Very good and tasty food. Usually crowded, but be patient! It's worth to wait a while for table. VERY good meals. Large range of beers. Prices - not low for sure, but worth to spend. Nice people!

We did not have reservations, but we were seated right away. I’m not sure if The Quay takes reservations.

Yes, you'll love it. Not too expensive, and right in the middle of all the Temple Bar nightlife. It will be great fun. Just eat here and then go out to all the Bars with music and fun
