Would definitely go back and would recommend the place to anyone.

Can't comment on the food as we didn't eat - but had to leave a review as the staff here are brilliant & the atmosphere on Tuesday night was amazing! Live bands playing from when we arrived at around 8 till 1am. Drinks were on the pricey side but no more expensive than the rest of the city. We were... More

Every time we're in Dublin we always go here for either lunch or dinner (sometimes both :D) The menu is amazing and has so much choice! The gluten free options are great. But I love the steak sandwich! Yum! Steak is so tender. And the chicken wings!!! Delish! Staff are very friendly and helpful. Prices are really good. Lovely old... More

Hidden away above the bustling bars of Temple Square, we very nearly overlooked this restaurant we're it not for the PR girl outside. Me and my partner both had two courses, the service was excellent and the food was delicious, would highly recommend both the lamb shank and steak. The food was also reasonably priced and definitely worth what we... More

Ate here twice and you don't have to wait long for the service or the food. Only down side is that the table are very close to each other so it feels very cramped. Everything is well presented and well cooked. Plenty to choose from and good veggie food.

Me and my wife stopped into The Quays after a bad reception in the Arlington, another bar up the road. The staff met us with such a nice welcome and sat us down promptly. The food was quick, tasty and plentiful. The attention from the staff was great, they were always keeping and eye out to see if we needed... More

Was here on Sunday night, walked past and thought we would give it a go... Well we were very pleased we did! Plenty of food for starter, and both myself and my husband had steak medium rare, well it was delicious! Don't have much more to say other than reasonable price and worth every penny, would recommend it!
