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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The best Schnitzel in Dublin! The staff are lovely too, and the whole place has a very European vibe. We’ve been many times food (and drinks!) are always excellent.

Visited the Pilsner bar and Restaurant 41 Ushers Quay. Dublin 8 on Saturday 16th Oct. We’d set up a Reunion night, 2 of us got there and asked for Vodka with coke. We had to leave and re-organize the reunion at this short notice because...my friend needed either a Coke Zero or 7up free for a mixer as she’s diabetic. I cannot understand how a bar (if you could call it that, more like an old eating house in Tallinn ) wouldn’t have these mixers in this day and age.More

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.
