we visited this restaurant August 21 and I must say it is in a brilliant location, the food is amazing and the staff are courteous and very professional. We took the LUAS from our hotel and in around 30 minutes we arrived at our stop which is literally just across the road from the restaurant. It was a beautiful balmy... More

I highly recommend the partridge with pasta alfredo and the rack of lamb. We tried a few Irish whiskeys, including the Green Spot, which was our favorite!

I had the Blak Pudding and Violetta Potatoes here about a year ago. the food was excellent though I did make a comment that if they had added lemon juice to the potatoes at the time of basking them would have made the purple more vivid. Very good quality restaurant

Georges dock is almost at the end of the Red line in Dublin, just before you actually get to Dublin Docks. This is a very good restaurant on two levels. Smart downstairs and at floor level open and airy with mainly glass walls for views over the river and also outdoor seating. The service was generally good, a little slow... More

The setting and the restaurant is beautiful - lovely old cellar while not feeling too dark and dungeony. We went for the early bird menu (the food was good for the price we were paying for it) as we were heading to the 3 Arena for a Fleetwood Mac gig last Friday.
