Went here for lunch after a few peoples recommendations. Average to say the least. Greasy chips and the Pulled Pork is way way way over priced for what came on the plate. I would not return in a hurry.

I went there over the weekend with our family. We walked in and the place was empty, so sat at a table by the window. Waitress rushed over and asked if we would sit at a table further inside. We said we would prefer to sit at the window as it was a fine day, and she scowled at us.... More

Great stop for steaks. Not the friendliest service but fine. Good menu selections. Very good fries and mashed potatoes. Drinks a bit overpriced. Busy atmosphere.

We ate great steaks that were tender and juicy. The tortellini with butternut squash was really good also. All washed down with beautiful cold Guiness beer! The vibe and ambience is cool also! I recommend it!

We took the local train down from Central Dublin, as this is in Landsdown by Aviva Stadium. It was a couple of blocks walk past mostly residences. We went for lunch on a drizzly day, the restaurant was half full. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich (a little taste of home), very nicely done. I had the fishboard, which... More

Made dinner reservations here. Because it was listed as a best bet restaurant by our b&b in Dublin and it was featured by Anthony Bourdain on his Dublin show. A rather noisy, crowded smallish establishment ( highly rated -- right?? ) Excellent service ( have yet to get poor service anywhere in Dublin!! -- seriously!! ) Our party opted for... More

I came across this place,quite by accident,and realised it was a venue we had frequented years ago,when it was known as Rums D4. Although it is very much a meat eating establishment. They do have fish options and also a daily specials board. Great staff and atmosphere. There were 4 of us,and we were all very happy with our food.... More
