Full the first time we tried, so booked for the following night. Not a great table next to a serving counter we felt a bit overlooked. But the food was delicious - we shared a fish platter to start, then I had bacon hock with Savoy cabbage and parsnip crisps followed by a super vanilla carrageen and seasonal fruit (rhubard)....

Tucked away round the corner from the law courts but we enjoyed the food very much; it was fresh and tasty and not too expensive.

Have not been here for a long time and had good memories of it but disappointed this time. Had early bird menu which I and both my friends thought was average with the starters being tastier the main courses. Wine and craft beers were nice and staff lovely but overall only ok.

The meal was very disappointing. We ordered the fish dish which consisted of hake which was so very thin and served swimming on what appeared to be pea soup with shrunken spinach, cold beans and kale which were supposed to be the vegetables I would think. The whole dish was very bland and awful. I did mention this to them.

Food ingredients fresh from the English market. You will not get better than that. Friendly, kind and attentive service is the icing on the cake.

This place always wins for me. It's always fresh and tasty. The menu changes and keeps it interesting. It feels like a lot of love went into every dish!

Evidently it is illegal to serve or sell liquor on Good Friday in Ireland, so everything was jam packed on Thursday night. After being turned away from a few places, someone told us how to find Fenn's Quay and we got the last available table. We had chicken livers with bleu cheese ice cream (yes, you read that right!), which... More
