It's a very very small place at temple bar area. They have good selection of oysters, it's really fresh and nice, but it's not cheap. We had the lobster roll which is not that so good.

You have to queue to get a table. It's very laid back, but busy. Not fine dining by any means. Food was delicious and well worth the wait. Will be back.

One of my favorite places in Dublin. Small place but fantastic atmosphere. Everything is good here but you gotta try the lobster roll. Even the Guinness is fresh here.

Me and my wife was there during our last day of stay in Ireland. It is a microscopic restaurant set in Temple bar. There are few tight seats and the kitchen with exposed fresh fish right at the end. We ordered a seafood tower, and...More

Nope- we walked right in and were served. It's a small place, so if your group is larger than three of four, you could book to be on the safe side, but it isn't required.
