Brilliant choice and gluten free options But sadly no gluten free bread. Food of a good quality and the staff very nice. Cocktails were lethal but very enjoyable.

We ordered the tapas, everything, was awesome, the croquettes of iberico ham melted in your mouth we each had 3 different tapas the chorizo and potato was also great, the prices are very reasonable. The early bird was 16.95 with a glass of Cava. We probably go back before we leave Dublin.

There is a great choice of tapas, all tasty and delicate. We have been sitting outside as it was a warm evening, but the decor and atmosphere inside was pretty cool, many people of different ages, all clearly having a good time :) Staff are very friendly, ready to satisfy your needs. Price is average. Recommend it for a romantic... More

What I liked about this restaurant is that you could have each have starters and main course or you could share a variety of tapas meals. We were a party of 5 and decided to share. We order 10 different dishes between us to share and had the option of ordering more if needed. We didn't need to order any... More

The food here is very good but I had to rate the overall experience at "average" because of the cramped conditions in the restaurant. It would appear it is a case of trying to get as many as possible into a small area. Staff are friendly though very rushed.

By the time we had decided where to eat and walked around most of Dublin along the way it was 10pm before we found this place. The staff were welcoming and found us a table despite the late hour. The restaurant was packed and full of life. We sat outside on the lovely warm evening and the staff kept us... More

I had dinner at Salamanca with a couple of friends. To be honest, I was expecting something much better than this: we got the cheapest bottle of wine (around 25€ and it wasn't good), then the tapas were good but the portions were definitely small (especially the ham which wasn't pata negra but costed us around 15€..). At the end... More

The decor is stylish and tasteful. The staff are warm and friendly and I could not fault one of them on service. I've worked in hospitality 20 years and the service was impeccable. The sangria is the best my parents and I have ever had. The menu had a great variety of dishes and each one was delicious. We came... More

Restaurant was quite full, nice atmosphere. Wait staff were friendly. They brought us the wrong main first but immediately changed it when we asked. The wine glasses had quite a bit of fluff on them and I found what looked like an eyebrow hair attached to one of our chicken wings. The food was tasty enough but not amazing. The... More

Went here for cocktails and tapas. Great value at €7 per cocktail and good tapas. In particular the staff were very nice and chatty. Not haute cuisine but that's not what I was looking for
