Food was bloody fantastic and plentiful. You certainly won't leave hungry. Waiting staff were efficient and informative. The decor and ambiance are unique and the food was served with a touch of class. Good work guys.

Called Hatters same day and mentioned that we had a 4 plus a 3 year old. No problem...7:30. Perfect booth, perfect food, perfect atmosphere and service. Hatter's is a cozy, wonderful place to meet up, share and say see you soon...In our case, see you in two years. So, looking forward to returning to Ireland & to Hatters in 2016!... More

We at ehere with some friends and I have to say that each and every one of us was impressed with the choice, quality and taste of our meals. the one drawback is that they have tried to put in so much seating that it is now very cramped and overcrowded... Nice place tho....

I went for a meal here and thought the food was great, it's not to big inside but because of this, it gives a nice homely cosy feel to it. It has great food and very helpful service

We found the place to be expensive for what we got , service was average , food was acceptable but nothing out of this world , steak was small for 23 euros , very small and packed dining room , very uncomfortable, don't think I'll be returning.
