Great Restaurant

Have visited here twice once for brunch. Had the pancakes and bacon which was lovely. Went back again for dinner and could not complain about anything. A must place to go and so close to Grafton Street. Staff very friendly, food very reasonable, chicken wings excellent. Will be back.

Looking for a nice casual spot in the city centre, and we decided to try somewhere new to us rather than a loca, favourite. The Kitchen had a nice looking menu with reasonable prices just off Grafton St, so we checked it out. It seemed busy and lively too. There quickly developed a sense of not particularly customer-focused service. Doors... More

Initial impressions are that this could be a quaint little gem just off Grafton st. Nice interior and welcome. Manager was so nice. Food was ok, my red curry was a little small portion for the price. Both my Friends burger and chicken dish were quite large in comparison, but not a big deal. Then we ordered a baked cheesecake,... More

Bang in the heart of Dublin, just yards from Grafton St, this small restaurant on two floors has good food and a good service. Nothing spectacular but we did enjoy the food and the setting. A good option if you're caught hungry on a shopping trip. Reasonable prices if you stay clear of alcohol, as always, in Dublin.

Visiting Dublin on a Bank Holiday weekend, we booked late for a table on Sunday evening. On arrival we were given a choice of a couple of tables for two, both well-positioned in the ground floor restaurant. From start to finish the reception we received from all the members of staff with whom we had contact was warm, friendly and... More

Great find! Quaint restaurant that offers amazingly, fresh cuisine at a decent price. I ordered the calamari to begin followed by the seafood special, which was comprised of shrimp, mussels, squid, and such. Both dishes tasty and service was good.

This is a lovely wee restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. Both times I visited, I had the early bird menu as it has a great range of food for the price! The food is really tasty, service is fast and staff are friendly.

This is a fairly small restaurant, but this adds to the charm. The menu is fairly short, so it won't take you long to make your mind up. The Veal curry was amazing, but I would suggest that however hot you like it, that you upgrade one level (maybe the Irish don't like a good kick?) And desserts are equally... More
