Whilst showing friends around this part of Dublin we popped in for a pint and savoured the atmosphere of a real Dublin pub

As we were staying really close to the Lord Edward we looked it up on this site and decided to pay a visit. As others have rightly said the food is of a very good quality. It is not cheap, as you would expect from a prime location. The entrance would easily put you off, but the experience is worthwhile.... More

Love this restaurant. The great service is matched by the food. They have ban extensive menu with plenty of dishes. From seafood standards to unique plates. The waiters are articulate and educated enough about the menu to recommend items and work with you to find the right dish for your taste. All of this is served in spacious dinning rooms... More

Came upon this restaurant by chance as I was staying in the locality. There is a lounge/bar area downstairs and we were directed to the 3rd floor restaurant. I must say my impression was somewhat tainted by the décor, which I can only describe as 'quaint' but I was spotted by the waiter and seated before I had a chance... More

This hidden gem is on the third floor of the building - you just keep climbing stairs until you come to a room that appears to be the sitting room of a B&B, lots of small groupings of tables and benches and comfy chairs, with a bar at the side. It feels like a private club dining room and is... More

Not a great choice of fish the night we were there and the restaurant is more like an old fashioned tea room. The evening was made more fun by the waiter who was amusing and very efficient

Because I live locally I have passed this place a billion times but last week I decided to meet a friend there for a pint and some bar food. The Lord Edward is up there with the Long Hall and McDaids as Dublin's 'authentic' Iris pubs that didn't commit to a chrome and leather overhaul during the boom years. 'Authentic'... More

My favourite restaurant in Dublin since 1987! Fresh seafood, my favourite is the grilled turbot on the bone. The restaurant is on the 3rd floor and is great for a quiet lunch. Old world athmosphere is charming and service is personal and attentive.

We were recommended this by a local resident and it was a good experience. The food was good if not a bit overpriced. We eat out 3 times and this was the most expensive. But service was good and the two waiters were a joy to talk with. Hard to realise there was a restaurant here as it is upstairs... More

Very poor quality - basically fish served in what only could be described a variety of packet soups that pass themselves as sauces and all for nearly €30 for one main course. A real rip off!
