“Super spot ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Our second visit here the last being at least over two years ago so was interested to see what it would be like.
Service was very prompt table was reserved downstairs which is a really nice and intimate settings
Both waitresses looking after us where very friendly and polite
We were a party of four
We all had 2 courses and either 3 beers or glasses of wine
Food was really nice and piping hot with good size servings; very tasty
Waitress advised that as one was on the set menu why not avail of the dessert which was then shared by the two ladies on our group. I thought advising us this was a very nice touch
Bill was €160 for the 4 and was good value
Will be back and highly recommend

“Hen party meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

What a lovely welcome we received, couldn't fault this little place, lots of choice on the menu, food was delicious. We wasn't made to feel uncomfortable as I'm sure 14 ladies could have been quite noisy. Definitely recommend this restaurant, I would love to return.

“Long wait for the food and so so dinner ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

It took forever for appetizer to come and after we finish , it took at least another 20 minutes to come. Three of us ordered three main courses and somehow we all had an issue. Filet was too tough. Pasta was using wrongly. Grill squid appetizer was good but only a few pieces on the top of delicious salad. 5 EUR homemade break was good however.

“Always reliable for a nice dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The food and service of this Temple Bar Italian eatery are very reliable. The fried calamari and most of the pastas are highly recommended. I love their carbonara!
