Certainly one of the best restaurant experiences I've ever had. Great food and atmosphere, friendly and unpretentious, and all refreshingly can-do. What more can you ask? If you're visiting Dublin in the winter, the early sitting makes a perfect start to an evening.

Lunch last Friday. Beautiful food - I had the lamb shank. Mouth watering. Nice choice of wine and pleasantly priced for a relaxing Friday lunch. Compliments to our waitress. Professionally dressed and attentive to detail.
