Six of us dropped in here after doing the Dublin bay cruise one Saturday afternoon. We got mainly wings, chips, BLTs and club sandwiches. Everbody was happy with their food and I personally enjoyed my large portion of wings. Service was good and the drinks were as they should be. Definitely a nice option for a quick snack and a...

This was a 'works' occasion with over 20 people to be served. Given it was also over lunch, time really was of the essence and the Harbourmaster delivered what we needed. Food was pre-ordered and once everyone was seated the dishes were served, such that within five minutes of the last chair being filled we were all matched up with... More

We had rented a flat near to this restaurant. The first 2 times we tried to dine here at the end of a day touring, we were turned away as the kitchen had closed (before 8:30pm). The bar was nicely busy, but we wanted a meal. The location was pretty, on the quay, dining outdoors would have been nice. Unfortunately... More

Our waitress didn't speak English that well (she was Asian, not Irish) which got things off to a poor start. The other staff were nowhere near as friendly and helpful as is usual in Ireland. The restaurant was close to Jury's Inn where we were staying, which was good as it rained in the evening. The selection of food was... More

Went back especially for the chicken wings. They are nothing like they used to be. Terrible, dried out and covered in a terrible sauce. The premises need an overhaul. The toilets are terrible. I wish I went with the kids for the pizza.

Invited to rendezvous at short notice by friend, never realised there was a restaurant upstairs! Food was good and menu varied. Pity music was a little on the 'too loud' side, thus much cocking of heads and unnecessary lending to hear each other.

Visit ruined by strong smell of drains. I'm sure I would've enjoyed it more if there wasn't that going on. I've heard good things so I will give it another go.
