We arrived late on Saturday night without a reservation, and were courteously greeted and fed at the bar, where we could watch the kitchen. These people are very very good. The soup was fine, the mussels appetizer was fresh and perfectly steamed, and the fish entrees were some of the best we have had. But the desserts...fantastic! Wine was good... More

There was an excellent choice of dishes for lunch, including a vegetarian menu. Everything - starters, main, sides and pudding - was very, very tasty.

We dropped in here for food having seen a review in our hotel room. We didn't book and turned up on spec. The lady who welcomed us was so friendly and fitted us in sitting in stools overlooking the kitchen. The good was excellent and the service friendly and unhurried. Would definitely recommend and we would probably go again but... More

We went here since it was the highest ranked, reasonably priced restaurant near the Premier Inn in Alfred St and we were not disappointed! All the food was excellent, the service great and it was a night to remember! Thanks!

A group of us dropped in and enjoyed a light lunch - service was very good and the food tasty. We could easily have stayed for the evening but we were on a tight shopping schedule, so had to leave! I would recommend.

Had dinner here on a Saturday, The starters (fried calamari) was good, but I think the main course (roasted hake) was even better. Fish was very fresh and it was cooked to perfection, one of the best meals I had in Ireland. The service was awesome with brilliant recommendations from the waitress. All in all, an excellent restaurant and I... More

We booked this at short notice on a Monday night and were surprised at the busyness of this place, we went for a pre-theatre menu. There were lots to entice us - we had French onion soup, mussels, duck and squid for starters - all very tasty. Our mains were salmon with an oriental twist, haddock, lamb and pork belly... More
