Stumbled across this place, food was good, prices were fair, beer selection great, service was perfect. Worth a look as an alternative option in Dublin. The location is a bit edgy, but that's better than temple bar. We were well looked after

The beer was good. A few brands you don't normally get in Dublin, bu the food was , frankly disappointing. Two dishes, goulash and a "stew" with dumplings. The meat and was thinly seasoned and the sauces, were likewise. Nor bad but not anything I...would order again. To many other places with much better food. And my wife is part Czech, so doubly disappointed.More

Definitely place to go if you want to have nice dinner, slovak/czeck specialties like gulash soup served in bowl of bread, "halusky" or schnitzel.

Ended in this Bar & Grill at around 6:00 PM. Very little attendance. I was served promptly. My Club Sandwich was served fats. Hot french fries (love it). Reasonable pricing.

Dashed in here with my little boy who was completely and visibly busting for a wee, thought no where would want to turn a little kid away for a "customers only" toilet policy. How wrong I could be, barmaid told us in no uncertain terms...that it was 100%, no he couldn't use their loo (the bar is a bit out of town so no public amenities around). So if you need to use the facilities, just tell them that the €3 of apple juice untouched on the bar that I had to buy to avoid an accident is yours. Got to love the famous Irish hospitalityMore

This is a good place for food and beer at a fair price for the quality, you don’t feel they have picked your pocket. There are many items on the menu, so something for most people, and the portions are OK. There is choice of...the classic Irish beer offerings and some nice European beers also, so again should suit most people. Give it a try, it’s OK and the prices and service are much better than in the more central bars.More

This was our first meal experience in Dublin. We can in with our luggage while awaiting our checkin. The service was good. The food (goulash, chicken schnitzel and burgers) was not anything fancy, but it was good.

I visited Dubin for the first time with my girlfriend from Scotland and on our way to checking into our accommodation we passed the restaruant and thought we definately need to go in. On our last night we went in and it was amazing. Staff...were really friendly and we were made to feel welcome. We were seated straightaway and our order was taken as soon as we were ready for it. The food was fantastic, I had the pork schnitzel and chips while my girlfriend had the chicken schnitzel and chips. They were fantastic, schnitzels and chips were AMAZING. When looking at the menu you might think it's expensive but it's actually quite cheap given the portions are HUGE. That meal filled us up for the whole night and if we weren't going home the next day we would definately have returned the next night, though we will be back in the future for sure. Also, the place is very nice inside with a great atmosphere.More

We went here twice during our stay and loved the food and service. The short ribs were excellent. Just great pub food served by an awesome waiter!
