Great to discover this place as I find the brunch options around town just okay. I love the new decor and the staff are friendly and helpful. Overall I would recommand a visit here,... More

I was starting to lose any hope of finding decent scrambled eggs in Dublin. Most places serve them runny, flavourless and white-ish. The ones in the new gastro area of the Front Lounge are probably the best I've had in years, not to mention the great brioche, the fresh salmon and the chips. Can't wait to go back and try... More

The only bit better than the 'Burger Gambas', the Whiskey Sour, and the great company, was the Waitress Martha. Well done guys, keep up the great work. We will be back!

I visited the front lounge as a group of six. We were looking to have a nice main course before a night out. As we were regulars before the front lounge made its interior changes it was decided we'd go there to check out the menu. I'm not going to lie we were all disappointed. The food itself was lovely...
