The restaurant we were referred to was closed so we ended up in the kitchen and it was a great save. Small place with friendly waitstaff. We had the soup that was sweet potato and it was outstanding. Our entrees were curry chicken, marinated grilled chicken and "award winning spiral sausage" all were very good. I would definitely go out... More

Usually go for lunch but decided to go for an early dinner on Sunday. The Rib-Eye was out of this world! We also had a special chocolate ice cream tart which was to die for. Staff friendly and welcoming as always. Will definitely be returning.

Walked in, dealt with a sassy bald Asian male waiter. He was profiling us, guess you have to come in here dressed up or something ...he was being polite to everyone else except us with major attitude. We might look young but we are well into our 30's. Anyhow, truly disappointed because we read that the food here was delicious.... More

The food here was very, very good. Starter was crispy calamari salad. Well presented and the tomato chilli jam really set the calamari off. For main. a truly excellent cajun creole jambalaya - thoroughly enjoyable. A nice touch, I thought were the Irish Craft beers, a nice diversion from the 'mandatory. Guinness! So why only 4 starts? The service, although... More

I came in here for a hiding place and in search of a little bit of class and a good espresso, amidst the tacky other Grafton street options, on Thursday. I received a warm welcome and my delicious coffee was seamlessly enjoyed. Top staff

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
