only found this restaurant on trip advisor and we were delighted with the evening we had there. They have a 3 course deal for 30 euro and there is a large selection of dishes or choose from. Our party of 3 each choose a different starter, main and desert course. Everyone was happy with their dishes and we were totally... More

This is one of my favourite places to go for brunch in Dublin. The food is excellent quality and tastes great. I've been here several times and I've never been disappointed. Also, their desserts are to die for.... I can never resist!

We dined here one evening recently and it was a mixed experience. The service was very good, with the waitress anticipating most of our requests before we asked. The food was excellent from the goat's cheese starter to the baked cod main course. The problem we had was that there appears to be a storage space out the back which... More

Staff in here are lovely, however the quality of the food does not match. Living locally we wanted to go somewhere for Sunday brunch so popped down here. Service was good, coffee and juices were good, however the breakfasts themselves were a huge disappointment. I ordered scrambles eggs on toast - out came a plate with toast, 2 rashers and... More

I love love love this place. The décor, style, and service are so welcoming and just pitched perfectly and the staff are lovely. I have tried nearly all their muffins, they are the best I have had in Dublin, maybe because they are so big, and their carrot cake is fabulous. My favourite thing to order is the Super-Food Salad...

Have been a regular for the last few years but it had been a while since I'd been for dinner so decided a visit was needed! It's safe to say it didn't disappoint! Food was so tasty and fresh even though we were stuffed after our mains we couldn't resist sharing a dessert! A special mention must go out to... More

The food was just... well Lovely... prawns and squid for starter, then pork and risotto for mains. The Pork was just devine. We shared a mars bar cheese cake for... More

I had seen this restaurant for months before turning up without a reservation a while ago. The place was quite full but the waitress managed to get us a table anyway without any hassle. We were seated next to a large (very) loud group on a girls' night out but that's not the fault of the restaurant. We ordered the... More
