You will find the chef at the front cooking. Nothing to hide. There is a little patio at the back which is secluded. I went for breakfast there and I can assure you that the eggs benedict that I had with mushrooms and spinach was 100% made from scratch and at the moment. Go there with enough time since the... More

Had heard about this place some time ago and on Thursday last managed to secure a last minute table for two for dinner. It's bring your own but there's an off license adjacent for those last minute drinks. Okay let's point out the obvious first. This place is small, space is tight and it's elbow to elbow but it's quirky... More

My wife and I went out to eat and found this place by chance. The first thing you notice are the words 'no menu' We were greater with a smile shown to our table and were told how they cook everything from fresh ingredients that day. The waiter told me it was bring your own drink and sent me next... More

We walked by on our way into town, the place was being run by two young guys, Argentinian and Venezuelan. They prepared us a great and simple breakfast, perfect egg, pancake, bacon and sausage. The coffee was excellent. Will go again tomorrow. Must be said that the interior was poor, and could be spruced up without losing the charm of... More

I ate here with a group of friends based on a recommendation from one of the couples in the group who have had a few enjoyable nights here. Everything was scatty, disorganised and poorly run from the moment we arrived. The restaurant was tiny and we were put down the back on a table that would just about fit 4... More

We visited Ireland for slightly less than two weeks and had delicious food everywhere. This meal was memorable only because it was so terrible. The food was unappetizing and seemingly prepared without much care. We also noticed the chef referring to a cookbook, not what one would expect in a restaurant with these prices. The chairs were rikety and the... More

On our second city visit to Dublin we have again made a bee line to Rigby's enjoying an impromptu supper, a wonderful breakfast and a delicious dinner all within our three day stay. As always owner James ensures the personal touch and attention to details with the food that make the whole experience such a pleasure. The "bring your own"... More

A local directed us here saying it was the coolest place with the best food in the neighborhood. They were right. We found a slim, dark, hole in the wall venue with an open, short order grill looking kitchen and a friendly, yet intense chef running the show. What we received was the most creative, flavorful, wonderful meal of our... More

Basically we experienced awful service by all staff members encountered but most significantly by the chef proprietor. Order wasn't taken for over an hour and half and then when it was there was a wait of over an hour between courses. When questioned we were blamed as not appreciating "the time it takes to create magnificent food"?? The time as... More
