Waited for ages for our meals. We had some dirty cutlery. When the steak arrived it was not even warm. The attitude of the manager was hopeless. Besides being cold the food was below par anyway. People far overrate this place because of being 'child friendly' - another thing that I don't get as we have 2 small children also.... More

Large restaurant with lots of room. Have been to the restaurant in Dublin quite frequently and have always enjoyed the food. Feel the restaurant needs a bit of lift in terms of decor to make it more modern. The food is good, nothing outstanding but good spot to get some cocktails and food. Caters for large parties.

Great decor and sense of space. The staff are really professional and made a lovely effort for a birthday dessert. Only extra thing would be if they extended the menu slightly. Great for groups.
