The service was attentive and assisted with the need to channel many orders through the interpreter. Soup looked lovely, as did a seafood salad. I... More

This is one of my default choices when meeting friends for dinner in Dublin. Really good honest food and an excellent wine list. It's not too fancy, nor is it overly casual. It hits the right balance and is completely reliable

Went to Ely for lunch while at the Christmas Market in the Docklands. They do lunch speciasl or a more extensive menu. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was good, they plug the Burren beef quite heavily. The only complaint I have was with the wine prices, a whopping 10.50 euro for a glass of house sauvignon... More

We were going to a concert in 3 Arena in early December. Had booked this restaurant but unfortunately arrived late due to underestimating Dublin Christmas traffic. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. They were very efficient , understanding and really nice. The food was excellent and wonderful ambience. I will certainly be back.

We ate here a bit earlier in the evening, as things we're quite packed nearing Christmas. The service was good and friendly, we had some great food (fish and steak) and definitively enjoyed ourselves.
