I popped in for some brunch on Good Friday; nice seating outside on a beautiful day. Amazing selection of eggs Benedict dishes to choose from but i settled on the gambas option in the end. The right decision! The prawns were huge, the eggs (yes, both of them) perfectly cooked, the avocado very complimentary and the home-made fries were unexpected... More

Went here on Sunday for brunch. The mad rush seemed to have quietened down then. It had a nice decor. The menu is great, there is something for everyone! The service was poor and I hate saying that unless it is true. It seemed like we were a nuisance for the waitresses. They paid no attention to us at all.... More

We went to Whitefriar for dinner on our last evening in Dublin based on great reviews. We had been eating bland food and were ready for something a little more interesting. We were seated but told they needed the table in an hour which was no problem at all. Service was pretty good considering only two people appeared to be... More

I went on Easter Sunday for Brunch and was disappointed. I ordered the pulled pork without the bread and when it arrived the best description I can give the temperature is tepid and went to cold long before I had finished eating. Same goes for the chips. The other member of the party ordered the Chicken Burger and while it... More

I had an awful experience here in April. I visited this restaurant with 6 friends. We went for the early bird menu. We booked the table for half 6, and were aware that the table was available until half 8. The service was extremely slow, which lead to us not being allowed to have a desert as the table was... More

I have been to this restaurant a number of times and have never been disappointed. Last night, dining there on a Rewarding Times voucher which consisted of 3 courses, a cheese plate and a bottle of wine, was no exception. Unlike some other restaurants which tend to treat voucher holders as second class citizens, the staff here were friendly and... More

We had 3 courses with a carafe of wine, it was only €55 between 2 people...we upgraded to a bottle of prosecco for only a small cost. The group ordered chicken wings & the rabbit gnocchi to start, we were amazed at how... More

Had brunch here with a mate on saturday. Booked in advance which was a good thing as it was really busy. I had steak and eggs, and he had eggs benedict. Both were gorgeous. We also had two peach bellinis, a big glass of wine each and a coffee each. Came to €65 between us, which is slightly pricey for... More

Went for dinner on a busy Friday evening. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and excellent service despite the fact that the place was full. Colm looked after us very competently - always available but not intrusive. The Steak and Ribs combo was superb and the Salt Caramel Eton Mess deserves a special mention. We will... More
