We arrived on a Monday night and waited for a table to open up on the balcony -- usually you have to book in advance -- and it was well worth it. We had a drink at the horseshoe bar and admired the busts of famous Irish poets, the ornate high ceilings, the tile floors, all originally in what must have been a beautiful bank. We were dressed a little more formally than other customers (we'd just come from Paris), but there were many groups of tourists dressed casually and it didn't seem to matter. My husband had the roast chicken; I had the fish and chips. We were both a little surprised at how bland the food tasted -- the seasoning was too subdued. It was a good meal, a stand-out atmosphere and a great first night destination in Dublin.
