Tasty food, great service

Went for dinner with a friend. Tried the steak in the ciabatta bread with chips, it was really good and tasty, had a couple of pints of Kilkenny beer. The waiter was kind and professional all the time. They have free wifi.

We had quite a bad experience in this bar, as we were 7 people who came to eat and to watch the Rugby. We were told that We could see the Rugby in the restaurant area but we couldn't. The staff was rude to us not really cering aout our demands. The food is good but the service and all... More

We made two visits to the Quays Irish restaurant, whilst we were in Dublin. The first time was for dinner as we were heading into Temple Bar for a night of drinks. As we were passing we saw a sign advertising the special menu and decided to take a punt on it. We decided to eat from the early bird... More

We arrived in Dublin in the morning and were looking for somewhere for breakfast before exploring the city. We were so glad when we came across this restaurant offering a full Irish breakfast. The food and service were so good that we went back the next day too!

We recently visited The Quays restaurant on our first day in Dublin after searching round Temple Bar for lunch and were very impressed. Both meals (cottage pie, and the soup & sandwich combo) were excellent, well cooked and tasted homemade. For around €10 each it was very much worth it. All staff were very friendly and welcoming and if we... More

Me & partner stumbled upon this little place whilst visiting Dublin from the UK for my 30th! We were pleasantly surprised by the reasonable lunch prices for the area of Temple Bar (€10 for mains = £7.80 approx) plus the experience was made that much nicer by the attentitive warm & friendly staff & ambience of the restaurant/bar. The food... More

My wife and I had lunch here and, while we enjoyed the food, the place was jam-packed and pretty noisy with would-be diners queuing up at the bar and on the stairs to enter the restaurant ..... so it is clearly very popular situated, as it is, at one end of Temple Bar. We opted for simple food - a... More
