Early dinner on a busy Saturday night. We opted for the early bird menu - astonishingly good value. We both had two courses and were so full we simply couldn't manage a sweet. I had the trout pate followed by the pork belly. My husband opted for the salad and then the chicken, all the food was well cooked and... More

Went here for brunch last weekend and had a fabulous experience. We both ordered the ribeye steak medium rare with the poached egg and hollandaise sauce on top. Oh my god, the steak was so tender and delicious. It truly was a great meal. My partner had the rhubarb and blood orange mess dessert and found it very sweet and... More

Myself and four friends enjoy a most pleasant meal. I chose the three course meal for €23.95. The duck starter was delicious as was the pork mains. For dessert I had the bread and butter pudding which was beautiful. The staff where excellent and had great knowledge in regards to the wines on sale. I will be returning again

This place should be ranked in the top 5 surely. The food, staff and atmosphere were amazing. Great open kitchen where you could see the chef hard at work. We turned up in a party of 6 and were welcomed warmly. Nothing was too much trouble. Dublin craft beers and brilliant house wine. Good job everyone!

I thought the place was nice, great little book store on the ground level and then a very nice setting for a restaurant. The food was only OK thought I thought, and the service was not bad but nothing to write home about. Overall I give it a 7 out of 10. Would return if in the area.... Reservations recommended.

Excellent menus. Servers are very knowledgable about locally sourced ingredients and producers. Had a pot of smoked Fish and cheese app that was out of this world. Never had anything like it in a single dish. Beautiful start. They could have served me a steamed shoe after that and I've had enjoyed it.
