Bangers and mash with gravy are to die for , however the salmon pasta was a bit pricy for what it, great Irish food has to be said so stop on by .

We had a great meal here on January 10th for my partner's birthday. There were 8 of us and all the food arrived at our table in a timely mannerand was good quality. The staff were also cheerful and friendly. Reasonably priced too for the amount you get.

Both had the beef stew and was fantastic, portion size huge and really tasty, just a shame about the ape walking around the floor with his chest out!!

As you'd expect from Temple Bar, this is a place that caters to tourists, with even vegetarian options available. The food is genuinely quite good though, the portions hearty, was a better meal than we thought we'd get. Guinness beef stew recommended. That said, it's not as good as a proper Sunday roast at other large pubs...

Our food was amazing. I have the Irish beef and Guiness stew BOTH times we ate here and the mushrooms as a starter with dinner. The food came out quickly and the servers were attentive but not over bearing. My husband has the fish and chips for lunch one day and the steak and chips for dinner on another ocasion,... More

Instead of looking for good local restuarants, some hidden away and often on the North of the river, why not stray into the tourist aimed Temple Bar. The Quays Irish Restaurant for instance. Ridiculous prices, pretty dreadful food mass produced, attempts to keep diners moving to allow the next service in. However does it get good reviews. Only saving grace;... More

We were in Dublin for a short stay.... We stumbled upon this restaurant and I am glad we did. We had shepherds pie and the lamb shanks dinner.... It was deliciously cooked Irish good. Prices were fair as the positions were good a good size. I cannot wait to go back!

I consider myself a bit of a expert when it comes to lamb shank and this is the best I've ever had in 20 years of international travel. The other contender would be the sampler platter for two with a great selection of beef and lamb stews, fish and chips plus cottage pie.

I've eaten here many other times and if I keep coming back is because I've never been disappointed neither with food nor with service. I usually had the Guinness Casserole which is divine, but this time i went for a 11oz. Sirloin Steak which was cooked to perfection. Very tasty meat and nicely presented. I enjoyed it and it was...
