We were sent over from Julian at Bike Dublin after a cold but fabulous bike tour around Dublin. Plenty of room to sit, warm up, and have a pint. It has a very cool atmosphere inside. We shared Patatas Bravas (the combo of the spicy...More

The tapas were pretty OK, not the best but some things were very delicious. However, it was before Christmas and very busy. The welcome we received and the service was fantastic. It made the experience as a group go really smoothly.

Enjoyed visit to the market bar for Sunday lunchtime tapas. Good service. Tasty food which was good value for money. Nice welcoming setting, which was warm and comfortable. What’s not to like. Will definitely return.

Didn’t have to wait long for a table which was good! The food was nice and reasonably priced, 2 of us shared 4 small plates which were quite big in size so we didn’t finished it all as we were stuffed! Would recommend the nachos...More

I still dream of the food at Market Bar (some pics which don’t actually do it justice)! In the 1700s it was actually a market, but now it’s a delicious tapas restaurant with lots to choose from and a great atmosphere.

The food is great. I love the idea of the food not coming all at once. The staff is super friendly. But the acoustics of the room is really bad. When it is packed with people, it is very loud there.

This large place does not quite know if its a bar or a restaurant but its worth visiting. Great atmosphere but loud and crowded. Good food but you may have to wait. Great for tourists and Dubliners alike .
