We only had drinks in this eclectic bar. It was good times with good music and nice Guiness poured. It's a multi level bar that gets more rowdy the higher you go.

Bought a groupon deal for this restaurant. With an amazing deal the service did not disappoint and neither did the food. Everything was lovely, presented well and soooo good. Would definitely return for seconds. The décor was unusual and quirky but very comfortable to be in. Floors are very slippy so be careful if your in heels.

This was one of our very favourite restaurants in Dublin. What a terrible shame to see such a well run and excellent restaurant bite the dust. Martina Fox is one of the restaurant worlds greatest hostesses and you were always assured of a warm, friendly, smiling greeting. It really was a wonderful place to eat and for sure one of... More

We dined here recently before a show in the theatre. The service was very good. The lady serving us (not Martina Fox) was very friendly and professional. The food was nice, although the pear in the pear & blue cheese salad didn't really add much flavour and the duck for the main course was a touch overcooked. The panna cotta... More

Dined at this lovely venue prior to taking in a musical but was very disappointed with the food and service considering that I had chosen this gasto pub having read a number of good reviews. Overall the food was lacking in quantity and in quality and the service was slow and delivered by different waiters . I had the risotto... More

Having really enjoyed pre-theatre dinner here on several occasions we were very disappointed with our meal. My starter of glazed beets was a triumph of presentation over flavour. Both of us had sea bream with squid chorizo and a ragout. My squid was "grizzley" which I think means not fresh ,my partner could not find any chorizo and the ragou... More

Went to Bridge bar and bistro on Saturday night 31st August with friends and I have to say it was the worst meal I've ever had! Not to mention way too pricey for what we got!Each of the courses had at least one item not available. Choice was limited to 3 starters and 4 four maincourses. When we asked for... More

Not only is this a cool space under the Grand Canal Railway Bridge, but the husband-and-wife chef team, recently arrived from Oregon, are preparing great food. The local lobster appetizer and the fish were perfectly cooked as was guinea hen, and the chef came by to chat, tell us about the ingredients and make sure everything was perfect. It's a... More

Came here for a pre theatre dinner and was very impressed! Nice restaurant with excellent service. Delicious home made breads. Had the fig salad to start which was divine and full of flavor. Had the sea bream for main and it was cooked to perfection, the flavors on the plate complemented each other perfectly! I thought the portion sizes were... More
