We had a good breakfast here to start our day right. Full Irish, veggie breakfast and avocado eggs were all excellent.

Recommended by distillery staff when we asked about nearby fish and chips, we were underwhelmed. Service was average and fish unimpressive.

Went in on Saturday with some friends as we were visiting for the weekend and whilst we loved the interior, the staff and the delicious food, service was very slow. They were all nice, professional but unfortunately was very slow and it did put s...mark on our night. Will try it again, hopefully they won't be as busy next timeMore

Everything from the charcuterie board, specially the chorizo, was from the cheap supermarket, not worth it

My family & I were dining here on Saturday afternoon when a family of 6 arrived with 1 of the family having special needs. The manager pointed to the chaps tracksuit bottoms using this as an excuse to deny entry. His manner in doing this...was totally inappropriate & walked off leaving them standing shocked at the entrance. I was stunned as sitting across from our table was a lad dining wearing bright blue tracksuit bottoms & after all this was around 3ish so a dress code should not be in place. This manager has to be removed as there should be no place for discrimination like this in our beautiful capital.More

Imagine our surprise and shock when we went for an early evening family meal attired in our sports clothes after GAA matches earlier that day. The excuse given was under new management sports attire no longer acceptable. After dining here on several occasions it was...insulting to be turned away from the restaurant with elderly parents and a brother with special needs. The member of staff who spoke to us was no addition to the hospitality sector by his manner. Debbie CondonMore

Lukewarm cappuccino from an indifferent waitress. I'd like to be able to describe the apple and raspberry crumble I ordered, but I can't because she forgot to bring it. Thereafter it proved impossible to get the staff's attention, so I just drank down the coffee...and left it at that.More

There is a wide selection of foods and cocktails to choose from, so everyone will find something they like. The food is also very tasty and I enjoyed it greatly. Very nice outdoor seating. Most waiters/waitresses are lovely despite there seemingly being more tables than...their small number can handle. This made the stay at the restaurant a bit longer than planned as it takes them a while to take and bring your orders. But otherwise a lovely spot and I recommend it.More
