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.

This is my first review ever We booked our Xmas party for 22 people. All turned up on time. We had a number of issues to contend with 1 slow service. 2 served the wrong more expensive set menu. 3 led to believe deposit was...returned when we paid in full. 6 days later and no deposit and no one can tell me when we get out deposit back. This appears to be between opentable and the restaurantMore

We had a birthday lunch here yesterday. The food and wine was absolutely delicious. The staff, particularly, Lisa were absolutely exceptional. Couldn't recommend enough.

Lunch in the upstairs dining room was very disappointing. The portions were tiny and we left hungry. There was nothing on any plate to take it to the next level and I honestly expected more. My Confit Duck was tasteless and dry and the fondant...potato was undercooked. My fellow diners were all of the same opinion that it was indeed underwhelming and very expensive for what we got!More

6 of us had dinner here. The service was a little slow even though I couldn’t say that the place was full. 35 minutes from arriving, on time, to getting a drink, never mind food! 2 of our dishes were lovely, the Ossobuco and the...Venison Ragu. The prawn pasta and the pork belly were fine, by no means described as fabulous. Lastly the prosciutto pizza was awful. Yes it was eaten but only because of hunger. Not really inspired to go back even though the staff were lovely.More

I have had many great meals here but my visit yesterday was very disappointing. As a starter I had the excellent trio of beetroot salad - fresh crisp and delicious! However, what followed was simply an unacceptable vegetarian option. The 'Harissa-spiced Carrot & Lentils with...braised fennel, charred red onions, natural yoghurt' was not as described. Instead a slop of bland lentils with three over cooked baby carrots, and four pieces of roast onion arrived. No fennel and no yoghurt. It was an unpleasant dish and not acceptable in this day and age. The extra sharing dish of red onion was delicious. This was not a cheap lunch and my companions did not complain about their food so maybe mine was an exception. At 4.30 - in a near empty restaurant we were then asked to leave by a very grumpy female maitre D.We had arrived at 2.30. I will not be returning.More

Good food and friendly service. Food came quickly even though the house was full. The only problem was that place was really noicy and you need talk loud. No a good place for quiet dinner. Other than that a good experience

My wife and I decided to visit this place after doing some research on our trip to Ireland as it was highly recommended. Let’s just say now that we have experienced it ourselves, we would not recommend it to anyone. We both ordered the rib...eye from the early bird menu which we thought was 33 euro as we got the starter and the main entree. However, you should question why the rib-eye has 14 euro next to it even though it’s part of the early bird special menu. What you don’t know is that because of it being a “steak” they add an extra 14 euro to each rib eye because it’s a s”supplement” which is a “deal” considering the rib eye is typically much more. We did not know any of this until we got slapped with the bill at the end of our visit. We felt like we got bamboozoled to say the least. And honestly we’ve had much better steaks in other parts of Ireland for a fraction of the cost. The meat was chewy and fatty and I ordered mine medium rare and it was more rare than medium rare.We certainly aren’t going back but for people visiting Ireland, save your money and DO NOT go here, go somewhere else. I gave it a 2 star for the staff/service as overall everything was good there and the actual place itself was nice but those are the only positives from our experience.More

Great menu and very tasty food. Service can be a little mixed - we have had mainly good experiences but staff turnover seems to be a little high so have had mediocre service from those not familiar with the menu and seeming a bit lost....Overall it is usually a great experience. Great location for city centre dining and well recommended.More

This is what you call a restaurant, starting from the service to the kindness of each and everyone working here, the food speaks for itself, every bite was exceptional, and at time amazingly unexpected, everything was so delicious, cocktails and meals, but regardless of how...good the food was the difference was made by the staff, I will be looking forward to coming back here, and I will make sure to recommend it to all my friends.More
