Excellent find tucked away on Nassau street. You may pass it if you aren't looking. Delicious French inspired, cozy restaurant. I would have given it 5 stars, but the cheesecake came in a jar, and it wasn't what I was expecting. Must try, for sure!

Had to book for lunch, a very popular place and worth the visit. Creative but hearty food. Would sure to go again.

The entrance does look like you are entering a café over a shop but persevere and you will find a little surprise. Nice atmosphere, friendly service, good choice of food, all delicious and if you make it to dessert you are in for a real treat, all served in a stripy sweetie bag, really good fun and a great way...

Food was really good, and found courses I haven't seen in Dublin before. The service was as well really great. We had 45€ 3 course menu, so not the cheapest one. so if you rather want cheaper meal, you can find many other places, but this was top notch quality.

A short walk up a flight of stairs lead one into a large light filled room with high ceilings and a view of the Trinity sports fields A farm to table spot with a snout to tail menu. We went with a pigs nuckle terrine for an appetizer (do pigs have nuckles?) which... More

I have always wanted to try this place since it has its reputation and eventually, today evening was the day. The wine was lovely, and food was great. The desert came somewhat unique way as the cheese cake came in a jar wrapped up with a check patterned pink envelop which was so cute. The staff were amazing, as they... More
