Quick dinner spot

Good food, quick service. This place was recommended to us from a local who specially recommended the chicken wings (they were pretty good), mussels are good , we also had an ice cream dessert that was delicious. Good choice to eat at temple bar area.

We read on trip advisor that they did really good pancakes so that was our main reason for visiting. The place looked nice, was really quiet and staff greeted us on arrival, but after ordering the food was quite a wait and service went downhill. When we got the food, the pancakes looked amazing and tasted perfect but the staff... More

Their hamburgers are fantastic! They are creative -- I had a mozzarella cheese pesto burger, others ordered the garlic burger and even the cheese burger was fantastic! Oh, the chicken wings are spicy and nice!

A crowded Saturday night in Temple Bar… looked at the menu, put our names in for the 45 minute wait and went around the corner to have a pint at a pub. Two of us decided to get dishes to share: Baby Back Spare Ribs in Molasses Ginger Glaze (falling off the bone and yummy!), steamed mussels in tomato/fennel broth... More

Haven't been here in a while, but it's a place we've always liked. Hubby and I went there when it first opened about 25 years ago and always loved the Sunday brunch. Now the kids(big kids!!!) love to go there for the buzz and the chicken wings. Popped in midweek with family and food was as reliable as ever. No... More

There is so much good food in Dublin, and this one is at the top of the list. Their breakfast is impeccable. Make sure you take a look at the business hours and go during the week. You have to get the pancakes. They are the best i've ever had. I ate here twice during my stay in Temple Bar.... More
