This was my first visit to this restaurant last week. It was Friday evening and first impressions were that it was quite noisy especially at the bar, but the crowd cleared away fairly early and did not disturb our night. I was shown to our table straight away which was lovely, there were 5 of us and we had a... More

Visited here again for lunch on New Years Eve - really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere - can be a bit expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

Recommended to us. Must book. We enjoyed delicious oysters, smoked salmon and superbly cooked grilled hake, with a pint of Guinness of course in this very busy Dublin restaurant. The staff were rushed off their feet and yet still made the time to be more than welcoming and we were served superb quality produce with friendly efficience throughout. Well done... More

Amazing dinner. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough for anyone who likes good fish. Perfectly cooked fresh fish, good service & relaxed atmosphere. Only thing that I can't get is the name of the restaurant! It's just not a "fishy" name! 🎣

Visited here on business as part of a large party. We were ordering from the set menu which has a good selection except for desserts. Staff were friendly and helpful and recommended various options. Go visit if you are in the area.

Delicious seafood and fresh fish. Sides were creative and plentiful. Various side tables so that one could easily hear another.

Had a couple of drinks here recently. It is a very nice restaurant & bar, well decorated and furnished to a very high standard. It was early evening and at the start of the week so it wasn't particularly busy. The staff were very nice and welcoming. A little on the expensive side at €7.50 for a glass of white... More

The food was good but they missed off the blue cheese in the beetroot salad. The waitress did say she'd tell chef. Then they couldn't do one of the special mains as a starter. Everything was rushed & rudely 'proclaimed' to the table. No interaction, it was like the staff didn't want to hear us or listen at all. I... More

From the outside it doesn't look much but walk through the door and it's a different story. Great atmosphere. All the staff are really helpful and the food and wine are superb. If you visit Dublin this is a restaurant I would recommend!
