Our group of eight arrived famished after a conference and were seated right away. Service was excellent and very efficient. Most of the party had dietary particulars but all was seen to with a flourish. Everything was delicious, I can particularly attest to the Cashel Blue Tagliatelle which was just divine! The wine pairing was perfect - we had the organic Pinot Grigio which was actually had a lot more depth than typical pinots. The atmosphere was casual, the dining area nicely decorated with lovely artwork honouring Irish greats (which was a nice talking point as there were Americans and Canadians in the group). Finally, the cost per head at the end was very reasonable. All in all, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderfult early dinner - quiet, relaxed, and well-paced - at 7:30pm on a Friday.

We had the pork terrine and chicken liver pate to start, and both were excellent. For our main courses we enjoyed the warm black pudding and chorizo salad and the prawn tagliatelle, and they came with generous portions and were delicious.

Service as friendly and quietly unobtrusive, and the surroundings were nicely done, with historic and literary artwork on the walls. And the fact that we were sitting in a place mentioned in Ulysses rounded out a great dining experience.

We enjoyed the light breakfast and subsequently went there for dinner. We ordered the Sea Bass seasonal special at the recommendation of our server and were thrilled with the dish. It was truly a gourmet find. When was the last time you had sea bass garnished with Samphire and had a perfectly seasoned sauce with bacon bits and roasted potatoes that tasted great? I've dined at Michelin starred restaurants throughout Europe and they had nothing on '104' other than location. While we dined, we began to notice the attention to detail in things like paintings, keepsakes, tiling and even the background music. Kudos to Karen (owner ?) for putting together a real culinary gem. My only regret about '104' is that we don't live in Ireland to enjoy it on a regular basis.

We went there on a Groupon. Great deal! We were greeted by Martha who seated us at our preferred table. No hassle whatsoever. We got goat cheese salad as our appetizer. Wow, that is really good. I had their chicken dish, which was moist and delicious. My wife had a steak, also very tasty. The chocolate death dessert almost killed us, we were so full.
In addition, the deal came with a glass of wine. Very nice.
We will be back. I really loved the food and service. Both Martha and Fiona were excellent servers. Thumbs WAY up for 104.

I had a family event here recently, with 14 of us having dinner. I have to say we were looked after exceptionally well.

The food was fantastic, wings were delicious, BBQ sauce was great and the portion size was spot on - many establishments have become quite mean with their wings portions these days, but not the case here.

In addition, most of us had steak of one form or another. I had rib eye myself. Very tender and cooked exactly as I wanted it: medium rare. Delicious.

My grandad had sweet potato fries for the first time in his life (!) and, like my own, they were delicious. The team in the restaurant really looked after him and my grandmother very well too and they had a lovely time.

All told: great food, great service and a great experience.

PS Try the bread and butter pudding.
