Found the service like the food in this restaurant to be rather 'hit and miss. We were waiting a while before our orders were taken. One of our party had a starter accompanied with a salad in reality it was a large dish of leaves and precious little else! Two of us had fish for our main course and found... More

We had my nieces confirmation there yesterday. Service was great, food was delicious and restaurant is very comfortable. I had the wings to start, they were very good but close to the Frank's sauce ones which I don't like. Bangers and mash for main which was gorgeous. Very tasty indeed..and for dessert I had orange and chocolate cheese cake. It... More

Went here recently with a group of six for breakfast. Food, service and ambience excellent. Shame it was ruined by the meagre portions. Asked for more toast and received 3 slices (half slice for each person). Asked for another pot of tea and received full pot of hot water with original T bags. Can never understand why restaurants do this... More

I had some business guests staying with me in Dublin a few months ago and we stayed in the hotel down the road. We walked to this little gem. I'd been before and it didn't disappoint this time either. The food and service were great, I will visit again.

Visited for lunch on a busy Saturday, food was excellent as per usual and staff and service were amazing. Anytime I've been its always busy yet the service or standard of food never suffers. Recommend the Beef ciabatta.

Had lunch here recently and was very impressed with the menu and the food that was ordered. Have had breakfast, dinner and tapas here over the last few years and have always been impressed both with the restaurant, staff, service and most importantly the food. If you're out City West way, or heading out of Dublin its worth taking a... More

Had a delicious brunch of smoked salmon and home made brown bread which was just out of the oven. My husband had a beautifully cooked steak with poached eggs and mushrooms as he was really hungry ! Great coffee which was refilled when needed. Louise and Katie were so cheerful, friendly and attentive to us throughout our meal even though... More
