Truly the loveliest evening spent in Dublin. Has the feel of a local's restaurant, rather than anything by Grafton or Temple Bar which is mostly tourists. In a lovely neighborhood by the stadium, there's outdoor seating for those sunny days (I was lucky to be...More

Three friends enjoying a lovely meal on a quiet enough Thursday evening. One had the special, a striploin, the other a filet of beef, and I went for the fabulous Côte de boeuf. Côte de boeuf, at around 1 Kg (probably 800 grams cooked), was...More

Very nice staff tonight, and well prepared steak. Not cheap but worth it. I particularly appreciated having a bit of space around our table, so definitely will go back there

I absolutely loved this place. I ordered a cocktail "lavender lady" that was a perfect balance of delicious and unexpected flavors... it actually looked and tasted lavender! The watermelon and feta salad was great, but the steak was amazing. The staff was super nice and...More

The chophouse gastro pub was a great choice for a business dinner and all the staff were very accommodating by offering alternate vegetarian options for me. We had a great laugh when staff presumed my boss and I were a couple.

Another great find in Dublin. We arrived for an early dinner 5:40, without a reservation. We were offered a table in their conservatory but cautioned that there was a reservation at 7 pm. We jumped at the chance to eat in this Michelin mentioned establishment....More
