As a big fan of seafood I was keen to try Catch 22 with a friend for lunch, especially having read such positive reviews. The staff were really lovely and welcoming. I had the feeling that the kitchen during the day wasn’t fully staffed leaving...More

I thought the food was excellent, the hake was extremely fresh and well presented with the crust being something I really enjoyed. Maybe a bit on the pricey side but was well worth it. It's a real quality seafood restaurant in Dublin, which is something...More

Food was fine, but the service was really terrible. We ordered drinks, but our starters arrived before the drinks. We had to ask several times for our drinks. They finally arrived when we had finished our starters. It took ages for them to clear dishes....More

Great place at the core of downtown. Quite difficult to find due another pub is next and seems to me that are the same business. Nice and friendly staff. Great food and delicious flavours. You will enjoy every bite of your dinner.
