The staff couldn’t have been friendlier, the food was delicious and brought to the table very quickly. We had the sangria and it was very nice, outdoor seating area in the back of the restaurant was great with a lovely atmosphere. Couldn’t recommend this place...any more.More

So disappointed at our last visit. We have been here so many times and always loved it. We were seated in the outside area that is fully covered, this was fine as the heating was on and it was warm. It was strange because about...4-5 groups came after us and were all seated at tables next to each other. We waited 40 minutes for our food to come to the table and we were starving at this stage. The portions have definitely been reduced, the portobello mushroom used to be the size of the dish but I got 1 button mushroom which was about 1/4 of the plate. The steak was over cooked, tiny and served on what could only be described as a crouton, there were two strands of what looked like watercress as a garnish and they were totally dried up as if left under the lights too long. The paella rice was definitely not freshly made and was really overcooked, I really think it was made the previous day and reheated. The waitress was very nice but also busy so didn’t get to check on us. We ate everything as we were so hungry so paid in full. The waitress said she would talk to the chef but didn’t have time to ask any details as she was so busy. I really hope things improve as we love this restaurant so will come back again.More

I have always been a fan of the Port House chain and reviewed their new opening 'Cava' recently but definitely think aside from their one on South William Street I wouldn't bother. After some Christmas shopping last week, my partner and I got a table...in here for late on Wednesday night. The place was exceptionally busy and we did have to wait some time to be shown to our table which was outside in a converted patio area which was chilly with poor acoustics, there was a large table of girls beside us who we had to shout to be heard over. Menu looks to have changed slightly but some of the old favourites such as padron peppers still make an appearance. We ordered a good selection and went with 2 extra dishes just to cover all bases. The food that arrived was described by my partner as bog standard party food and he wasnt wrong. A few chunky, anemic potatoes made up the 'patas bravas' with a thimble full of sauce on the side. 5 padron peppers on one plate and a tiny hamburger on another - if you're trying to reduce your portion size here's a good place to start. I ordered a chorizo bocadillo which was an overpriced hotdog. Overall was a disappointing experience, stopping on the way home for a mcflurry to fill the gap.More

I ordered €100 worth of food online at 17.30 and specified that I wanted to collect it at 18.30. When I turned up to collect it at 18.30 I was told by the host that he was going to fetch it from the kitchen. I...never saw him again. A queue of approximately 4 or 5 other customers now started to wait behind me to collect their orders too. At 18.45 a different member of staff came to the door and handed me the food. No apologies or explanations despite keeping me waiting for 15 minutes in the cold and rain. I took the food home and half the dishes were cold. The portions were pretty miserable too. If you are going to do a takeaway service at least tailor the portion sizes to reflect the restaurant prices. The portions would be totally fine if you were paying to sit and eat them while they were fresh and hot in the restaurant but you need to make them a little more generous for a takeaway offering. All in all a pretty crappy experience and definitely not one I would recommend.More

Visit made during Covid level 3 which has a time limit and was to celebrate a 33rd wedding anniversary. Service was slow but once order was placed the food arrived promptly. Best dish was the hake super dish. Atmosphere was spoiled when a party of...nine arrived to celebrate a 40th birthday just not right during level 3, dampened our little celebration. Would I return sure would the dishes reminded us so much of Spain we nearly felt we were there. Good value if you order as you eat and not let your eyes rule your stomach by ordering all at once.More

Amazing for tapas - Nira served us for the evening and she was excellent. The sangria was great, and all the wait staff are so attentive and kind. Will definitely come again!

A warm day in Dublin and happened across the Port House advertising its tapas menus. Always a fan of tapas we thought we would try it out. What a gem of a place. Inside is very cozy and quirky and even though there wasn’t many...inside the Spanish music created a definite holiday vibe. We had a choice of indoors and outdoors and so being covid conscious and with the sun shining we headed out to the open but nicely shaded garden area. We ordered lots of tapas between us and everything including croquettes, chicken skewers, fried cheeses and paella were all really tasty. Portions are quite small but that’s usual for tapas. The desserts of churros and Portuguese custard tarts were also fab. Service was excellent and attentive and we really felt like we were on a Spanish island for that hour today! Excellent. Oh and a final shout out to pretty much the cheapest thing on the menu, the black garlic alioli - absolutely gorgeous with fresh bread and it was one of the highlights! RecommendedMore

Visited Monday at lunch time. Although there was only two other tables present at the time, staff were not very attentive and came across somewhat rude. Vast range of tapas on menu was impressive, including many vegetarian options. Majority of food was excellent. In berenjena...con hummus the aubergine was disappointing however the hummus was excellent, also ensalada de pollo was not great, hamburguesa vegana was excellent. Rose wine tasted as if from a bottle open for days which was confirmed upon asking for another glass being told they had ‘no more rose’ and no alternatives offered. Churros were excellent and prices were good for quality of most tapas. Would like to return in an evening setting for more of an atmosphere.More
