over a 3 day period of eating lunch and dinner in Dublin the old spot topped the lot, tue night and the place was packed, but instead of just say ' were booked out' we were offered a seat in the bar to have a drink until a table came available or if we wanted to eat in the bar we could, we had a drink as I like the restaurant buss,
what an excellent waiter we had, he explained how busy it was that night and they were just serving the mains to a table of 50 upstairs so our order would be a little delayed to start off, which was fine with us as we were told this, the company was good so time flies anyway, every course I had was Divine with very good presentation, well done to the old spot, ye Deserve every success.

Good range of locally source food - well cooked and very tasty with a good range of menus. Beers and wines available in what is a bit of a gastro pub. Noisy environment and not in the least intimate.

We got married at Sir Patrick Dun's hospital Registry Office on Friday. We walked over to The Old Spot for an early dinner. On arrival, we were directed upstairs to the private room which was beautifully set up. Two of the mirrors had our names and "congratulations" written on them - a lovely touch by Jane who'd had been our contact before our 'big day'
The wait staff, Ashley and a French gentleman who's name we didn't get, were amazing.
The food and wine was incredible. The pace of the service was perfect.
We are so grateful that we choose The Old Spot for our small (16 people) reception and wedding celebration - it was a marriage made in Heaven!
Continued success to all at The Old Spot and thank again Jane.

A great place for a light meal or for something more substantial. Good range of dishes with relaxed service in a great atmosphere. You just grow accustomed to the trains passing directly overhead!
