Good food, very big portions

Atmosphere was good in here and the quality of the food for being pub food and how busy the place was was excellent. I would recommend anyone to stop off in here

Great location, lovely decor, good service and delicious food. We had a late breakfast here after arriving in Dublin and opted for the Irish breakfast (10 euros) - this included tea/coffee, toast, white and black pudding, sausages, bacon, fried eggs, beans and sautéed potatoes.

Ate here twice on a trip to Dublin this weekend. They had a brilliant vegetarian menu and gluten free menu. Made me "vegetarian" and my husband "ceoliac" feel very special and unlimited for choices of things to eat. I highly recommend this restaurant. Thank guys.

Only average food, very crowded, loud and overpriced (not expensive) for what you get. We were seated in the kitchen. It was so loud and the wait staff was not attentive. Much batter placed to eat in Dublin. Find anyplace but this place.
