Glad we eventually found this place. Trip advisor directions send you to the wrong street, Ellis St but is actually Ellis Quay on the river bank. Great place for a bit if you're visiting either Guinness or Jameson's. Staff suburb, really friendly, as is everyone in Dublin and super speedy. We went for the 3 course lunch deal, excellent value... More

Not only was the food amazing and beautifully cooked. The waitress asked if my toast to duck parfait ratio was OK. This is an important question and I don't think anyone's ever asked me before! She also advised me on the tiramasu for pudding because she could and has eaten 3 portions before. This was all good news to me!... More

After reading good reviews on here, me and a friend decided to travel slightly out of the centre to try out this bistro. We were NOT disappointed. The staff were brilliantly friendly and attentive. The food was equally sublime, I highly recommend the duck leg... unforgettable!! (The chocolate and peanut butter brownie is also heaven sent 🙌). The value for... More

My second time round with adult family. Excellent fare and great attention. Other members of the family introduced us to it and we were not disappointed. On the cold night I started with really hot soup and followed with pigs belly. Good attendance on the table. Some may notice that it is a walk from O' Connell Street but really... More
