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.

The restaurant is a complete tourist trap (not surprising as its in Temple Bar). Everyone was ushered out as quickly as possible to bring the next set of tourists in and all squeezed in like sardines. The staff were friendly enough but I don't approve...of being asked to leave a tip which is meant to be discretionary. The food, I'm sorry to say was pretty bland. A cajun chicken sandwich burger should at least have some flavour. My husband's chicken in the basket dish turned out to be overcooked chicken goujons. Unfortunately we won't be returning.More

Recommended by a friend, I had high expectations and it was everything i hoped for! Delicious food, super friendly staff and great atmosphere. We booked a few weeks in advance, I suggest doing this if you don't want to queue on the stairs! It is...very snug inside but I didn't feel cramped. We will be returning on our next visit.More

Yes, it was PACKED! Yes, it was a wait to get in. Yes, it isn't a very large place. It was well worth it all! What a great place to warm our cold bones in December and have a GREAT lunch. BEST Irish Stew I...found in Ireland. Staff were great, drinks were great, prices were good!More

I had a dinner in here, it was horrible, they didn't wants to let me out because I haven't pay tip as much as waiter wanted. I never experienced something like that, he start calculate 10% and force me to pay even if the service...was very bad and rushed, food was not good either. I whould not recommend such an experienceMore

Nice restaurant in the Temple Bar area. Had the Irish stew and fish and chips which were both excellent. Staff were friendly but seemed a bit too eager to get you out as soon as possible to get the next lot of folk in.

Really disappointing. We have booked month in advance for father in law birthday. Confirmed by email twice. Turned up on the day to be told no tables are available and we can join the queue to wait for a table. When we asked how long...manger said he had no control of the bookings and it will be another hour. Didn’t come across such poor and unapologetic customer service in long timeMore

Nice place to grab some lunch and a quick guiness while exploring Dublin. It does seem a bit touristy but overall the prices are reasonable and the service was great.

Both had seen how highly reviewed the restaurant was and decided to go. We had the irish stew and guinness stew and both were very good. However the seating was quite cramped as if we were having dinner with others around us we were that...closely sat. The pint of guinness was probably the worst of the trip but might have been end of barrel on a sunday night. Also the staff were very pushy at the end for a service charge / tip asking for 10-20% for an average experience and it made us feel quite uncomfortable asking so loudly for it in a quiet atmosphere.More

Shockingly bad. Booked two months ago for a birthday and turned up and was told at least a 30min wait (looked like a longer wait as the queue was out the door).. Such a rude manager who didn’t care and said ‘we have over booked’....My partner runs 8 restaurants and over booking to this degree is poor service and very very poor management. Needless to say we didn’t eat there…and needless to say never will. This kind of l place gets by because of mass tourism…and doesn’t deserve to.More

Booked a table but couldn’t be seen until over half an hour after so stood cramped at the top of the stairs. Finally got a table but felt like we were on the clock with them desperate for us to leave. Pretty rubbish experience. Food...was pretty decent.More
