Tiny, hole in the wall place shouldn't dissuade you. These guys know how to cook. Yes, service was slow, the place was packed. Who cares? You are in Dublin. The food is amazing. Go.

This little restaurant for me is the best Oyster's bar in Dublin. You can choose many tipes of oyster's with many different dressing. You can have a glass of wine or beer and join it with your seafood dish. The selection is great and you...More
