Food poor, not sure how they all the good ratings!!!!! Had the early bird. Had Lasagna and chips, Lasanga was tasteless, seriously if you cant get a good Lasanga in an Italian there is something wrong. Had Profiteroles for dessert. Again poor, chewy and nothing like Profiteroles. We also got a complimentary dessert to try on the side. Some sort... More

Popped in on a sunday evening with three colleagues. Very pleased with the level of service. Staff were attentive and were willing to arrange for the kitchen to accomodate specific dietary requirements. Food was very good. Presentation was perhaps not of the highest level but portions were generous and quality of ingredients high - arguably the more important aspects! We... More

We enjoyed our dinners so much here, that we visited this restaurant twice during our 4 day visit to Dublin. It is located in the little village of Ballsbridge, which was within walking distance of our guesthouse, The Ariel House. Everything is freshly prepared here - the pizza crusts are thin and airy, the toppings fresh and tasty, and the... More

I have been here many times over the past 5 years and never been disappointed. Service is always good - friendly and efficient. Menu is simple but good. Tasty food and good quality. Decent wine list and good standard of house wine. Good for couples,groups or for business people on their own.
