I ate here last night with my husband and I was so impressed with the service and our food. The tapas choices are beautiful and so much to choose from. We were served by a really pleasant young man and our whole experience from start to Finish was outstanding.

Good atmosphere and it's just a nice place to eat. Good menu and wine list. We often go here for that special night out, and spend a couple of hours sipping fine wine and good food.

We met with another couple for an early bite to eat after viewing art exhibitions, our waiter tom was knowledgeable about the food on the menu and the wine to choose. Each tapas had a unique taste ,we shared a variety of dishes. it was an enjoyable and tasty experience.

Dropped into this busy restaurant without a booking, although it was booked out we were told that we could eat at the bar. Food was delicious and would eat there again.

This is a great alternative to traditional Irish food when you are traveling and eating that every day. The quality of the tapas were excellent and the prices were fair. The service was good and friendly.

We love this restaurant and visit on average once per month. Last night we had a party of six for a family birthday. All was good, food, service, drinks. My daughter had baked a birthday cake which was brought to the restaurant some hours in advance. So, cake was brought out which we cut and all fine. Bill was produced... More

We visited this place for an aperitif and we ended up staying for dinner as well. We tried 5 different dishes, excellent service, fresh simple tasty food. Only disappointment THE CHEESE PLATE IS RIDICULOUSLY SMALL AND TOO EXPENSIVE.
