Four of us looking for somewhere to eat and were given a menu outside this restaurant. Went in just before 6 and ate the 2 course special. Chicken pâté was lovely, really tasty. Then had beef & Guinness stew which was gorgeous. However when bill came was a 10% service charge added on as there were four of us dining.... More

A popular restaurant in the heart of Temple Bar meant a wait for a table. And it was worth every minute. At first it was a bit uncomofrtable waiting at the top of the stairs in full view of everyone in the restaurant (one large room). But as the staff passed back and forth they would smile or comment "not... More

We traveled in from NY and stayed in the temple bar district and happened upon the old mill restaurant. The food was amazing, the service was wonderful. The pricing was fair and definitely worth the quality and portion size. We wanted to try several of the restaurants originally,but had such a great experience we returned the next night for another... More

We had a fantastic meal here on Monday. It was a gorgeous little restaurant upstairs in temple bar square. Lovely decor! Food was delicious and very decent portion sizes! They had pate on their menu and it was outstanding. I had the steak for main course and it was so tender and full of flavour! Would strongly recommend this place!... More

Ate here with a group of friends. Looks great on the outside but the staff and food let it down big time. Overpriced food, under trained staff. They also have the cheek to ask for 10% service charge for tables of 4 or more. Plus one of our party wasn't too hungry and only wanted something small but because it... More

We had a great meal here last week. I was so happy to see pate on the menu... It's one of my favourite things to eat and this was by far the best I've ever tasted!!!! I could've eaten it all night. The main courses were gorgeous and plentiful. Love the craft beer selection too. Great little place. Would definitely... More
