This place is amazing. It is a small restaurant, with a small menu but that only makes it special. We had a two course dinner, with starter and main. I had a sea food chowder as a starter, revisited in an asian style, it was just amazing. As a main I had the lamb, which was really well presented and... More

I had actually planned to dine at Forest Avenue around the corner but didn't realise that they didn't open on Mondays and Tuesdays so ended up at the Little Kitchen. It reminded me a lot of a similar style bistro that used to trade in Upper Rathmines as the decor, size and even limited menu was quite similar in many... More

Despite the menu being quite small, the food at this restaurant is absolutely incredible. Had the lamb and it completely fell off the bone- amazing value for money for what you're presented with. Only had the one course but the two/three course options are also great value for money for what you get. Love that you can bring your own... More

My Son and I visited this restaurant on Wednesday evening. It was fairly quiet at 7pm but more people came later on. We spent time trying to decide what to eat from the lovely menu and couldnt decide on a three course or a two course as we wanted to taste it all . The manager saw our dilemma and... More

Found this as it was convenient to a meeting I was attending. Had 2 courses the risotto was fab.. steak and trimmings nice too. It's very small but I liked that. Would recommend to others.

This was my second visit here. The food is good but the cramped feeling and abrupt nature when you place a reservation certainly detract. I had the steak which was 'fine'. Both times I ve been there it has proved an ordeal when I ask for mustard to accompany! Being honest, I have eaten better steaks in Dublin, while nothing... More

A good dining experience, we were a group of 5 and the food and service were very good. It is small but that adds to the charm. You can BYO wine or they now have their own stock and the Spar is next door if you need to get some! Definitely worth a visit.

Lunch for two was superb. The selection was very good at a good price. The fish pie was to die for and the meatballs were super tasty. The berry crumble was light and flavoursome. Service was excellent.

This is a small restaurant that punches well above its weight! We were staying in the area and had tried to book a table for the Saturday night, but they were fully booked. Undaunted, we passed the restaurant on Saturday and thought it worth checking if they had any cancellations - they had! We were rewarded with a delicious meal,... More
