Had a wonderful experience ! Started with the deep fried tiger prawns in filo pastry, generous yummy portion of shrimps served with garlic sauce and a side of salad. Next was the scrumptious minced lamb mousakaa, layers of potatoes, aubergine, minced lamb, bechamel and then topped with mozzarella. Friends had the sirloin steak, generous portion and cooked to perfection. Had... More

I have been to Keskh Cafe numerous times now and I don't think it will ever tire of it. Yes it is a bit cramped and noisy but the food is so tasty - the mixed starter plater is to die for, a little (well quite big actually) plate of middle eastern goodness :) And as for the spicy potatoes... More

Met with two ex-work colleagues last evening at this restaurant. My first time there, but they had eaten there before. We had a lot to talk about, so it took a while to get around to ordering. This was no problem as staff was patient and courteous. After a starter of tasty falafels, the others ordered baked tiger prawns and... More

The BYOB policy here significantly lowered the bill which is always a plus in my book! During our meal we were served by two waitresses who were both very nice and helpful and seemed knowledgeable about the menu. I had the vine leaf rolls as a starter, and was a little skeptical about them being in a tomato sauce (I... More

We all really enjoyed our food. The staff was super friendly and helpful when we asked for advice. It is a great place to go when you want to drinks tons of wine as it is BYOB and there is no corkage. The spicy potatoes were wonderful as was the Shishtaouk. However, we also really enjoyed the lamb dishes that... More

Staying at the Mespil Hotel for four nights, we were starting to explore Dublin but didn't want a big meal. We ordered a variety of starters and enjoyed the food and the service so much that we broke our own rule about trying new places and went back again another night. We appreciated the unique menu and being unhurried while... More
