Food was enjoyable, didn't enjoy the wine but perhaps that was my bad selection. Staff did the job but with little warmth. Wouldn't go back, other places in Dublin have so much more ambiance.

Quite a small and cosy wine bar with large wine lists and a rather smaller list of very good food. The wine starts around the €25 mark and goes up, but quality is high. We went on a Saturday night after France had lost to...More

The place is a wine bar with a great choice od wines by the glass of per bottle. There are tapas-like platters and dishes. All in a warm setting. The service is far out. We drank delicious wine and ate salmon and pate, accompanied by nice bread and butter. I would highly recommend this place.
