Looking at other review it seems like we have been to a completely different restaurant. Hmm, maybe we just had bad luck that day. The location of the restaurant cannot be any better, right in the middle of all "action" surrounding Temple Bar. The look of the restaurant, both inside and outside, is perfect, typically Irish, you cannot ask for... More

Lovely staff, good food, very big portions and reasonable prices. Party of 4 including I vegetarian and I gluten free. Plenty of choices for all with separate GF menu. Would recommend but would also advise booking as very popular.

We stopped in here in the crowded area of Temple Bar and we were very pleasantly surprised by the nice atmosphere upstairs along with very fair prices and awesome food! I had a Cajun Chicken Sandwich with a Fried Egg... are you kidding me? Yes, AH-MAZING!

I travelled with a group of girlfriends (6 of us in total) and stayed in a hotel in Fleet Street. This pub/restaurant had a very lively bar downstairs and a restaurant upstairs. We ate in the restaurant twice because the food was so good, home cooked and great portions. The staff were so friendly and really new their stuff (re... More

Wandering through the Temple Bar district there are plenty of choices on offer but we just happened to choose this venue by pot luck. Lunch was over a couple of pints of Guinness. The dining venue was upstairs so need to take that into consideration, quite a spacious area and we had a nice seating for two. I had fish... More

We went to the Quay as we wanted an authentic experience. And not mainstream food from the many 'chain' establishments in the area. The restaurant itself is very lovely and cosey, service is snappy and efficient. Food was lovely, definitely recommend for a dining experience key tip is to go early as it soon fills up. Would definitely revisit.

Visited this restaurant twice during my last visit to Dublin. The place is located in the midst of Temple Bar, offers amazing and good quality irish food, good service and affordable prices. Try no. 18 on the meny ;)
