Visited this restaurant and paid 15 euros for some spaghetti in tomato sauce. Asked for some Bacon, didnt get any. Was expensive and plain. Also was charged 3 euros for a can of coke. I know Dublin is expensive but will not be paying these types of prices again.

Good food, pleasant service. Small restaurant in Temple Bar. Could have thought of better music than gangsta rap and booties ;-)
