In the very lively Temple Bar area, this tiny restaurant is an excellent surprise : very good and fresh seafood products, originally and well dressed, by very friendly staff. A must sea if you like seafood in Dublin !

This place had some of the best oysters we have ever had. It’s a little slip in the wall with 3 bench seats. Get in there and order the lobster roll and oysters. So good.
