Great traditional fare and very cosy, perhaps a little too cosy for some. The stews and bacon and cabbage are comfort food heaven on a cold day.

I visited with a friend on a cold Tuesday for lunch. We ordered the blue cheese and mushroom dumplings and beef and Guinness stew. Both were great meals, the dumplings nice and creamy. The boxty fries are a large serving and very easy to munch your way through. Our waiter was friendly. Would definitely visit again given the chance.

Terrific food, great cider and beers. The staff was warm and welcoming the place was comfortable though tables were a bit close. We liked it so much for dinner we went back for lunch.

Nice place to get a bite. However we remembered this place for the amazing corned beef and cabbage they served. They have changed the menu and this dish to more of a dumpling and corned beef. Was a bit odd, the sauce was almost too sweet. hopeful they return to the traditional corned beef. The other food was good. It... More

Are here with my wife on a cold winters day. Had the stew with a tasting tray of ales, loved it and just what was needed on a cold day. Boxty fries were awesome and service was happy, attentive & friendly. Couldn't ask for more, hearty fare & good ale.

I went there because I saw a program highlighting this restaurant. The food was as good as advertised, especially their Boxty tasting platter: Boxty Dumplings with Honey & Chilli, Toasted Boxty Loaf topped with St. Tolas Goats Cheese, and Boxty Fries with a Rocket & Garlic Dip. It was absolutely delicious. Do not miss out on this!

We dropped in quite early on a Friday evening with two young kids. The staff were lovely and very accommodating. They had a nice kids menu and my husband and I had some great stews. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating towards the kids on what must be such a busy night in the temple bar area. Lovely place... More

We booked for a party of 10 and were given a wonderfully warm welcome while we waited for the rest of our guests. It's a very informal dining experience and is more like eating at someone's home rather than a restaurant. The menu was excellent and everyone was hard pushed to settle on their final choice. The "small" rib starter... More

The food here is substantial and warming. The Dublin Coddle was just what I needed after coming in from the cold. You also cannot eat here without trying the Boxty Fries - they are ridiculously morish! Service is efficient and pleasant. Overall, a good dining experience.
