Wonderful wine bar!

We just stopped in for drinks but can’t wait to return and also to try out the other Ely locations in Dublin. The wine list by the glass offers a nice selection and the Calamari were yummy!

This chef knows good food and what to do with it! Our starter of goat's cheese on sliced fig was topped with no less than four different toppings including mustard seed which had been blanched and chilled 7 times. Such detail! This was followed by scallop on hock with crispy black puddings and butter sauce. I can still taste it!... More

This was our first time here, at lunchtime, underground in vaulted wine cellars built in the early 1800's. The venue is stunning for its originality, well restored from its days as a bonded warehouse. And with the circular ceilings comes circular food. We had two main course specials off the blackboard menu, the one was shin beef, shredded into a... More

For visitors to Dublin, this is a great restaurant to visit. Housed in what looks to be the old storage vaults to the Docks area, there is a lot of charm and character to the place. Food was really good, I went with Irish Lamb, which is always delicious. The desert was fantastic and I had to waddle my way... More

I was passing by on Wednesday afternoon and as it was a fab sunny day my partner & I decided to stop over in Ely IFSC for a drink on the terrace. We were greeted by a very friendly blonde hostess who served us our drinks. She was super attentive and professional. She told us about the art exhibition next... More

Brilliant food and service, amazing building and coped well with a large group including 4 small children. Food was sublime especially deserts although portions were not massive. Went to extra effort for the birthday girl which was a nice touch.

Just been for another fab meal in Ely, IFSC, Dublin. My previous meals here were with big parties [30 plus] but this was just 2 of us and the food was just fab, not to mention the wines! The staff are very knowledgeable about wine and offer great tips on what matches the food. It was a very relaxing meal... More

I’ve been to the bar before and is really nice, cool relaxed atmosphere and though a little bit overpriced it’s worth the price. The restaurant is unfortunately another story, the venue is truly amazing, in the bottoms of the chq building, a former tobacco and wine warehouse, the ambience and the decoration are stunning, no questions about it. Unfortunately when... More
