Great service, food, and drinks! A must on your list of things to do in Dublin. If you are new to the Boxty the wait staff is great at giving you direction to help you narrow down your selection. What an amazing selection as well.

Visited with my partner and had a very tasty meal here the Dublin Bay prawns and dumplings were excellent, my partner had the three stews sampler which was very filling and tasty. The waiter was excellent too. Well worth a visit.

Very good friendly restaurant in Temple Bar area of Dublin. I have read complaints of Temple Bar being expensive and crowded. I felt I thoroughly got my monies worth every where I went.

Hello Danielle, we usually recommend reservations for large groups, but if it is just two people it is easier to get a table at lunch time.
