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.

On the 2nd of July we had a Caesar salad and Chicken cajun salad for takeaway with spicy potatoes on the side. I can tell you, they were the most amazing and full of flavor salads that you can taste. Everything was so fresh and...tasty!!!!! The chicken was grilled and seasoned and the potatoes soooo goood!!!!! The owner of the cafe was so nice and friendly. He even gave us from the house few pieces of Baclava which was mouthwatering! It was the most amazing experience! I would definitely recommend Keshk Cafe for their extremely good service and food!More

This place is right next to the river and was a great little find as it was close to hotel. We went in for a little lunch and a coffee and can’t say anything was such a surprise. Great staff great food great coffee. The...baklava was really great. We went back next morning for breakfast too and once again it was great with a varied option of breakfast so you really can’t go wrong here. I will definitely be back.More

Went there with my boss (wife). Had Maghmour, a traditional slow simmering stew of aubergines, chickpeas, onions, fresh mint and tomato sauce. The boss had a moussaka. Both were excellent. Accompanied with a nice bottle of red wine bought in off-licence around the corner. No...corkage charged. Will be back. Highly recommend Keshk.More

Such a warm welcome and hearty generous portions of food. We stumbled across this gem while on a city break in Dublin and we are so glad we did. Very clean and a lovely ambience - the staff are superb, attentive, friendly and approachable. Good...value given the quality of the service, portions and setting. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast here. Thank you 😊More

Popped in on our off chance whilst visiting Dublin for the rugby. WOW.. what a find . Welcomed on entrance by a happy , smiley waitress . Ordered two meals - chicken skewers and tuna baguette. Both meals out of this world . The manager...served the meals and seems a bubbly , welcoming character and brilliant host . The potatoes and sauce that were offered to us were absolutely AMAZING. Chicken well seasoned and the tuna melt was perfect. Definatly a place I would recommend!More

Delicious food, generous servings, lovely presentation, byo wine. Excellent service, our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Prices very reasonable given the quality and size of the portions (especially considering byo wine). The vibe and atmosphere was lovely. There's nothing I would change!

Yes - it's possible. I asked for my chicken dish and salad starter to be gluten free and they were both prepared for me without gluten. And both were delicious!
