OK

I've dined in this restaurant on several occasions. Their menu has plenty of choice, starting of healthy super salads to very different tuna or steak on the stone. It is different way of dining, I love it as cooking your own fish or steak makes it so much fun and you are just so busy! Floor Staff... read more

The gimmick of cooking your own steak is a pretty poor one. Parts of my fillet steak were overdone and parts were under - because I was too busy talking to my friends to concentrate on cooking! The steak is also more expensive than other steakhouses. Also, I burnt my hand on the hot stone. The mains menu is quite... More

We turned up on our first night in Dublin, without a reservation and faced with the prospect of being turned away from this busy restaurant. However, we could not have had a more friendly welcome and were offered a table downstairs, not used for reservations because it was a slightly odd layout. We were offered both the regular menu and... More

The food was delicious I would like to say so well done to the chefs but the rest of our experience was terrible. We went in to dine as a couple and we had a voucher which I would say was why were were treated as lesser importance but we seen other tables getting very frustrated with the waiter too... More

Booked for a Sunday Evening in January and opted for the 25 euro per person menu. For the standard of food we received, this was outstanding good value for money. The chicken wings and bread selection to begin with was great, very tasty and the chicken was so tender. The selection of steak cuts on the stone for 2 people... More

Absolutely amazing restaurant. I'm a very fussy eater and had sirloin steak and plain chips. It was amazing and stunning !!! Went back there following night again as it was so nice. Pricey, but worth it!!! Delicious.

My girlfriend and I had dinner here on a Saturday night. It was busy and had a lovely atmosphere. We ordered the duck and beef starter to share which was surprising and tasty. I had the fillet on a stone and my partner had the tuna on a stone. As they cook on our table the food came out very... More

Booked and specifically asked for a booth which was confirmed when the restaurant called back to confirm my booking. Arrived five minutes early and was told our table was almost ready, it was pointed out to us by the host at the door. We stood by the table and watched as it was cleared and reset but just then another... More

We spent 4 days in Dublin recently and this was the food highlight of the trip. We had heard great things, so went all out with 3 courses (when in Rome!). The starters were amazing but the mains were what really impressed; we ordered 'on the stone' and my tuna and my boyfriends steak were served just so - on... More

I went for dinner here for my other half's birthday, having bought a voucher online which was for a 3 course meal for two with a bottle of wine and two cocktails. The food was amazing! I had the tempura salmon which was crispy with lovely dressing. The glamburgers for the main were amazing and very filling! There was lots... More
