A review that favours caution for tourists. The indigenous taste buds seem geared to the soft subtle flavours on offer in Ireland and Britain. Some of the dishes in this part of the world are equisite, fish pies and complex onion gravies that I really love - some pretty good sausage too. When done well the local food is tasty... More

Fish and chips were fab! We asked for salt and vinegar and there wasn't any vinegar and their mushy peas were not good which is why I've downgraded to 4*. Visited the chip shop by Christ Church. A must stop if you want proper fish and chips!

Fish had too much batter and grease, and the chips were soggy. The only things I liked about this place are the friendliness of the staff, and being allowed to buy a glass of beer next-door and bringing it back here.

A trip to Ireland is not complete without a stop at our favorite Fish & Chip place, Leo Burdock's in Dublin. in 2011, we visited the Temple Bar location, and this trip, we stopped at the shop just a half a block from our hotel, Jurys Inn-Christchurch. Both had the same great food! And such huge portions! We got one... More

It took us awhile to find Leo Burdock's - it is tucked away behind the main street and right near Christ Church! It was certainly worth the effort to find it! When we popped in, there were some locals inside ordering. They were very sweet and told the employees that it was our first night in Dublin and that we... More

Enough fish, twice as many more potatoes and nothing had any flavor. Maybe I should've used more malt vinegar. Like the whole bottle. Prices a bit much. Will wait till London and try again. This is take away, no tables.

Our taxi driver said Leo Burdock's had the best fish and chips in Ireland and he was right! You walk into this very small place and order. There were 3 guys very busy behind the counter, cooking and filling orders. Friendly enough seeing that they were swamped. We got our order and walked up to just across the street from... More

Delicious Fish and Chips to go! We ordered the fish and chips and their amazing cheesy garlic chips. Service was friendly and helpful. Ordering was quick. I can't say it was the best fish we had in Ireland, but the cheesy garlic chips were out of this world. Don't forget to grab silverware :)

although not exactly easy to find...at least not for us we were so glad we did. friendly, fast service. And extra napkins for our picnic lunch on the grounds of the nearby Church made this a great lunch.portions were huge- enough to share!

It certainly did not meet the hyped up expectations we had from reading reviews on Yelp, but it was good. Not worth a trip out of your way good, but good to pop in on your way along the route.
