The food here was amazing! There were 7 of us for a meal and none of us had any complaints about any of the food we had. The service was friendly and attentive. After dinner we went upstairs to the bar which was very busy, but we managed to find a corner to get a table and a few tall... More

Seriously the best burgers around the city! No other burger comes close... not to mention the rest of the menu: the steak is tender & tasty, the chowder is SUPERB, the wings are amazing... and then thee is the wine - we had a Chianti Rufina, brilliant addition to our meal. I'm definitely coming back!

The interior is lovely, the staff friendly and the food to die for. The dessert was the best I have ever had in any Dublin restaurant.

Unusual setting for us we normally like our feet on land. The place was recommended by a local and didn't disappoint. From the start friendly and warming. Food was delicious and value for money, by far one of our best meals in Dublin fair city. Well worth the walk down.
