Located in the heart of the city centre. Excellent food, great staff & very affordable. Love the atmosphere in this restaurant. The bar is old style & they also have seating upstairs best to book at the weekends as it is very popular. Lunch tends to be on the expensive side considering the cost if dinner.

Great spot for meeting friends for lunch, and a lovely place for evening meals also. Staff are great, atmosphere is chilled out and relaxed and the food is scrummy. They always have a great veggie option and the mini chocolate pot with a coffee are just the perfect end to a meal for those that dont want a big heavy... More

This is a good spot to refresh yourself after shopping in Patrick St. Lively atmosphere and comprehensive menu of tasty wholesome food from soups and salads to meaty mains. I have visited often and the staff are always nice, friendly and attentive. It is large bar restaurant and has a good reputation.

In all fairness, I'm posting this review in response to a prompt from TA to review this Restaurant. It was almost a year ago with my daughter having collected her from work.

Busy spot with decent varied menu of modern Irish, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes. Table can be close together but always a good atmosphere.

This restaurant don't do bookings for less than 6 so their success means delays in being served. We had to wait for nearly and an hour but the wait was worth it in the end. Once seated the food was superb and the service was faultless, so once you're prepared to wait a bit you won't be disappointed
