Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I celebrated my birthday at Lemon&Duke with a few friends, and it was a delightful evening. We opted for the 2-course dinner set. The Rib Eye I chose for my main course was delicious, I couldn`t have made a better choice. The cocktails were also...really good. The atmosphere in our reserved area was wonderfully cosy, creating a more intimate space for our celebration. Throughout the night, Willian provided an excellent service. He warmly greeted us and was attentive to our needs, making sure we had everything to enjoy the evening. Overall, I had a very pleasant and memorable experience, thanks to Willian and the team. I highly recommend this establishment and I will definitely be returning.More

Popped in for cocktails before dinner elsewhere. The greeter was friendly, good range of cocktails and well poured Guinness. We didn’t eat so can’t say anything about that but other people seemed happy.

Food was not good, very expensive for what we got and rude staff. Our preference was to eat at little lemon but there was a private event booked. We had 2 drinks and 2 starters with 2 sides to share and the bill was €70....Felt compelled to leave a tip and regretted it as soon as we did. Stayed on for another drink and actually shoved out of the way when staff were passing with food to other tables. Left after thatMore

Bruna was a lovely server. She was a lot of fun and gave us some solid drink recommendations. We flew in from London to meet some American friends and Lemon & Duke was a nice spot to catch up. Would highly recommend!
