Have had several family dinners here and it's a great spot. Lovely Irish food. Good range of fish and meat dishes. I particularly love their prawns. Well worth a visit.

This was the best meal we had in Dublin. The food was elegantly prepped of locally sourced ingredients. The service, cheerful and prompt. We walked in and the manager of the hotel we were staying at was seated next to us with his party. A local's favorite.

A bit of an unusual entrance through the pub to an upstairs room but very intimate and comfortable. Lamb shepherds pie and chicken both well cooked and very good. Good wine choice. We were in time for early bird menu which was excellent value for money.

Take the time to stop for terrific service and flavourful food. We met two other couples there from our tour group and they also enjoyed the food and service

Fantastic restaurant, service was so good you didn't even notice it. The food was top notch. The early bird is great value and when u have the pub below make sure you have a sneaky pint there after your meal.. Don't look any further
