This was a fresh, delicious meal with great flavours. It's unusual to get such a healthy meal with fresh vegetables and healthy meats. We loved our mixed salad, and the smoked salmon salad, and the red pepper soup for appetisers. For mains, we really liked the chicken dish, and the ribeye. Everything is clearly identified as GF or DF or... More

Strongly recommended casual eatery with quality dishes. affordable seafood and classics from world cuisine. I had the daily special (seafood chowder) which was lovely. The burgers also looked great though I didn't try those. I'll go again.

This restaurant does a good early bird menu. The food is a lot of the standard options for good Irish restaurants, but with a twist. For example, the redang curry is light and comes mild, hot or spicy. I had the middle one, and next time I would go one hotter. It had fresh cut herbs and cooked baby tomatoes... More

Stumbled across this place walking down Grafton Street, really attracted by the choice to sit outside and the €20 2 course dinner offer, really reasonable for Dublin. WIne and beer not too expensive either. Nice atmosphere, no fuss and lovely food so we were really happy!

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner last night. We ordered the 2 courses for €19.95, thinking what a good deal it was (both ordered the manhattan Style chowder and I ordered the monkfish scampi, he ordered the venison curry). Both of us had average at best meals - the 'chowder' was tomato sauce with a few prawns and... More

We had brunch here on Sunday morning and really enjoyed it. I had pancakes with bacon and maple syrup and my wife had soup, we also had a coffee each. Everything was lovely and service was good.

My husband and I had the 3 course early bird dinner. Even though I don't have to eat gluten-free, I went with all gluten-free options. It was nice to see that there was that possibility in a full 3 course meal.
