Very good bar food

A lively pub with very good bar food, eg steaks and burgers. Good for a pre-concert meal. That's all folks!

Went there the other night on a Deals Voucher. I must say all the food was reheated and not good at all. We both had prawn curry and you could count the number of prawns and lots of overcooked peppers. The garlic potatoes were burnt at the side of the dish and so thin and watery or milky! The wall...

I'm a big fan of chicken wings, and this place is definitely in my top 10. I have tried a good few other dishes too (caesar salad, chicken curry, half roast chicken and various pasta dishes to name but a few) and have always been very satisfied and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. The staff (particularly Veronika) are very friendly and... More

My wife and 2 kids were here at the weekend for the one direction concert. It's not my first time to come here. I often visit for lunch during office hours. It was a good choice for the gig as it is so convenient to get to the Three Arena from here. I had the chicken wings which are a... More

Visited here with my wife Oct 7th 2015. Staff were all very pleasant. Ordered Fillet steak ( New to the menu ) french fries& Onion rings. The fillet steak was tough and just about edible and difficult to cut even with a steak knife. The french fries appeared to have been deep fried more than once and were tasteless and... More

I met a friend for dinner there. I was looking forward to it but the noise level put me down at the beginning. Thankfully the staff were friendly and attentive. The starter was "Oven Baked Tiger Prawns In A Chorizo And Chilli Butter Served With Toasted Foccacia Bread" - very tasty and really spicy. The "Slow Braised Shank Of Wicklow... More

Went here on Tuesday evening with my daughter to use our groupon deal. The food and service was top notch. Not my first time here and never strayed from ordering the lamb.

We stopped in here on a recommendation or our hotel in the area. It was a nice place to have dinner and ambiance was great for friends and family to eat together. Good selection of fish and meat product to satisfy most customers.

Sinéad & I went here, after buying a voucher for 2 mains & 2 sides. This bar/restuarant is located at the beginning of the IFSC (coming from the city centre) and is really warm, welcoming bar, with a beautiful restaurant in the back. The restaurant has glass walls on one side, which give excellent views of the docks. There is... More
