Loved the oysters, especially the torched ones and those with Kimchi. What a great idea! The place is very cosy (=small) which gives it its character. It's super packed after 6pm, so try to come early. We had the oysters and a seafood platter our outstanding quality.

A crowded hole in the wall with terrific seafood. There was a wait for the small number of seats, the waiter was friendly and helpful, no one rushed you and all seafood was fresh and listed on the board. You could see the staff preparing everything. Oysters Rockefeller were seared in front of the diner and were delicious. Yum! They... More

This place is a true hole in the wall-my favorite kind of place. It is a tiny restaurant in the heart of Dublin. We waited shortly for a seat at the "bar" and were very pleased with the food. We had a lobster roll, crab roll, and a bowl of the chowder with gigantic prawns. Everything was delicious, but if... More

Went here with my girlfriend and her family. The food was wonderful (I had the lobster roll). The others were also very happy with their food. However, the waiter forgot my order and while everyone else was eating I was still waiting -- assuming it was next in line. Waited some 40 minutes like this for an order that, when... More

Amazingly good seafood, the grilled prawns and lobster roll were divine. Happy!! Very tiny bit made up with the quality of the food. Service was good and that Bloody Mary was superb especially after nursing a two day bender hangover

A great lunch location. Grilled Gambas amazing taste. Lobster roll very nice and Nachos best i've ever tasted. This place is all about the food. Very casual, small and friendly place. This is the place for excellent seafood.
