What a really nice spot that you would probably walk past without knowing. Behind the only fabulous bright pink door and up a flight of stairs you are greeted with a smile by friendly staff. We had lovely window seats looking out over trinity. The lunch menu offered a choice of 3 starters and three mains. All equally appealing on... More

This restaurant is spread over several floors of a row building opposite Trinity College. The food was very nicely prepared - the lamb shepherd's pie was excellent and different from the usual beef - the lamb was very tender. This was followed by an Irish coffee. The fish of my colleague was also excellent. The price was reasonable coming to... More

This restaurant offers high quality beautifully presented food in a lovely setting overlooking the grounds of Trinity. Starters such as goat's cheese with beets and crab with trout caviar are delicious while the main courses of beef, pork, chicken and fish are perfectly cooked and presented with modern twists. The dessert choice offers an exotic range which is served in... More

Probably the best meal we had in Dublin during our four nights there. The food was faultless and the staff professional and friendly. Will definitely book again next time I'm in town

What was less welcome was some sauce underneath the veal which was not mentioned on the menu. I asked the rude waiter (see later) what it was and it was apparently tartar source. I HATED it what ever it was,... More
