We visited for dinner and drinks at the end of our whirlwind uk/ireland tour and this was by far the best food and drinks of the trip. Great service and cocktails… the steak was a little over cooked but still delicious. Staff were attentive and friendly and meals and drinks great value. They can do a pint as Arthur intended....

Just visited the Sussex again after first visiting in January. Once again the food was excellent. Having previously rated the fish and chips at the Merrion as the best in town, I now revised my view and put the Sussex at No 1! The specials starter of smokies were to die for, and my partner's steak was faultless. Service is... More

They slipped us in on a walk-in – lovely food, unbeliveable garlic prawns on toast, and great burger, couldn't finish it all – really nice find above the pub which was busy and looked fun!

This was a good quality place to eat with a good selection of food. I had the soup as a starter and it was really nice and fine. Had the shepherds pie for my main course which was excellent except there was not a lot of it. Canny place overall

We had a lovely (if jetlagged) supper in a great atmosphere with excellent service. One had fish & chips: light, crispy, well seasoned. Another had the hake fish of the day. Beautiful presentation. The Early Bird Special made it a real bargain, and we recommended it to friends coming a week after us.

For our last evening in Ireland, we choose to eat at this restaurant based on recommendations from our tour guides. We were NOT disappointed. Located above it's pub, this restaurant served fantastic food and drinks. Although small, the restaurant is quite modern with gorgeous wood furnishings and large windows. The food was fantastic and if you get there in time,... More

Didn't even know this restaurant existed but went here a few weeks back with friends & had a great night. Food is perfect if you're out with a gang, staff fantastic & the restaurant itself is bright & modern. Would definitely return.

Had lunch one afternoon here. The waiters were slow and seemed disinterested but the cook and the food were amazing. He really is talented! Loved our lunch.
