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.

We took our children here for a real treat. My husband had visited with work years ago and had always raved about the place. The steak was simply divine. My 10 year old daughter had the burger, which she thought was amazing, my sons and...myself and my husband had steak. Delicious. No other word for the meal. The nicest mash and spring onions (champ/howd) I have ever tasted. Anyone who knows the restaurant knows you aren’t coming for a quick or cheap bite, but quality meat presentation and flavour and that’s what we had. Did not disappoint. If you love your steak and looking for a treat, definitely would recommend .More

Delicious steaks and wine, nice atmosphere and excellent service. I really liked that they present their different cuts of meat before you order so you get a sense of how big the steaks are.

I’d been looking g forward to trying this one for a while & wasn’t disappointed. The beef is of a great quality and cooked with precision, giving a perfectly smoky taste. Beef fat chips were delicious, but will be a bit over seasoned for many....Cheese was good and a decent portion. Slightly irked by being served the wrong bottle of wine, particularly when the manger seemed aware of this. Staff are efficient and never far away, It’s not cheap, but it’s not ridiculous either. Ultimately, if you want quality, you have to pay for it,More

What you can’t complain about is the quality of the steak. Fuelled,a little, by a few pints of the black stuff I elected to go for the T bone - at over 50€ not the economy pick but I must say was excellent and probably...worth it. The accompanying fried onions did not quite hit the mark and the peppercorn sauce was thin but all in all a great time was had by all. Staff were attentive and, on a Saturday during the 6 nations, the atmosphere was “hopping” as our taxi driver described itMore

Booked in advance as visiting from England, was seated but was then moved to a better table in the window. Staff were amazing and attentive. The different steaks were bought to us on a platter then explained a bit about each one before ordering. Without...a doubt the best steak we have ever eaten, the waiter obliged when I asked for a candle as it was my partner’s 40th birthday and even let me put it in his steak. The waiter also helped me when my partner spilt most of his red wine over me, he came over straight away with napkins & water. All in all the best experience and service, very sad we don’t live in Dublin but will definitely be returning in the future. Thank you for an amazing night.More

In my opinion, the best steak house in Dublin. Both the quality of the beef and how it is prepared is critical, and they get it correct on both attributes. I had the bone in ribeye and the cut had just the right amount of...marbling and was cooked to true medium rare, just as ordered. I like the fried onions that were included and the fact I could substitute a salad for the potatoes. The creamed spinach side was also great. The atmosphere also works for a steakhouse, it is old school without being fake old school (where they try too hard) and service is quite efficient. Best steak house experience I’ve had in Dublin.More

Restaurant is lovely, quiet and intimate with a luxury feel. We were a party of seven. Two of our group said the steak was the best they have ever had! Sides were lovely too. Would highly recommend.

Found this steakhouse last minute whilst in the temple bar area & so glad we chose to eat here rather than the other bars around. Staff were friendly & service was quick. Food was outstanding. We both went for the 10oz strip loin steak &...it was definitely worth the money & cooked perfectly. I ordered the creamy mash & creamy spinach on the side and both were so delicious. Cost £100 for 2 of us which is so reasonable with two glasses of wine & a pint. Would re visit in a heart beat, thank you so muchMore

Went here with my boyfriend for his birthday a few weeks ago. The food was beautiful, my boyfriend said it was the best steak he has had in Dublin (he loves his steak). To start we had the beef croquette and the mushrooms. We both...had the fillet steak, cooked medium with a selection of sides and bottle of red.The steaks were so tender, perfectly cooked and seasoned - the knife literally cut through as if it were butter. After our mains had been cleared we were informed by the waiter that our table was needed within the next 15 minutes and therefore we wouldn’t have enough time for desert. This left a bad taste for both my partner and I. Our reservation was for 7 and by this stage it was 8.35. I had made the reservation almost 3 weeks in advance so it’s not as if we were walk ins who were lucky to get a table. We also weren’t informed on arrival that the table was required back by a certain time. I feel this is part of a wider dining issue in Dublin City centre where restaurants place a huge emphasise on table turn over and rush patrons out the door, regardless of whether they have had time to enjoy their full meal or dining experience. I was really disappointed as had been looking forward to this meal and let’s face it, it’s not cheap either. I won’t be returning and wouldn’t recommend due to this (which is a real pity as the food is divine). This table turn over within 90 minutes many city centre restaurants are pushing is devaluing the dining experience and turning many locals off of dining in town.More
