... More

We had a great lunch here. I had the chowder and mussels and my wife had the Chicken Caesar salad. We shared a bowl of fries and had some light refreshment. Very good quality and quick and friendly service. Excellent value!!
