Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We were recommended The Port House by a friend when we arrived in a taxi in Temple Bar. We were hopeful for a table but when we walked in we could see how busy they were. They went out of their way to accommodate us...and we got a seat. Thank goodness we did as we had a great time. The food and service were fantastic, nice atmosphere and the music was great. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for a great first night on our tour of Ireland.More

Very good choice of tapas- we have tried 8 of them (different one) and couldn't decide which one was the worst because all of them were so tasty! Plus staff is very friendly

Well...better go to Spain to have some tapas 😉 The vegan hamburger was good. Wines very expensive. Lo que nos ha gustado más ha sido la música.

Good location, great atmosphere with a choice of terrace or basement dining. Staff were friendly and efficient with food and drinks being served in a timely fashion. Given that Dublin does genuinely have high drinks prices, the price of the drinks and the food was...extremely reasonable and very tasty.More

Had dinner here with a party of 9. Enjoyed a wide array of tapas and drinks. The table could have been a little larger to allow plates to be passed/shared more easily.

Lovely little restaurant with delicious food. The menu options were brilliant with plenty to choose from. Dishes arrived in good time and well cooked. The service was also very good despite the restaurant being rather busy. The wine list was very impressive but also a...nice selection of beers and cocktails. Would definitely come back if visiting Dublin again.More

The place is very low quality. Water was dropping from the ceiling, it was cold and dark. Not all the food we ordered arrived. Wine was expensive and of the worst quality. The waiter was uneducated, impolite, and gross. I recommend avoiding this place if...you do not want to ruin your stay in DublinMore

Open for lunch (despite the times given here). Wanted a light lunch and there are loads of options here. Our choices were Tomaquet, tomatoes with oil and garlic with toast, tostas de champinones, patatas and deep fried anchovies. All excellent and washed down with some...spaniah white wine. A place I’ll come back to.More

We had lovely tapas and wine. However, the churros “chocolate” sauce was awful!!! We had had this dish before at the restaurant and this was the first time it was that bad. We were really disappointed because that was what were looking forward to have.

We went to have dinner in Pintxo Temple Bar yesterday and we got very disappointed with the food and with the table they gave us. The tapas were not tasty at all. For someone who knows the flavors of Mediterranean food, this experience is bad...and the portions are ridiculously small. The place is lovely, very well decorated, however yesterday they gave us a table on the top floor, where it was pretty cold and barely with no light. I don't recommend it.More
