I visited the Grapevine for the 3rd or so time on Saturday evening. I had rang to make a booking for the early bird menu and was told that was fine and we had to leave the table at 7.30 pm, which was absolutely fine too. The early bird gives you 3 tapas of your choice (up to €6.95) for... More

Ate here with my partner monday evening the 11th. We were greeted with a smile from our waiter who seemed to be working alone. We ordered some tapas and fine wine and enjoyed the evening. From the excellent and friendly service to the delicious and affordable tapas we had a fantastic night. Would highly recommend. Will be back!

Arrived here @ 9:25pm, having phoned earlier and been told they served until 10pm. We were tackled at the service desk by the man who would later be our waiter. He said he would check if we could eat and left us in the company of his colleague, who simply rolled her eyes and turned away. He came back moments... More

I love the food here!!!! It's the perfect spot for date night or meeting up with friends. The food is just amazing the hummus and melba toast and chicken liver pâte are my personal faves with the cheese board thrown in the middle of everything. But I was a bit disappointed when I found the chorizo salad was gone off... More

Nice, but bit pricey. Food menu is good and wine list impressive. Had a lovely evening with my girlfriends there, but make sure to book in advance as it is busy on weekends.

The service was excellent, however if I want to go to the toilet a lot id usually opt for a laxative as my resort not food. Turned a lovely stay in the city to a night of discomfort very poor quality food will never step foot into this establishment again.
