This place was highly recommended to us but was probably my least favourite that we visited. The menu was a bit odd. I settled on the pasta and that was nice. Cosy place but was expensive for what we had.

This was my first visit after hearing a lot about this place since it opened. We were seated on time and quickly given menus and our order taken. The breads/dips arrived quickly but the dips were disappointing, it was hard to distinguish one from the other. The starters were fine, not particularly flavoursome and very small (which I thought was... More

This beautiful place is busy so book a table to avoid disappointment because when you step inside the tantalising smell will leave your mouth watering! Best steak I've ever had, seared by the chef and presented on a cooking stone for you to finish to your preference! Cocktail bar upstairs is also worth a visit! Staff are very friendly and... More

We had to eat on the bottom floor which is a bit run down, the food was just as regular as the service. Very expensive for what it is and what it offers.

This is a sure fire bet for a night out in Dublin, everything is good, you could start at the top of the list and keep going. Steak is great.

We came to celebrate my girlfriends birthday - from the moment we arrived service was aloof to the point of being rude. We were seated under the stairs and we asked if the table could be moved slightly, the guy was barely listening. On second asking he said yes and left us to move table ourselves. It was a bit...

The food tasted absolutely amazing, and it was clear that the ingredients were fresh and 'clean'. From starters to desserts the taste and presentation of the dishes were phenomenal. Highly recommend! Try the (sugar free!) chocolate 'soup' for dessert.

Popped In here when we were passing during the day to make a reservation for later that night. After a day of plenty g&t in temple bar we went for dinner and wine. We were sat upstairs. The maître d' was absolutely excellent and kept us entertained all night. Amazing service from all the team. My two friends had steaks... More

Excellent restaurant in a good location. Great food and very friendly / efficient staff. Fab decor and atmosphere in the upstairs bar where we retired for our Cocktails (which were also very good). I can't speak of their normal prices as we were on a 'special deal' which represented really excellent value for money. Major problem on our visit was... More
