Great Food

Lovely friendly staff and food is fabulous. Really good value if you eat before 6.00pm. Located in Temple Bar area. Food is also beautifully presented.

We've been in Dublin 4 days, and this is our favorite place in Temple Bar, hands down. Service was fabulous... had a lovely conversation with Irish staff about the merits of Bushmill vs Jameson. Tried these entrees, all of which were delicious : Irish stew (5 stars), Cottage pie (5 stars), roasted vegetables (5+ stars), pannini (4.5 stars), potato leek... More

Found this gem after searching for a suitable place to have a Celebratory meal after a great swimming competition by my sister. At first I was a bit unnerved by being led up a small staircase to the restaurant, but was amazed by the gorgeous, rustic interior. Lots of old Guinness merchandise and other Dublin related memorabilia. We timed our... More

We were in Dublin last weekend and were looking for a quick and good lunch and I have to say we were surprised to find it at the Old Mill Restaurant in Temple Bar. Food was very good. Service was great! and the prices seem reasonable. In a pinch this place is a good spot.

In the middle of tourist area surprisingly good value for money. Friendly accurate staff, service was fast and flawless. We popped in for lunch after 2 so the restaurant was rather empty, which made it very comfortable. The interior is what you expect from a typical Irish restaurant, with lots of dark wood and ornamental stuff on the walls. Menu... More

If you want excellent service along with great food, go to The Old Mill! It is in a very trendy area of Dublin where there are many bars and restaurants to choose from, but I must say, we were very happy to have found this gem. The ambience was awesome and the fact that it had an upstairs eating area... More

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
