We found this place quite by accident after a day of sightseeing with a one day bus tour. Exhausted and not really in the mood for a pub scene, we were looking for something different and quieter. This place is right off of Grafton Street which was where the bus tour dropped us off. It is a wine bar- no beer- and offers a 3 course menu for an excellent price. The small cozy atmosphere is low key and the food is exceptional. The wine selection is extensive, with wines from around the world. They offer special wine pairings and tastings every 2 weeks that sell out. I didn't get to go to one but the next time I go to Dublin, if one is being offered I will defiantly try and go.

I was fortunate enough to get a reservation on short notice for a Friday night AND St. Patrick's Day! I have been enjoying this establishment since 2009! Always great choices, service and ambiance! I have introduced this restaurant to several of my colleagues and all have had a positive experience!
This evening I had the mussels appetizer and the lamb shank. Delicious!

This place has a great atmosphere..Very romantic. Small, with reachly decorated red walls. The service is ok and food is good. Regular size portions and good selection of wines. 1 minute walking from Grafton Street, i would recommend it to everyone who is looking for a romantic, hidden place to spend the evening.

No beer. Lots of wine. Great steak! Don't hesitate to go downstairs if you want to escape from the typical "irish pub" go for the 3 course menu. Even if you are not that hungry!

Lovely pre theater dinner. Didn't book. Great selection on the menu. Goats cheese salad and tomatoes and pepper soup to start. But it was the mains which stole the show! Ravioli with spinach and mushrooms...yum..yum...yum. Chicken with a calavdos and tarragon sauce...yummy. Clean plates all round. Stuffed...wish I had room for the Apple and pear tart tatin. Next time
